    Even my picky kids love this! I came up with it when I was trying to find ways to use all the peaches on my tree.

    I baked this in a stoneware 9x13 and just used cooking spray, no flour. Pieces came out beautifully. My batter was also sticky but no fear, the cake also came out wonderfully moist. To spread the batter evenly in the bottom of pan, I just dipped the back of my spoon in a little flour each time I spread it. For the 2nd layer of batter on top of the peaches, I just plopped dollups of batter all over; it spread together very nicely. I used fresh peaches which were very juicy. I was worried it would be messy (too wet) but the cake batter cooked everything evenly together. I didn't modify any of the ingredients and comments I received from coworkers were 1) wasn't sweet at all, perfect flavor; 2) very moist; 3) very delicious. Definitely a KEEPER! One of which I'll be making again SOON!  -  12 Jul 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Nice and easy to make and tastes pretty good. It seems to me that it is missing something...maybe some cinnamon mixed into the batter or sprinkled on the peaches. I did have to omit the pecans because my son is allergic to nuts, but the topping tasted good anyway.  -  18 Aug 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Excellent recipe. Cake came out light and delicious. I used non fat plain yogurt instead of sour cream. That was the only change I made. The batter spreads easily with a metal spatula. It may not seem like enough batter when you're spreading it - but it is. Thanks for a great recipe!  -  03 Aug 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
