Mary R's notes for this recipe:
My mother use to make this cake for Christmas or Easter..As the years have gone by ,she now use's a box cake mix instead scratch cake ..Frankly ,there is no difference in taste...You can use fresh ,frozen or caned peaches ..I use the canned freestone peaches ,well drained..

This sounds wonderful, Mary. I have peaches in the freezer from this summer. They were HUGE and on sale. I may have to make this before it gets too cold. It kinda screams warm weather to me, but, you know...it just sounds so good!
