Sherri's Peach Long Cake

My dear friend and neighbor, Sherri, came over last week to show me this fabulous Peach Long Cake that she had made to take to a party for her grandaughter. It looked and smelled devine and I just have to share this amazing recipe with you all!
.......Made with fresh, ripe and oh-so-sweet California grown peaches.....
.......with a gooey cake like topping that was hot and bubbling - fresh out of the oven.
The recipe is from one of her favorite recipe books (she only has a zillion)
titled From Amish & Mennonite Kitchens.




Now you must note that my plate is empty........

yes......
sad face....

..as I said she made it for a party. Sherri is always thinking of her husband, Dennis, and she had made him his own individual sugar free cobbler, that of which I got a heaping and delightful piece of!

Thank you, Sherri!


Peach Long Cake

4 cups sliced peaches
1/2 cup sugar


DOUGH
2 cups flour
4 tsp baking powder
6 TBLSP sugar
