Such a popular cake from days gone by. I made this one today because my dear old dad asked me to. Plus peaches are now in season and that makes it the right thing to do!
3/4 cups butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 cups sliced peeled fresh peaches
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup milk
1. Melt 1/4 cup butter; pour into an ungreased 9" round baking pan. Sprinkle with brown sugar. Arrange peach slices in single layer over sugar.
2. In a large bowl, cream sugar and remaining butter until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; add to creamed mixture alternately with milk, beating well after each addition.
3. Bake at 350F for 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Serve warm.
