OK, maybe I wanted to just make sure I had it for myself, an easy cake recipe I can make on a day I’m allowing myself a little ah……  ah……..   “flexibility” in my diet.  It looks pretty good actually, in taste AND in health.  Well, mostly.  Enough.  What I meant is that it looks MORE than enough in taste and enough in health.

Come to think of it, it looks REALLY tasty and really healthy too!  How can one lose when it includes both peaches and pineapple!  A healthy cake recipe!  Just make sure you limit yourself to one piece if you are trying to enjoy good food and watch your weight at the same time.  No eating the entire cake at one sitting, even if you’re tempted!  Ya hear?  🙂

Did I say how much I like this easy cake recipe?  Oh yes, I think I did!  OK, I have not tried it yet.  Like I mentioned above, when I saw this peach cake recipe, I just knew I had to keep it somehow so I COULD try it.

I already know I’m going to use a clear, glass baking dish though.  I LOVE using clear baking dishes when a recipe has such pretty, natural ingredients or when there is fruit involved.*

*Note that when you use glass bakeware, most recipes suggest you bake your food items at 25 degrees lower than otherwise suggested.  Check at the same time, but be prepared to adjust time a little then if necessary.

I’ll let you know what I think when I make it, or any one of you can let us know if you make a cake first!  It sure does look good though.
