If you look across the desserts that my family makes, we’re not so into “pretty” desserts.
I see people who make a plain cake, then spend hours decorating, and sometimes I think I want to do a cake like that.
But then I change my mind.
If I’m gonna spend extra time on a recipe, I’m want that time to go toward flavour rather than looks.
Occasionally, I do make an effort at presentation.
But some of my best recipes, those that I like best, and that other people like best, are not wildly attractive.
I make pecan pie, and pudding cake, and they are just brown and a little dull looking. But both are requested and devoured.
Another that I often do, especially for a summer birthday cake (such as for my birthday, which is today…) is a simple peach cake.
It’s super easy, as well as being a very summery flavour. It’s your choice if you tell people how simple it is, or let them think you put a lot more effort in than you did.
So, without further ado, here is the recipe:
- 1-Box of yellow cake mix
- 2-15 oz cans sliced peaches
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- sugar/cinnamon mix for topping
`Prepare cake mix as directed. Add peaches (include juice from one can). Mix cinnamon.
Sprinkle cinnamon and sugar on top of cake.
Bake at 350 for 30-40 minutes.
