Peach Cake

Yields Approximately 24 slices

For the Cake

Toss the diced peaches with the 1 tbs. dark brown sugar, 1 tbs. maple syrup, and 1 tsp. vanilla extract. Set aside.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Cream the butter and sugar together. Scrape the bowl, then add the eggs and beat to combine.

In a bowl, sift together the baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and flour. Add the flour and milk in two alternating additions, scraping the bowl after each addition. Add the peaches and the liquid from the peaches and mix until just combined.

Pour the batter into a greased 9×13 baking dish and bake for 25-30 minutes until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. Co completely before glazing.

For the Glaze

In a saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Continue cooking the butter, allowing it to start browning. The butter will start to foam and smell nutty. Stir frequently, as the butter can easily burn. Add the milk, the remove from heat. Stir in the vanilla extract and maple syrup. Stir in the powdered sugar gradually to make a thick glaze. Pour over the cooled cake.
