Just Peaches

My great Grandmother used to make a peach cake for her bakery that was typical of her Bavarian roots. In Passau and Vienna this cake is found in almost any bakery and it is relatively simple to make. It's not very sweet and more like a biscuit than a cake, but oh so wonderful.


  1. Preheat oven to 375

  2. Grease a pan (Square, tart, round cake) I usually use a tart pan for company or a brownie pan for just because

  3. Line the pan with peaches or plums - pitted but only peeled if you want to

  4. Sprinkle fruit with sugar, raw sugar, maple sugar, or maple syrup

  5. add small balls of marzipan (optional)

  6. In a bowl -mix 2 cups flour, 2 tsp of baking powder, 1/2 tsp of baking soda (or use two cups of self rising flour)

  7. stir in sweetener of choice and to sweetness of choice (I use 2 tbs of maple sugar or raw sugar)

  8. mix in 2 eggs beaten and 1 cup of milk, milk alternative, juice, applesauce and 2 tbsp oil

  9. pour batter which is not into pan over the fruit and bake at 375 until golden brown and tests done. Sprinkle with sugar, maple sugar or grated marzipan.

Simple Peach Pie

  1. Preheat oven to 425

  2. mix 1-2 cups of almond flour with 1/2 cup raw sugar or maple sugar and 2 tbsp of oil and press into pan (If you grind your own nuts into flour you will not need the oil)

  3. peel and cut 6-10 peaches and sprinkle with some sugar (too taste) and cinnamon or nutmeg (to taste)

  4. fill pan with fruit and dot with marzipan balls

  5. Top with crumble topping (2/3 cup of flour/nut flour mix, 1/3 cup butter or margarine, spice, 2 tbs sugar or maple sugar)

  6. bake until fruit is bubbling and topping is brown - if the top starts browning too fast, tent with foil. (about 45 min)
