I made a slightly modified version of this recipe. I tasted the batter and felt that it was missing something, so I added a half teaspoon of vanilla, which definitely upped the flavor level. In addition, rather than mashing the peaches, I chopped them so that there would still be whole chunks. I tasted the full batter before putting the cake in the oven (after the modifications), and the flavor was AMAZING!

The finished cake, however, was not as good as I expected from the batter. The inside was pretty good, but the top of the cake became overly crunchy, and the cake had a little bit of a bread taste to it. Nonetheless, some of that may have been due to my own mistakes. I believe I may have over-mixed the batter, and I also may have put the cake in the oven for a little too long. Because the batter was so good, I'm hoping to give this cake another try.
