Peachy Cake

Just happened upon this recipe and I had some peaches that I bought recently and figured why not?

Peachy Cake (adapted from Food 52)

3 ripe peaches
3/4 t freshly ground nutmeg
1 t cinnamon
1 c sugar
6 T butter
1 egg
1/2 c buttermilk
1 t vanilla
1/4 t almond extract
1 c flour
1/2 c almond meal (ground almonds)
1 t baking powder
1/4 t baking soda
1/2 t salt
3T Turbinado Sugar (Raw sugar)

Grease and flour a 9" round pan. Set aside.  Cut peaches into bite-sized pieces. Add cinnamon, nutmeg, and 2 T of the sugar.  Set aside. Combine flours, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.

Cream butter and sugar together in mixer.  Add the egg, buttermilk, vanilla, and almond extract. Mix until combined. Add flour mixture and mix until just combined. Pour into pan.  Spoon peaches over the batter, lightly pressing them into the batter. Sprinkle Turbinado sugar over peaches.

Bake at 350 for 10 minutes; then reduce oven to 325 and bake another 45 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Cool on rack for 10 minutes and then remove from pan.

There's no need to peel the peaches. I had thought about doing that but was a bit lazy and didn't. You couldn't tell. This cake came together quite quickly. A little whipped cream would go quite nicely with this or even a nice scoop of vanilla ice cream.  I opted out on that since it seems strangely that my clothes have been shrinking lately in the wash??
