Anything with fresh peaches will get my attention every time. As much as I like our Florida Citrus, I think there's nothing like a fresh GA peach.

This recipe sounds wonderful Vi, and I'm seeing a lot of peaches from somewhere in the local markets now. I don't think they are from GA, but I'll get some anyway just to have this cake which was published the year I was born. 1935. :-)

Thank you for sharing,
