Recipe Roundup: You're A Peach!

Recipe Roundup @ Multi-Tasking Moms Mmmm...peaches! They're deliciously sweet and juicy, and readily available this time of year. At our house, we fill our fruit bowl with them and eat them as a healthy snack all week long. Because my family enjoys them so much, I'm always looking for new ways to use them in sweet and savory recipes.

One of my favorites is Clara's Peach Cake. This easy-to-prepare recipe uses ingredients that are already in your pantry; all you need to add are some fresh, ripe peaches! This cake is great as a breakfast or brunch dish, or served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream as the perfect ending to a savory meal. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!


Clara's Peach Cake

Crust:

2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons sugar
6 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup milk

Combine dry ingredients in medium mixing bowl. Cut in butter. Add milk and pat into ungreased 9" x 13" pan.

Peel, pit, and slice 7 peaches. Layer peaches on top of crust, and sprinkle with 1/2 cup sugar.

Topping:

1 cup flour
3/4 cup sugar
dash salt
1/2 cup butter

Crumble mixture together with hands. Place on top of fruit.

Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for approximately 50 minutes, or until top just begins to turn golden brown. Enjoy!
