    I've made this twice now and it always turns out perfectly. I used two fresh peaches and sprinkled some frozen blueberries in...the colors looked so pretty together! I also sprinked some streusel on top...1TBS butter, 2 TBS Flour and 1 TBS sugar. Work together by hand, make more as desired...makes a perfect crispy topping. Thanks for the great recipe!  -  04 Aug 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    BEST PEACH CAKE EVER!! Upon eating this, my Dad said;"You NEED to bake another one. Right now, like 'I'll-go-to-the-store-and-buy-you-more-peaches' right now!" I made this with fresh peaches and added a crumb topping. My aunt's crumb topping recipe: 3/4 cup of white sugar 3/4 cup of white flour 1/2 cup butter or margarine Crumble this up and sprinkle on top. I had to cook the cake a little longer, till the topping was browned. Hope you enjoy this as much as I did!!  -  05 Jul 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    Wonderful recipe, especially with fresh, ripe peaches. Would use almond flavoring instead of vanilla next time and sprinkle nutmeg as well as cinnamon on top. A rustic looking dessert rather then elegant. Small quibble, if you use fresh peaches, HOW MUCH??? I ended up doing two peach spiral layers. Also, my sides came up slightly higher then the peaches so I filled in with whip cream and sprinkled with toasted almonds. Was a huge hit, this is a keeper.  -  15 Aug 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
