Peach Cake

Peaches are in season here.  There’s an orchard up near Stockton Lake and they come to our farmers’ market and their peaches are so good.  We’ve been buying just enough to eat every Saturday.  We had a few peaches that were getting too ripe so I used them to make a peach cake.

Since I used one of my smaller cake pans, I was able to make some mini-cakes too and sent those to work with Vince.

Chad isn’t a big fan of peaches so when I told him I was making a peach cake, he kinda turned up his nose.  Then he said he’d taste it before making a final decision.  I cut a piece, told him to taste it and if he didn’t like it, that would be my piece.  He tasted it and loved it and cut himself a bigger piece!

Here’s the recipe:

Peach Cake

2 sticks butter
2 cups granulated sugar
4 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
2-3/4 cups all purpose flour (plus 1/4 cup)
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
2 cups peaches, peeled, pitted and chopped

1.  Preheat oven to 350°.  Grease a Bundt or tube pan and dust with granulated sugar.

2.  Cream together butter and sugar til light and fluffy.  Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.  Stir in vanilla.

3.  Sift together the 2-3/4 cups flour, baking powder and salt.  Stir into the creamed mixture.

4.  Coat peaches with 1/4 cup flour.  Stir into the batter but do not beat or over mix.

5.  Pour into pan.  Bake for one hour or until tester comes out clean.  Allow to cool 10 minutes in pan.  Turn onto wire rack to finish cooling.  (Or, we served ours warm with Blue Bell Homemade Vanilla ice cream).

    Sounds delicious! I will definitely have to try this one — if I can get some ripe peaches! I’m also going to try that chicken/yogurt recipe on your Lime Green Kitchen site. Thanks for taking the time to post favorite recipes!

    Perfect timing – I have a basket of peaches on my counter just waiting to be eaten. A peach cake and a peach cobbler should make quick work of the peaches!

    The cake looks and reads delicious!! Aren’t kids (of all ages!) funny with their iikkks and eewwws. Then they taste stuff and it’s suddenly the best thing they’ve ever eaten!

    Judy – I’m just double checking here….do you really dust the cake pan with granulated sugar? I’ve never heard of that…but then I’m not much of a baker. Just wondering. claudia

    It has to be good with 2 sticks of BUTTER in it. Eat your heart out Paula Deen… Gotta love the Butter. Sounds yummy to me. Have to wait until Saturday for Framer’s Market here.

    I canned peach pie filling last night and still have some peaches left. I am trying your peach cake. It sounds wonderful. Thanks for sharing.

    I bet my hubby would love this. Problem is he’d have it all to himself since Felicity and I don’t “do” peach anything.

    Wow – so pretty!
    I have two large sacks of peaches waiting to be “processed”. Some of them will probably go into that cake!! Thanks for sharing.

    Made the peach cake on Friday morning. Friends invited us out to dinner Friday night, so I agreed as long as they would come to our place after for tea and peach cake. It was a hit – we made a real dent in the cake! Thanks for sharing the recipe
