I was inspired by my Mother to make this cake. I used peaches from the orchard on my parent's farm. This cake is very moist (without being wet) and the sweetness comes mainly from the fruit. Calories are saved by using a minimum amount of sugar.

    I left mine too long and my cake wouldn't come out, so I used a spatula to serve cake and flipped it over onto the plate. LOL It still looked beautiful and tasted fabulous!
