I cannot believe this received ANY good ratings! I was searching for my German mom's recipe and this seemed the closest so I was very eager to undertake it this morning & enjoy it later this evening after dinner. What a WASTE of not only ingredients, but my TIME! The batter was TOO STICKY to spread with my fingers(???) so I used a spatula; then there wasn't nearly enough batter! I know for a fact I followed this to a "T", so it wasn't an error. My mom baked the cake first in a type of fluted tart pan with a raised bottom; when she turned it out, she spread drained canned peaches pinwheel style on the top while still a bit warm. The juices soak right in! Then she would spread some type of sweet glaze over the top... while the cake portion was NOT "sweet" (which I prefer), the yummy jell-like topping was, and it was the most delicious cake I ever had. I wish my mom were still around so I could ask her, but in the meantime, I'm still trying to find her recipe! Think I might try this batter again, but double it... then add peaches on top afterward as I described. This also took 45 minutes to cook at 350, and it still isn't evenly cooked. Sad about losing this morning too.
