Peach season is in full swing here in Utah, my friends and it’s been delicious to be sure. My kids and I have been putting them on everything. Oatmeal, pancakes, crepes, yogurt…yum. 🙂 I love a good peach! I’ve also been trying my hand at several new peach recipes and this delicious cake I have to share with you today has been our favorite.
A rich, buttery pound cake is studded with juicy fresh peaches and then drizzled in a honey glaze that is scrumptious. It’s a great way to use up those beautiful fresh peaches, my friends.
Let me show you how to make it happen!
1. Preheat your oven to 350 and set the rack to the middle of your oven.
2. Into your stand mixer place 1 cup softened butter and 2 cups sugar. Beat for 1 minute, or until nicely creamed together.
3. Add 6 eggs, one at a time, with the mixer on, then beat for an additional 2 minutes.
4. Add 1 tsp almond extract and 2 tsp vanilla. Mix just until combined.
5. In a separate bowl toss together 3 C flour, 1/4 tsp baking soda and 1/2 tsp salt.
6. Add the dry ingredients to the stand mixer, alternately with 1/2 C sour cream. Mix just until combined.
7. Peel and chop 5-6 peaches, you’ll need 3 cups total. Fold them into the cake batter.
8. Generously butter the inside of your bundt pan, then dust it with sugar.
9. Carefully spread the batter into the bundt pan. Bake for 55-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Be sure not to over bake.
10. Allow the pan to sit on the counter for 15 minutes and cool.
Carefully slip a knife between the pan and the cake to loosen it up a bit. Set a cooling rack over the top of the cake and invert the pan. Allow the cake to cool completely.
11. To make the honey glaze, place 2 C powdered sugar 1/3 C honey, 1 tsp vanilla, 3 Tb milk and a dash of salt into a large glass measuring cup. Whisk to combine. Add a bit more milk if it’s too thick and a bit more powdered sugar if it’s too thin. Drizzle it over the top of the cake.
Serve and enjoy!
