Peach Thyme Cake 1

I got some gorgeous Peaches from TraderJoes the other day

And was looking to use them in some way

Came across this recipe that used Peach with Thyme in a cake

I knew exactly what I was going to make :)

Then began the measuring, the mixing and the baking

and Boy, was it outstanding!!

So moist and I’m sure it was the magic of the buttermilk

The earthy woodsy flavor of Thyme,

the sweet juicy peaches

In a perfect harmony of sweet and earthy

They pair beautifully
