Peach Cake

  Here is another recipe featuring,you guessed it, more peaches!If you are a fan of coffee cake,this is a cake for you.  It has fresh peaches and subtle hints of sour cream.The top crust is crispy and delicious.It comes from Ina Garten,and is a great ending for any  summer meal.I like to slice the peaches on the thin side so I do not have huge chcunks of fruit to bite into. Feel free to add extra peaches if you would like some added sweetness,just make sure they are ripe!

1/2 c. sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
   Mix both imgredients together,and set aside until ready to use.

1 stick of butter,softened
1 c. sugar
2 eggs
1 c. sour cream
1 tsp. vanilla
2 c. flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
3 large peaches,peeled,pitted,and sliced

   In the bowl of your mixer,blend together the butter and sugar.Add the eggs and vanilla.Add the baking powder,baking soda,and salt.Gradually add the flour,mixing only until combined.Do not overmix.
   Butter a square 9 inch baking pan.Spread half of the mixture into the pan.Layer the peaches on top of the mixture,and sprinkle with half of the cinnamon-sugar mixture.Top with the remaining batter,spreading it out as well as you can.Top with the remaining cinnamon-sugar mixture.
   Bake at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes.Serve warm,if desired,with a scoop of ice-cream,a dollop of whipped cream,or all on its own. Enjoy!
