This a very popular recipe by Paula Deen. I enjoy making this whenever it is peach season and I thought I should share the recipe before the season is over. The cake is sweet, the peaches give a slightly tarty punch and when served hot with vanilla ice cream, it is delicious!
3 cups peeled and sliced peaches
1 and 1/2 cups of sugar
5 tbsp butter
1 cup flour
1 cup milk
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla essence
and vanilla ice cream to serve.
Eissa found this recipe last year and since then we’ve made it quite a few times. It’s easy and makes a good dessert. Pre-heat your oven at 175 C or 350 F.
First, put 1/2 cup of sugar, peaches and 2 tbsp of water in a pan over medium heat. Cook for 10 mins stirring occasionally. As the peaches cook, they will release a lot of juice and your sugar syrup will turn a beautiful purple color. Turn up the heat and dry out the juices a little.
Meanwhile, place your butter in a 3-quart dish and put it in the oven to melt. In a separate bowl, mix flour, milk, baking powder, sugar and vanilla essence. Once the butter has melted, pour in the flour mixture and do not stir.
