Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

    Advertisement
  • Place 1 tablespoon of the butter or margarine in a 9 inch round cake pan and place in oven to melt. Once the butter or margarine has melted remove the pan from the oven and stir the brown sugar into the melted butter or margarine. Spread to coat the bottom of the pan evenly. Arrange the peach slices in the pan and set aside.

  • Separate the eggs. In a small bowl, beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form. Set aside.

  • Cream the remaining 8 tablespoons of the butter or margarine with the white sugar. Beat in the egg yolks, then the milk and the vanilla extract.

  • Stir the graham cracker crumbs, baking powder, and salt together. Beat the graham cracker mixture into the egg yolk mixture. Gently fold the beaten egg whites into the batter. Pour the batter into the prepared pan, over the top of the peaches.

  • Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 40 minutes. Remove cake from oven and immediately invert the cake upside down onto a large plate. Because this cake is so moist, it should be stored in the refrigerator. Makes about 8 servings.

I definitely enjoyed the taste of this cake but I cut down the sugar to 1/2 cup which was enough for me. If I made it again I would add less milk because I think the batter was too runny. That might also help the peaches brown a little. Read More

I used 1/2 package of vanilla instant pudding mix and 1 small package of Kellogg's Frosted Flakes (crumbled) instead of the 3/4 cup sugar to make the cake more firm and not-as-sweet. The result is pretty good. Worth a try. -. Read More

I was excited to make this because it was rated so well. I took it to a get together of friends. Thankfully they were all FRIENDS because this really wasn't that great. The texture was odd and a little runny and it was TOO sweet. I was not impressed. Read More

Very nice. I cut down the white sugar a bit and added abt /4 cup more graham crackers. This is not really a torte to me although it's not really a cake in my opinion either. With more peaches it would end up more like a cobbler which might be a cool idea for next time. This is plenty sweet even without the full amount of sugar and it's easy and fun to make. The topping sort of absorbed into the peaches so I might not do that again--I might do a cinnamon sugar layer instead. Thanks for the recipe! Read More
