Peach Cake

I first tasted this cake about 15 years ago when a dear aunt brought it to a family reunion. I knew I had to have the recipe...and I was thrilled to discover how easy it is to make.—Donna Britsch, Tega Cay, South Carolina

    I baked the cake 45 minutes in a greased and floured 13x9x2" baking pan and sprinkled a Tbsp. of cinnamon-sugar mixture over sour cream/peach mixture! This cake was a hit at one of the Friday potlucks I'd attended and one of the residents asked for the recipe!

    This was awesome, I made real whipped cream and used it in place of the whipped topping. There were no leftovers!

    I've been making this cake since 1998, everyone loves it. When I'm in a hurry, I skip the whipped cream and some of the family like it better this way. Whenever I take this cake to a potluck, I'm always asked for the recipe. I have made it as written but usually I use 1 cup sour cream/1 cup cottage cheese, I chop all the peaches and add them to the cream mixture (don't save any for garnish).

    I love this dessert. I recommend using a butter flavor yellow cake mix for the crust.

    I too would not call this a cake. The crust is more like a pie crust(or buttery shortbread). However,my family LOVED it and wants it again!!

    I would not call this a "Cake". The bottom becomes more crispy and dry and the filling is more custard like. It was not something my family enjoyed. I will not be making this again.

    I first discovered this easy cake in Quick Cooking 1998. It looked so easy, so I tried it. It was a big hit at the family reunion and at home! This is a fabulous recipe and my kids love to help make it!!
