Very good and it's also very moist. I question the need for lining the bottom of the pan with parchment paper since you aren't turning the cake out of the pan and it just seemed to create a problem when cutting and serving. Next time I will try just greasing the sides and bottom of the pan.

Awesome peach cake, a little decadent with both a cinnamon/brown sugar topping and a glaze, but so good that everyone went back for seconds. I was lazy and just cleaned and diced the peaches without peeling them and that seemed to work fine. Thanks for the lovely recipe, Boyz 5, definitely a make again!
