Peach Dapple Cake

Peach Dapple Cake is one of those scrumptious desserts I made with our bumper crop of peaches this summer. Peaches are my favorite fruit.  I very definitely love any sweet treat made with them. I was going through recipes trying to figure out ways I could throw peaches in everything from cookies, to muffins, to cobblers, to cakes, and decided to model this one off of my Apple Dapple Cake recipe. I was quite excited with how this cake turned out.

Peach Dapple Cake is filled with fresh peaches, macadamia nuts and coconut for spectacular flavor. I added a delicious brown-sugar glaze which makes this cake absolutely irresistible. It’s like having caramel on top. Add a scoop of vanilla ice cream and anyone would be in hog heaven.

This was another one of those cakes that I kept passing out to friends after being made once our crop of peaches came in. Obviously, we could never eat all the peaches from 6 peach trees by ourselves! I made a lot of desserts before finally having to stop and pack up our house before selling and moving. Life has been busy!

For the past two weeks I’ve been going back through every new recipe I’ve made for the past two and a half years. At least, 500. Then I had to go back through every recipe I’ve remade over the past two and a half years–at least 300. So I’ve been updating my computerized version of my cookbook to include all these recipes. I like to give these cookbooks away to special friends, especially when they’re getting married, or to friends who really enjoy cooking.

We attended Hillcrest Baptist Church in Cedar Hill, Texas, during the 2000s and got to know the pastor and his wife fairly well. They’re oldest daughter married a couple of weeks ago and I really wanted to give her a copy of my cookbook. But life has been so crazy with us selling our house, moving into a rental home, and building another home that I didn’t have a chance to get it done. I am so relieved that I finally finished it today. From now on I will include all new recipes as soon as I make them so I don’t have to figure out which ones to add after the fact.

For those of you who love cake, Peach Dapple Cake should be one you try soon. This recipe is moist as well as sweet and peachy. 🙂 Beyond that, it’s not overly difficult. Do make sure you bake the cake long enough if you don’t want it to come out of the bundt pan in clumps. I continue cooking until a knife inserted ALL the way to the bottom of the pan comes out clean. Until then it’s not done. Allow it to cool completely – about an hour – before inverting it onto a serving plate. It usually comes out easier that way.

Also make sure you grease and flour the bundt pan extremely well. The icing tends to harden as it sits out, so I usually just continue to spoon it over the cake until I’ve used it all up. Sometimes I wait a minute in between each layer–sometimes not! After the icing sets–about 15 minutes after the last round of icing is drizzled over top–then the cake is ready to cut. Be prepared to dish out seconds and thirds of this magnificent cake!

    No comment on the cake, just your measuring technique. NEVER, NEVER, NEVER use a liquid measuring cup for dry (esp. flour) ingredients. Weighing is the correct method, followed by using a dry measuring cup. AND NEVER SCOOP OR PACK YOUR FLOUR.

    Very poor technique to display
