Ginger Peach Cake :)

Hmmmm it sure looked good coming out of the oven!

OOPS, a bit messy to get onto the plate - brown sugar juice everywhere! ;)

Does this look delicious or WHAT!!! It smells great too - I can smell the ginger and the peaches, mmmmmmmmmm.

Chris gave this a 9/10 - it didn't get a 10/10 because I served it hot right out of the oven, so it was pretty hot, lol. Nick pronounced it scrum-diddly-icious - consider the comments as high praise from teenagers :)

The recipe came from the Mama's Fixins blog @ - I made a few changes so I could make it with what I had on hand. I used a 28 oz. (796 ml.) can of sliced peaches, drained, instead of the pear. I creamed the butter, sugar, lemon extract and eggs together, but then I just dumped in the rest of the ingredients and beat it with the beater until it was well mixed ;) I didn't have a 10" round pan, so I used a 10" spring form pan - that worked very well! My version was a bit juicer than hers to unmold (because of the juice on the pears, I'm sure), but I'll do it exactly the same way next time as well :)

THANK YOU Tracy @ Mama's Fixins, for this wonderful recipe!! Simple enough to make for an after school snack, but also nice enough to serve to company - I'll try a pear version as well, but the peaches sure did work well!


  1. Oh wow, Sandra! That looks YUMMY!! Did ya save a slice for me?? :)

  2. I still don't know how good it tastes - I've managed to resist the urge so far, but the longer the leftovers are in my kitchen, the more likely I am to cheat! So please help yourselves to a BIG piece, ladies! ;)
