Fresh Peach Cake – Recipe!

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

It’s still officially summer and I’m not giving up on the luscious stone fruit quite yet.  This Fresh Peach Cake is a single layer dessert that’s super easy to make and is dotted with amazing sweet peaches.

Fresh peaches are a summertime favorite and are always enjoyable eaten straight off the pit or skinned, and chopped to add to so many recipes, including cake.  During the summer, I don’t usually spend much time creating layered cakes, unless it’s for a family birthday, but instead I tend to bake single layer cakes that are a cinch to put together, and taste wonderful because of the seasonal fruit.

Peaches are one of those things that are so delightful in a vanilla crumb cake and when sprinkled with granulated sugar before baking, it comes out with a slightly crunchy crust.  There’s no need for icing or glaze on this cake — it’s delicious just the way it is, but maybe a scoop of vanilla ice cream wouldn’t hurt?

To Prepare:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease and line with parchment a 9-inch cake pan.
  2. In a bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt.  Set aside.
  3. In a stand mixture or large bowl, cream butter and sugar for 3 minutes.  Add eggs and continue to mix for 2 minutes.
  4. Add flour mixture and yogurt and mix on low speed for 1 minute.  Add 3/4 of peaches and stir by hand until combined.
  5. Spoon cake batter into prepared pan and top with remaining peaches.  Sprinkle top with sugar and bake in oven for 45 minutes or until a toothpick comes mostly clean.
  6. Remove and let cool 20 minutes before inverting onto a plate, then inverting back onto a cake stand or platter (you want to peaches on top).  Slice and serve warm or room temperature.  Enjoy!
