- Beat butter and sugar on medium-high speed for 3-5 minutes in an electric mixer. Adjust mixer on low speed and add vanilla, sour cream, eggs simultaneously.
- Take another bowl. Sift all the dry ingredients and then mix them. Then, combine all dry ingredients in the first bowl and keep mixing until everything spreads evenly. Lastly, add cinnamon and remaining sugar.
- Evenly spread half of the batter on the pan. Top ½ of the peaches and pecans, then dust some caster sugar.
