Pour the milk mix over the flour mix. Mix with a fork just until it becomes wet. Grease a 9″ spring form pan and spread the batter on the bottom of the pan. Arrange the peach slices on top. Bake in the oven for 15 min.

Custard Cream

2 t flour
1/2 c sugar
1 egg
1 t vanilla
pinch salt

In a small mixing bowl, combine 1/4 c cream with flour and whisk together to get rid of big lumps.

Continue to bake for 35 – 40 min. When the cake top is puffed, and the edges are deep golden and starting to separate from the pan, the cake is done. Cool in the pan for 15 min, then remove it from the pan and let it cool completely.
