Feed a cold, starve a fever.  That’s what we learned as kids.  So I’m feeding this cold, whether I can fully taste it, or not.

It’s just a basic yellow cake with fresh peaches mixed in, whipped cream on top, and a half-peach sliced atop that.

Really simple.  Really good.

I even broke down and used a cake mix tonight.  Shocking, I know, but illness does require sacrifice.  I have actually found *one* store-brand cake mix without partially-hydrogenated fats or high fructose corn syrup.  And it’s only the yellow.  All the others have mega-crap in them.  Of course, all of the national brands have ’em and I don’t buy ’em.

One thing to note…  When you add things like fresh fruit chucks to cake batter, they will sink to the bottom unless you coat them with flour before gently stirring in.  99% of the time I don’t bother, but if you want the fruit to be more-or-less evenly disperseed throughout the layer, you should.

Dinner done.  Dessert done.  I’m off to bed.  I need to make an appearance at work tomorrow.
