Peach Kuchen Country Style

This was one of her all time favourites. I loved it, but found it extremely rich after about the third slice! The image shows more of a peach pie, but Rose made her kuchen in a lamington tin, so it looks like a peach slice. I still have the very same tin in my kitchen, some forty years later. I think of mum every time I use it.
