This was very easy to make and turned out great. It was very moist and I loved the glazed top it formed. Thanks for posting.

This is a very moist and tasty recipe. We loved it. I made exactly as directed...well almost exactly as directed. I only had a 15 ounce can of sliced peaches, so I used that with a can of fruit coctail and it worked fine. This makes a great recipe for those hot weather get togethers.
