i bake!

Like I said the other day, I was looking forward to my peaches ripening right up so I could make a peach cake. So I figured since I am an amateur blogger and amateur baker I should probably document this rare event. I normally (yeah I said normally because this is one of my favorite things so I have made it before a time or two) make this with apples. And in that case I call it apple cake. That's the dessert I requested as a child every year on my birthday. Apple. Cake. So I had these peaches and my mom said that apple cake can be made with not just apples but also peaches. And if you're really feeling frisky even blueberries. I can't even call that last paragraph a long story short.

Aunt Carrie was an aunt. I will probably disgrace myself with not knowing the official relation (I am a wanna-be ancestry aficionado.) I'll go with a relation of my mother's on the paternal side. Yes? She won't even answer me on this blog she'll probably just text me the answer. Anti-commenter.

The recipe:
Apple/Blueberry/Peach Cake

1 1/2 c flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 c sugar
2 eggs plus 1 c milk
2 tbsp melted butter
1 tsp vanilla
Sugar/cinnamon/melted butter to taste

Bake at 375 for 40-45 min.

The ingredients:
You sift the dry ingredients together. Here is me playing with my new camera to show you said sifted ingredients:
I realize "2 eggs plus 1 c milk" can be a bit confusing. Two eggs go into a measuring cup. Then add milk on top of that till you hit 1 cup. Yup. Just like that.
Wisk. Then add the 2 tbsp of melted butter and the vanilla. I love vanilla. I always like to throw some extra in there because I like to live dangerously.
Then you mix the wet ingredients in with the dry. This is where you enlist your three year old helper because stirring is really hard work. 
Then you pour it into your typical greased and floured 9x13 pan.
Peaches. I used about 5 but sometimes those peaches are quite large. Or small. However you like them.You peel them. You slice them. Line them up real nice on top of the poured dough.
Throw some melted butter on top. I used probably 3 tablespoons.... Yes mom I said three.
I make my own cinnamon sugar. Boo-ya! Then you throw that all over the top of it all. As little or as much as you'd like. If I were to make a recommendation I would say MORE. Always MORE.
Throw that in the oven at 375 degrees for 40-45 minutes. And done!
I'll be bringing this to my sister-in-law's house today. Moving day! Deserves a peach cake!!
