Ina’s Fresh Peach Cake

This is an easy to prepare rustic-style peach cake by the Barefoot Contessa.

The cinnamon and sugar mixture caramelizes leaving the bottom and sides sweet and crunchy.  The fragrant peaches leave the inside moist, while the pecans add a bit of crunch.   For serving, there is nothing better than a warm slice with a little bit of cream poured over the top.  Yummm.
