This is not too sweet a cake and would go lovely along side a cup of tea. "When Portuguese soldiers conquered South America from the Aztecs and Inca in the 1500's AD, they brought peaches with them, and people began to grow peaches in South America. In the 1600's, Spanish settlers also brought peaches to Florida, where the Cherokee and Iroquois soon learned to grow them. Cherokee and Iroquois traders sold peach seeds further west, and peach seeds gradually crossed North America to meet up with peach trees planted by Spanish settlers in Arizona and California."
