This should not be called a "cake"! More like peach-covered biscuit. I obviously wasn't thinking when I did this recipe--or I would have added much more sugar.

This recipe needs to be overhauled with sweetener!

I noticed there was no sugar in this batter, so I added 1/4 cup, but this could easily use 1/2-3/4 cup. It really is like a biscuit....but being that it's an Amish recipe, I think it's supposed to be the way it is--heavy, dense and bland.
