Peach Cake

Peach Cake is simply delightful. I love when recipes turn out great! Peach Cake is a conversion of my Apple Cake recipe that I’ve had for years and years and decided to substitute peaches for the apples this time. Same wonderful texture, delicious taste, and ease of making, but with peaches! Yum. Peach Cake includes pecans but you can easily substitute walnuts, cinnamon adds zest, and it has a delicious brown sugar glaze that coats the cake after baking. Spectacular is only one adjective I can use to describe this lovely cake.

I was throwing peach desserts together in July like crazy trying to use up our peaches before we got down to the serious job of packing up our house and moving. I was handing out cakes, muffins and cookies to friends almost daily to clear the stuff out of my house. 🙂 After a few nibbles, I sent Peach Cake on to some friends of ours who are allowing us to rent their grandfather’s house while we are waiting for our new home to be completed. Grandpa is in assisted living and didn’t mind allowing us to take care of his house for a few months. It helped us out tremendously because we didn’t have to lock into a year-long lease and end up paying a penalty for leaving early. It helped him out having someone watching the house, too.

Let me make a few suggestions for any time you’re making a bundt cake. Make sure you grease and flour the pans extremely well. Cooking spray will not work well. I slather shortening in the whole pan and especially around the tube in the middle. Then I add flour sprinkling it directly on the tube and rotating the pan until every inch of the pan is covered. If you don’t want your cake to come out in clumps, you will have to do this first.

Second, you must bake the cake LONG enough. Forget what the amount on the recipe says. I only have one bundt cake that actually cooks under an hour. Most of them take about 1 1/2 hours! Put a knife all the way down to the bottom of the pan. Until it comes out clean, the cake is underbaked. Third, allow the cake to cool completely before removing from the pan, then using a rubber spatula, carefully ease the spatula around the circumference of the pan. I try to even work it around the tube if I can. Place a plate on top of the cake and invert. It should come out easily if you’ve done all these things.

I will tell you that if you have a sugar coating, or a sugar/nut layer that sometimes those extra coatings and layers stick to the pans and you may have difficulties. This recipe usually comes out of the bundt pan really well. If you’re looking for a super duper way to use up peaches, then give Peach Cake a try. Everyone to whom you serve it will love it!

I used these ingredients for the cake.

Peach Cake | Can't Stay Out of the Kitchen | spectacular #cake made with #peaches and #pecans. This one has a scrumptious brown sugar glaze. #dessert

Place oil in a mixing bowl. Add eggs, sugar, cinnamon, baking soda, salt and vanilla.

Whisk ingredients to combine.

Add UNBLEACHED all-purpose flour. Bleached flour toughens baked goods. Add peaches and pecans.

Stir ingredients to combine.

Grease and flour (very generously) a 10-inch bundt pan. Pour batter into pan.

Bake at 350 for about 1 hour 15 minutes to 1 1/2 hours OR until a knife inserted in center comes out clean. Allow cake to cool completely before adding glaze. This will take about an hour.

I used these ingredients to make the glaze.

Melt butter with brown sugar and vanilla over medium heat in saucepan.

Bring to a boil and boil about 5-10 minutes. Mixture will thicken slightly but as it cools it will thicken more.

Spoon about a third of the glaze over top of inverted cake. The first batch is usually runnier. As the icing cools it thickens up. Allow glaze to soak into cake a minute or so before adding the next round of glaze. Again, allow the glaze to soak into the cake and spoon all the remaining glaze on top of the cake. Allow glaze to harden before cutting. This may take 10 or 15 minutes.

    I appreciate the tips about getting a bundt cake out of the pan, Teresa. There is nothing worse than working hard on making a cake and then it all comes out in a pile! This cake looks wonderful. It looks so moist and has a lot going on in it. And of course, I love the glaze that is poured over it!

      Thanks, Shari. I remember the first time I baked a bundt cake, I was about 20 years old – I followed the time on the directions and the cake came out of the pan in clumps! I was SOOO disappointed. It was much later before I realized the importance of cooking a bundt cake all the way through and testing it with a knife. It made all the difference in the world. 🙂
