Easy Fruit Recipes
Fresh, Frozen or Canned, Fruit makes delicious desserts!
There are some fruit recipes that bring back childhood memories, recent summer picnics or past Sunday dinners. This recipe brings back memories of when my parents were picking peaches up in Washington state.
Mom would bake this cake on Sunday night and we would have it for breakfast during the week with ice cold milk. We would get up about 3:00 am and be out in the orchard, usually just before dawn. There wasn't much time for mom to cook breakfast! And thank goodness because bacon and eggs can't hold a candle to this scrumptious treat!
