“Come clean with a child heart
Laugh as peaches in the summer wind
Let rain on a house roof be a song
Let the writing on your face
be a smell of apple orchards on late June.”
Carl Sandburg, Honey and Salt
While you can still get peaches, run and make this cake! Made in a skillet, the peach slices are set in a quick rich caramel. The cake layer is spooned on top of the peaches. With added sour cream in the batter, it is super moist, fluffy and not too sweet: a lovely counter point to the decadent, oozing caramelized peaches. I spiked mine with some Amaretto liqueur. Similar to a tarte tatin, it is super easy to make.
I adapted the recipe from one of my favorite bloggers, Mollie at Frugal Haus Frau. You can find the original recipe here.
