Peach and Pear Cake

It is that time of the year when peaches are everywhere…. we love them but sometimes we don’t eat them quick enough! I’ve baked this cake several times and it always delivers. It is very versatile and could be adapted to use other fruits. I’ve made it with peaches only (6). Hope you like it!
