July Feast – Fresh Peach Cake

There’s a world of difference in the taste of fresh and commercially canned peaches.  In the South, we have access to fresh peaches coming from Georgia, South Carolina, and North Carolina.

This cake recipe is reminiscent of a light coffee cake, with the delicious taste of fresh peaches.
