Peach and Almond Pound Cake

Peach and Almond Pound Cake is a delectable dessert using cake flour for a much finer consistency.  Peaches and almonds….together….with cake! Yummy. Peaches and both almond extract and sliced almonds add double the almond taste. Topped off with a powdered sugar glaze, this is all you could desire in a delicious cake dessert. It’s also very easy to make, which doesn’t hurt.

The biggest thing about bundt cakes, which I’ve mentioned before, is making sure you cook the cake thoroughly. Put a knife all the way to the bottom of the cake pan. If it comes out even slightly gooey, keep cooking! I really enjoy making bundt cakes. Except for greasing and flouring the pan (which is annoying but not difficult) they are so quick and easy. They’re just a lot easier for me to make than a traditional layer cake. Granted, they are usually not as sweet because they’re minus all that frosting, but they are still wonderful. Most bundt cakes make great coffeecakes for breakfast as well as serving them for dessert.

When I baked this cake in late July, I gave it to our pastor and his wife (along with a meal) for the birth of their fourth child. I gave them the option of this cake or a Peach Chocolate Chip Cake which I had baked earlier and frozen in my freezer. They chose this one and loved the cake. Peaches and almonds work well in muffins, pies, cakescookies, brownies or any kind of dessert. It was also a great way to use up a lot of fresh peaches from our six peach trees.

Well, I only have a couple more recipes to post from my peach desserts. (I’m sorry if you’re tired of them). When It’s all said and done I have about 85+ peach recipes, so if you’re looking for ways to use up fresh peaches, check out my archives because there are plenty of peach recipes that will float your boat! 🙂 Peach and Almond Pound Cake is one of them. Give it a whirl but be prepared to drool. 🙂

Grease and flour a 10-inch bundt pan very generously. Spoon batter into prepared pan. Bake at 300 for 1 1/2 hours or until a knife inserted in center comes out clean. (I think I actually baked this at 350 for 1 1/2 hours). Cool cake completely.

    Can any of your peach Bundt cakes be frozen after baking . If so does the glaze get put on before or after freezing

      Hi, Marsha. All of my bundt cakes can be frozen. You can freeze them with the icing on, but you will have to allow the icing to dry first and then wrap very carefully with plastic wrap and then foil. The cakes can be frozen for a month or two. After that, they may start drying out too much.
