This is a very good peach "cake:". I had a little trouble getting the cake layer to cover the peaches but it all turned out great in the end.

Wow! This "cake" is wonderful! It's a delightful combination of a cobbler and a cake. I love the cake layer over the peach filling, and finished off with the crunchy & tasty topping! I did find the peach filling to be a bit tart, but that was probably the peaches not being overly sweet. I didn't mind, though, because I enjoyed the sweet/tart combination of filling and cake. I served this with a small scoop of Talenti No. 9 Caribbean Coconut Gelato. OMG - so good!!!
