Peach Pie

Recipe courtesy of: Weezie M.

Actually, it's more of a cake than a pie, but whatever you call it, it's awesome. This cake is incredible- refreshing, sweet, moist, a perfect mix of sugar & fruit. The soft cake has fresh sliced peaches mixed in, and cinnamon sugar topping. It tastes wonderful with a little peach ice cream... ideally from a place called Four Seas in Cape Cod :-)

  • ½ cup butter
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon lemon rind
  • 2 eggs
  • 7/8 cup (or 1 cup minus 2 Tablespoons) sifted flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups of peaches (fresh sliced and peeled, or canned)

  1. Cream the butter and gradually add 1/c cup sugar and lemon.
  2. Beat until light & fluffy.
  3. Add eggs one at a time.
  4. In a separate bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, and salt.
  5. Add the sifted flour mix ¼ cup at a time, and beat after each addition.
  6. Pour ½ the batter into a greased 8 inch square pan.
  7. Cover with peaches and then top with the remaining batter.
  8. For a topping, combine 1/3 cup sugar and ½ teaspoon cinnamon and sprinkle over the cake.
  9. Bake for 45 minutes at 350°.
