My friend over at Southern Lady Cooks enticed me with her Peach Cake recipe. Since I had all the ingredients (there’s not many), I whipped it up Sunday afternoon.
My mom, who’s been rehabbing from her hip surgery, got to enjoy a piece when I stopped by to check on her. I guess I get my love of homemade desserts from her. We collect cookbooks as a hobby and read them like novels!
Now on to the Southern Lady’s recipe…

Peach Cake1 large can sliced peaches, drained and mashed (I used 2 regular cans since that is all I had at the time) You could also use fresh peaches. 2 cups all-purpose flour 2 cups sugar 2 teaspoons baking soda Drain the peaches and empty into a large bowl. I just used my hands to mash them. Add flour, sugar and soda and mix well. Spray a 9 x 13 inch cake pan and pour in batter. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 35 minutes. See recipe below for icing. Icing: 3/4 cup sugar 3/4 regular sized can of evaporated milk 1 stick butter or margarine 1 cup coconut (I used a little more than a cup of coconut) 1 cup nuts (Doris uses pecans I used walnuts) Boil everything but the nuts on top of the stove until thickens, remove from heat, stir in nuts and spread on cooled cake. Enjoy!
Pop on over to her site to thank her for this delicious recipe and if you get a chance, make it this weekend. It’s easy. :)
The Smoked Turkey Salad recipe is coming up next, I promise!
