old time recipe; oldie but goodie..
When I was growing up in the 1940s we didn't have a lot of money. We had a hugh garden, & we canned any extra vegetables for winter. We also gathered apples form our orchard & butternuts. ( Which you don't see much anymore) Mom always bought a couple of bushels of peaches in the fall which we canned but first we had sliced peaches served on this wonderful cake
