As of July 30, 09 I have completly reworked this recipe by replacing the original cake portion. I believe that this is much better

Before tagging this recipe, reading the previous reviews almost made me change my mind, but then I read the recipe several times & it seemed to me it should work! So . . . here I am telling you that it definitely worked for me, & we had a very nice peach cake! Although I did follow the ingredient list right on down, I did stretch out the baking time as long as I could (probably about 45 minutes, actually) & although it started to brown around the edges, it wasn't burned by any means, & it was nicely done, I thought! Most of it went to my son & DIL's place (I cooked a dinner for those busy, busy people), but enough was kept right here for the 2 of us to enjoy! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

Annacia - I really wanted this to work but for some reason the cake never really set - the top was fully baked but the middle (the part touching the peaches) never set and remained moist. Maybe it was because I used some freshly canned peaches and they were too juicy? I baked it for 40 minutes and the top was getting overly done so it must be something with the peaches I used. I'd like to try it again and maybe use fresh peaches instead of canned because the smell was heavenly and I know you have a gem hidden here. Made for the WTTM tag game.
Sorry...this didn't work for me either - it stuck!!! I made 3 and all 3 stuck. I sprayed pans with Pam. Next time I will try using springform pans lined with foil.
