  • 2 Eggs
  • 3/4 c Granulated sugar

Generously butter a 12 inch springform pan. Arrange 4 of the sliced
peaches in a circular pattern in the pan and set aside.

Sift flour and baking soda. Set aside.

Combine molasses and water. Set aside.

Combine eggs and sugar in a mixing bowl and beat for 5 to 10 minutes until

Add the melted butter gradually while still beating.

Alternately add the flour and molasses mixtures, mixing just until smooth.
Pour batter over peaches in the springform pan.

tablespoons of packed brown sugar until soft but not mushy, about 6 to 8
minutes. Remove and let cool.

Invert cake onto serving platter so peaches are on top. Arrange the cooled
peach slices around the top of the cake.

Melt the preserves in the top of a double-boiler and generously brush over
the sliced peaches.
