BALTIMORE PEACH CAKE


1 T butter , softened
1 Cup sugar
2 1/2 Cups Flour
3 T baking powder
1 1/2 Cups milk
3/4 cup sugar
2 t cinnamon
5 large peaches, peeled and sliced
2 T butter, melted

With  an electric mixer, blend the first five ingredients. Spread in a greased and floured jelly roll pan. 15 X 10 jelly roll pan
Mix together the 3/4  cup sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle half the mixture lightly over the dough base.
Arrange peach slices in rows on top of cinnamon sugar. Sprinkle with remainder of the cinnamon sugar mixture and drizzle melted butter over all.
Bake for 25-30 minutes in preheated 350 degree oven.
Cool, then slice into small squares.

Cook's Note: If it is not peach season, you can use frozen peaches, just thaw them first. I imagine home canned peaches would be wonderful too!

This is an old recipe that is very popular in Baltimore. We used to get ours at a bakery in Woodlawn, Baltimore County, called " Silber's Bakery". When they closed, the bakery was taken over by the Bauhauf family. They continued on with the traditions from the previous owners and continued to make all the wonderful yummy things that the Silber family was famous for. Years later it was sold again and the picture below is how it was for years. I believe it is for sale again.
