My Grandmother’s Easter Peach Cake Recipe

Cake Recipe with peaches

Growing up my mom would always make my grandmother’s Easter peach cake, an old Czech recipe that was always a hit with our family. This year is a little different and since we are celebrating Easter with just our immediate family, I thought it was the perfect time to bake my grandmother’s famous recipe.

The cake itself is a simple one, but what makes it unique is the sliced peaches and crystallized sugar that sits on top. It’s perfectly plain just the way I like it with hints of sweetness.

I hope this cake will inspire a new tradition in your family or at the very least make this strange time a little more special.
