Peaches Luscious

2 egg yolks
1/4 cup sugar
3 tablespoons margarine
1 cup sifted flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 cup milk
16 ounces peaches, drained
2/3 cup sugar
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 egg whites, beaten stiff
1/4 cup powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350F. Blend the egg yolks, sugar and margarine in a large mixing bowl. In a small mixing bowl, sift together flour and baking powder. Add to egg mixture alternately with milk. Arrange drained peaches in a greased 9 inch baking pan and sprinkle with the remaining sugar and lemon juice. Pour cake batter over fruit. Bake until cake is firm in center, about 30 minutes. Remove from oven and cover with a meringue made by beating the powdered sugar into the beaten egg whites. Turn oven temperature down to 325F. Replace cake in oven and brown for about 15 minutes. Serve warm, plain or with whipped cream.

Serves 6.
