this looks wonderful and sounds easy         and I could make half recipe 

 
Peach Cake is pushing 75,000 shares ! NO EGGS!  Peach cake: 1 large can sliced peaches, drained and mashed (I used 2 regular cans since that is all I had at the time) You could also use fresh peaches. 2 cups all-purpose flour 2 cups sugar 2 teaspoons baking soda Drain the peaches and empty into a large bowl. I just used my hands to mash them. Add flour, sugar and soda and mix well. Spray a 9 x 13 inch cake pan and pour in batter. Bake in a preheated 350F degree oven for 35 minutes. See recipe below for icing.  ICING: 3/4 cup sugar 3/4 regular sized can of evaporated milk 1 stick butter or margarine 1 cup coconut (I used a little more than a cup of coconut) 1 cup nuts  Boil everything but the nuts on top of the stove until thickens, remove from heat, stir in nuts and spread on cooled cake.   **Feel free to send me a FRIEND REQUEST.

Thank you so much for the recipe, Nellie.  It looks delicious and sounds quite easy to make.  I'll have to try this after this heat wave breaks.

This is what I call a "Stupid Simple" recipe.  
Sounds so simple and it looks so good. 
This has been printed and will go into my new note book and onto the shelf of my new "cookbook bookcase" 
Thank you for sharing this.

Thinking about it I bet you could do this with almost any canned fruit.

Thanks Nellie!!!!  I'll make the peach one first; but then I'll used crushed pineapple for the second one.  Ohhhh.....I can taste both of them already!

My attempt at the peach cake's exact recipe is finished ..........  It sure hasn't turned out for me -- but that should not stop anyone else from trying it.   I used a "big" can, 29 oz., of sliced peaches which I drained very carefully in my colander.  I could not crush them with my hands so I used a potato masher.  (Maybe I should have drained the crushed stuff too??)
When the 30 minutes were passed the edges of the pan were browned but the middle needed more baking .... I added 5 and it was still "soft" in the middle -- I turned off the oven but let it set in there 10 more minutes.
While making the icing, it had to boil for 40 minutes to get thick.  When I added the coconut and pecans it turned into a really good icing - just like German Chocolate Cake Icing but taking so long.
I never did frost the cake --- It's much too wet -- soppy wet.  It certainly can't be sliced or anything.
So I put the whole thing in the trash.   The delicious frosting is in the fridge -- I'll find something to do with it.

Please - I hope someone else will try it and do better.

Nancy, I bet that soft cake would have been great with a scoop of vanilla ice cream...

Thanks for experimenting with the recipe for us, Nancy. It's unfortunate it didn't work out, as it sounds so yummy. I may just give it a try when the weather cools down a bit.

Great, Verlee --- I will appreciate that very much.  I think it will be good for all of us.
I've wondered about the size of the can of peaches I used. ....... I used ONE 29 oz can.  Maybe I should have used ONE 15 oz can?  Maybe I should not have crushed/mashed the peaches so much?    I don't know.

Nancy,. I would never trash a product even if it appeared to have failed.  i just couldn't bring myself to toss it.  I'd eat it even if I had to use a spoon.
I will try that recipe when it cools off enugh so I feel it is ok to turn on the oven.

  the large can (29 oz)  was what the recipe called for  nancy
I haven't tried it yet because I've been on sugar overload for about a week
also, I have to get coconut      maybe try jelly bag or cheesecloth for squeezing the peaches

I made the cake this evening.  It was baking while we were eating supper.  I used a 20oz can of crushed pineapple, drained, as I didn't have a big can of peaches.  We had some, warm with a scoop of ice cream for dessert.  I haven't made the icing yet.  It is an intereting cake.  Texture is a little odd probably because of no fat or eggs, but it was good.  I only baked it 35 minutes and it was done.

Thanks, Judy -- I'm so glad to hear this recipe worked.  ... And pineapple sounds good!
Do make the icing -- it's really great.
