I didn't follow the recipe, but started with it.
I heated some dried cranberries in some orange liqueur then added a large can of peaches, drained and coarsely diced.
In a bowl I sifted together
- 2 1/2 Cup white whole wheat flour
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp baking soda
In the mixer I creamed together:
- 1 cube butter (1/2 cup)
- 1 cup toasted sugar
- 1 large egg
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
I set at the ready:
- 1 cup whole milk (recipe called for buttermilk)
Added and mixed until combined 1/3 of the dry mix and 1/3 cup of the milk in turns.
Then folded in the Peach mixture just until mixed in.
Poured this into buttered 9x13 casserole dish.
Topped with mixture of:
- 2 tbs butter
- 1/2 cup toasted sugar
- 1 Tbs sweet spice mixture (in this case cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, grains of paradise, cubebs)
- 1 drop sweet orange essential oil
Bake at 250 for 35 mins, then cool 20 mins on wire rack.
Ended up with a fragrant, moist cake.
