Every time I make a cake like this I think about my Dad. Much like my husband, he wasn’t a man who cared for frosting on cakes. But a cake like this?  He would have put a big slice of this in a bowl and put either a little milk or a scoop of ice cream on it to eat it.  It puts a smile on my face just thinking about it.

This is an easy peach cake recipe made with slices of fresh peaches and a very simple cake batter. If you love peaches, you’ll love this small cake.

How To Easily Take The Skins Off Of Fresh Peaches

You can make this small peach cake with peaches that either have the skins on them or off, whatever your preference is. To easily remove the skins from fresh peaches place water in a medium size saucepan and bring it up to a boil then turn the heat off.

Drop the fresh whole peaches into the hot water using a large spoon, let the peach roll around in the water for about a minute or two. Remove the peach from the water with a slotted spoon into cold ice water to stop the peach from cooking.

When I remove the skin from peaches this way I only drop one or two peaches at a time into the hot water in the pan. You can add as many as you can comfortably fit into the saucepan if you like. After the peaches are cool enough for you to handle them, just push on the skin of the peach with your fingers and the skin with come right off.
