Nothing is better than the taste of a fresh peach and this recipe is a fantastic way to savor the delicious flavor of this fruit.

This recipe comes from my sister at Life and Coconuts.  It was adapted from our  grandmother’s old fashioned strawberry cake recipe made with Jello. The peach flavor is so light and refreshing and is sure to be on your list of summertime favorites.
