An extremely light and easy to make cake that is topped with fresh peach slices. A nice pud after a summer meal.
I've tried lots of fruit-topped cake recipes and this is definitely one of the best. Just the right level of sweetness, moist and flavourful. I did not have fresh peaches so used a can of peach slices in juice, saving the juice and adding it to the mixture instead of milk. Really great and thank you Karen. - 12 Nov 2014
As the first to reveiw, I'm sorry I can't give this more than 3 stars. I followed the directions exactly. The recipe is easy but is lacking in a couple of ways. I think the addition of vanilla or almond extract to the batter and a sprinkling of cinnamon on top would give it a big boost. I used a 10" dark nonstick springform pan and the cake was over-cooked at 30 minutes; I'm glad I checked when I did. Also my peaches were rather small & 4 were plenty. The cornmeal was an "interesting" touch. - 12 Aug 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Nice & Simple. Cake is a bit boring except for the peach on top. Could do with some peach added to the actual batter? Cake rose considerably and cooked within the time specified. Overall, a bit boring and plain, but nice with ice-cream or cream. - 24 Jan 2009 (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
