Summer Peach Cake

Peaches are in season!! YAY!! I love to use peaches in my baking.  This is a new recipe I came across and tried this afternoon.


1/2 c sugar, divided
2 c flour
1 tsp baking powder
dash of salt
3/4 c butter
1 egg
2 Tbsp white rum or water
3-4 peaches skinned and sliced
3 Tbsp butter
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/3 peach preserves
1 Tbsp hot water

In a bowl mix the flour, 1/4 c sugar, salt and baking powder.  Add egg and rum or water and mix into a ball.  Press into a 9x13 baking pan.  PLace sliced peaches on top of dough.  In a small sauce pan, melt the butter and add the cinnamon and nutmeg along with the 1/4 remaining sugar.  Stir and pour over the peaches.  Bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes.  Mix the preserves with the hot water and brush over the top of the finished cake.  Easy! Enjoy~
