Our friends brought this lovely, scrumptious dessert to dinner over the weekend. It was so good, I had her email me the recipe. She noted in the email that this dessert had one first prize in the state's "best dessert" category a few years back! I can sure see why!! Preparation/Cooking time does not include soaking peaches overnight in brandy. Be sure to do this the night prior to making the cake.

Thank you so much for posting this! This is a cake that a co-worker brought around fifteen years ago, and I never got the recipe from her. This is it! I've been looking for it forever. Now I can make it! I love it.
