"Peaches and almonds are such a natural pairing! This is lovely with a dollop of lightly sweetened whipped cream flavoured with a wee bit of almond extract. I use my regular cottage cake and then play around with different toppings. This is one that I came up with for a friends birthday. "

Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



PEACHY! This is a delightful combination of flavors. The cake is very light and moist. The peach slices were thick so I did slice them in half. By slicing the peaches, I only needed half the can of peaches. Next time I make this I will purchase the smaller can of peaches. The kid in me had to put on a couple of maraschino cherries just for fun. Thanks for the recipe. Made for Billboard Tag 2012.
