Thanks for all the wonderful support during this difficult week. What a great community this is.
I'm coping by keeping busy in my kitchen. I finally made it out to find some peaches and got a little carried away...as I tend to do....I processed 30 lbs of peaches, made jam, peach pie and peach sauce...all in one day! Today I made peach crumb cake........Cooking is coping....I just can't eat it all or I'll be waddling around my kitchen!
Here's an old recipe for you if you have peaches around.
Peach Crumble Cake
*blanch and peel and slice enough peaches for 3-4 cups
In your food processor or by hand, combine :
2 cups flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 cup brown sugar
3/4 cups butter
-remove 3/4 cup of crumbs and set aside for topping
-add 1 tsp baking soda to remaining crumbs
-then add 1 beaten egg and 1 cup of milk..soured is good
-pour batter into greased 9x12 pan
-cover batter with peaches
-top with reserved crumb mixture
bake at 375 for 30-35 min.
Enjoy with some icecream!
