  • 5 fresh peaches

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 tablespoon baking powder
  • 3/4 cup milk


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 
  2. Peel peaches and slice into 1/4 inch slices. To peel peaches quickly bring a large pot of water to a full boil, add peaches and boil for 1 - 2 minutes. Remove from water with a slotted spoon into strainer and run cold water over them. Remove skin with paring knife. 
  3. Toss sliced peaches with cinnamon and 1/4 cup of sugar and place in cake pan. Set aside. 
  4. Cream butter, 1 cup of sugar and salt in the bowl of a stand mixer. Blend in egg and vanilla until light & fluffy. 
  5. Place flour and baking powder in a small bowl. Stir with a fork and set aside. 
  6. On low speed blend in 1/3 of the flour mixture followed by half of the milk. Continue alternating the flour mixture and milk until everything is used. 
  7. Spread batter on top of peaches and bake for 35 - 45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
