I wanted to make a fresh fruit dessert so I decided I would try to put together a peach dessert. This cake is so moist it is almost wet. The icing is also peach and it is to die for. My hubby tasted the icing and said he could just eat a bowl of it and be satisfied. When he tried the cake and icing together he said this was maybe the best cake I have made. Thank you sweetie you are my biggest fan. lol

We agree with Becky's husband, this peach cake is pretty amazing. We could eat the entire bowl of frosting too. The cake itself is moist with a fresh, light peach flavor. Throughout the cake, there are delightful little bits of fresh peaches. The homemade frosting is sweet and has an excellent peach flavor. This semi-homemade cake is a delicious summer dessert.
