Peach Cake [moved from DC/Baltimore Board]
Found the "Muhly's " recipe at this site: http://rongoviancuisine.blogspot.com/...
I haven't made it yet, but it sounds like the real thing. I live in OK now(since'86). My family in Balto. will be amazed to find this. Was looking for some recipes for bake sales, and this is something I haven't seen since leaving Md. :)
The peach cake recipe I'm trying to find is the other one: a flat, dense, not-too-sweet cake, layered on top with fresh peaches (not baked with the cake), with a glaze of raspberry jelly or somesuch. I don't believe cinnamon is involved. I bought one last week at Hoehn's (Bank and Conkling Sts., off of Eastern Ave.); it was great. Does anyone have this recipe? Is this the raised-dough cake that BaltimoreJim mentioned?
Bakery versions are made with a raised dough but my family favorite is not. BTW I'm not a baker, I had to call my cousin for the recipe.
1.5 C flour
1 C sugar
1 or 2 t baking powder (the recipe changed over the years to 2 teaspoons)
1/2 C milk
1/2 t vanilla
Mix dry ingredients then add wet ingredients
Spread in a 9 x 13 pan (it will seem thin)
lay sliced peaches on the surface
dot with butter
bake at 350 for 30 to 40 minutes depending on the peaches you use
sprinkle with cinammon and sugar
BTW I have heard wholesale price of peaches is $38 a bushel due to late frost
