Wow is it Hot down here! It's been in the 90's and we need rain.
  The snowbirds have gone north for the summer so it's pretty quiet where I live.
 Our friend and neighbor Jeanie left the end of May but before she left she made this wonderful peach cake that she shared with us.
 My husband enjoyed it so much he asked for more! I told him you can't ask for more when someone brings you something and he said" watch me" Ha! Ha! He LOVED this cake.
 Jeanie was a real trooper and brought him the rest of the cake and also brought me the recipe (Thank You Jeanie)  So here is the recipe for this Perfect Peach Cake I hope you all enjoy it as much as we did ( even though I didn't get much of it )

2/3 cup butter or margarine,softened
1-1/2 cups packed brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
2 Cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
