Life's A Peach

Noticed yesterday that I had way too much fruit in the house.  Couldn't let them go to waste, so had to bake something!!  I had a choice of baking something with blueberries or with peaches.  As I had already baked some blueberry muffins the day before, decided to try my luck with some kind of peach dessert!

Wanted something easy and fast to prepare - found the perfect recipe - easiest-cake-ever!! But decided to make it with peaches like this!  It is soooo easy - perfect for a last minute dessert and you can make it with any fruit!! Can't wait to make it again with blueberries or strawberries!

Easiest Cake Ever (my changes in red)

1 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
3/4 cup sugar (used a little less)
2 eggs
1/2 cup canola oil
1 tsp vanilla
1 peach, thinly sliced (used three ripe peaches)
1 tablespoon raw sugar

Preheat oven to 350F. In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder. Add in the sugar, eggs, vanilla and oil and mix to combine. Butter and flour an 8 or 9 inch cake pan and add in batter. Batter will be quite thick, so use a spoon to smooth out the top. Place peach slices on top of the batter, pressing them into the batter. Sprinkle with raw sugar. Bake for 50 minutes until a cake tester inserted comes out clean.

Wow! My mouth is literally watering, just looking at these! Thank you, Celine, for your kind words about Bonnie. It really is a comfort to know that others are going to miss her as well, and know what an awesome dog she was.
