August is national peach month, so we’ve perfected a summertime favorite. We’ve waited patiently for months and now peaches are in-season. They’re at their peak of sweetness with unbelievable sun-ripened flavor. Plus, at this stage, they contain their highest levels of natural nutrients. This classic and delicious recipe is a sweet blend of baked summer fruit and luscious buttery cake. It smells heavenly in the oven and tastes even better with a dollop of cold vanilla ice cream. This is always a big hit at potlucks, picnics and family reunions.

8-10 fresh peaches – peeled, pitted and sliced into thin wedges
¼ cup white sugar
