This was awesome. I love any kind of peach or pineapple desser. This reminded me of upside down cake. I cheated and used frozen peaches and just sliced them if they looked kinda thick. It was great hot and DH had his with ice cream. I did mine alone, I think this was sweet enough for me without the added ice cream.
