3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar

3 large eggs

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

1/4 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp salt

4 large peaches, pitted, peeled and thinly sliced

1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

1/3 cup finely chopped almonds

Butter a 10-inch cast-iron skillet (or baking dish of the same capacity, about 8 cups). In the bowl of a mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream butter and 3/4 cup sugar until pale and fluffy. Scrape down sides of bowl.

Add one egg at a time, incorporating each before adding the next. Beat in vanilla.

In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt. With mixer on low speed, add flour mixture to butter mixture, a fourth at a time, until incorporated. Gently fold in peaches.

Spread batter in the buttered skillet. In a small bowl, combine 2 tbs sugar, cinnamon, and almonds. Sprinkle mixture over top of batter. Bake in a 350F oven until a cake tester inserted in center comes out clean and topping is golden, 45 to 50 minutes. Set aside to cool for 20 minutes before serving.
