gaynel's notes for this recipe:
When I worked at the school, we had a potluck breakfast once a month. I took this cake and everyone raved over it and none was left. I have searched and searched for this recipe and finally found it today. Actually I bought the peaches yesterday and thought if I didn't find it I'd wing it on my own and try to rediscover it. Found it today and will be making it again soon so I can supply a picture. Believe me, this is a great cakr to make because of the yeast in the recipe.

the peaches sink, but not to the bottom. they kind of get surrounded with the dough but some stay on top.
