Peach Sheet Cake
Peach Sheet Cake is another superb dessert recipe using peaches! This lovely cake is a take-off on my Pineapple Sheet Cake recipe, but instead of using crushed pineapple, I substituted finely diced peaches. After baking, you pour a brown sugar icing with coconut and pecans or walnuts over the top.
Peach Sheet Cake is spectacular. You can serve it warm with ice cream or plain. But no matter how you serve it, you will enjoy every mouthful of this luscious cake. It’s rich, moist and completely satisfying.
Any of you who follow my blog know I’ve been using up bushels of peaches from our back yard. I stumbled across this recipe that I’ve had for years and didn’t see why it couldn’t be made with peaches as well as pineapple. Oh, my. Every bite just seemed to dissolve in my mouth!
Another reason I like this recipe is that it’s really very simple. You mix everything together. There are very few steps and nothing is difficult. On top of that, this recipe is quite economical. You can substitute canned peaches too, if you drain them (at least most of the way) and then dice up the slices.
For those of you who have an abundance of peaches (like me), or those who enjoy peach desserts (like me), or for those of you who delight in trying new recipes (like me), then you’ve got to make up a Peach Sheet Cake soon. It’s great for holiday entertaining, especially in summer while you can still get peaches fairly inexpensively.
It’s a great dessert for tailgating parties, grilling out with friends, or potlucks. It transports rather easily, especially if you keep the cake in the dish rather than trying to put it on an oblong serving platter. It’s ooey, gooey and so delish. And, if you offer some of this delicious Peach Sheet Cake to your friends, I bet very few refuse a piece. Probably only those on special diets. So, if you’re in the mood for a gooey, rich cake, then go ahead and make up this cake immediately. And prepare yourself for utter bliss. 🙂
Peach Sheet Cake is so ooey, gooey and delicious!
Peach Sheet Cake will certainly satisfy any sweet tooth cravings you may have.
I love this easy cake recipe.
Here’s what I did.
I used these ingredients for the cake.
Place UNBLEACHED all-purpose flour in a mixing bowl. (Bleached flour toughens baked goods). Add eggs, sugar, baking soda and either canola oil or coconut oil.
Add finely diced peaches.
Stir all the ingredients with a wooden spoon to combine.
Pour cake batter into a greased 10×15″ baking dish.
Bake at 350 for 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
As cake is baking, prepare icing: I used these ingredients for the icing.
Place butter and sugar in a saucepan. Heat over low to medium heat. Add either heavy whipping cream, half-and-half or evaporated milk. (I used cream).
Stir to combine ingredients and cook over low to medium heat for 10 minutes until mixture thickens.
Turn off heat. Add coconut and nuts.
Stir to combine. Pour icing over cake while hot.
Pour the icing ingredients over top of the cake. Serve warm or cold, with or without ice cream.
Peach Sheet Cake is great to eat hot right out of the oven. Yum.
I love all the delicious peaches in this recipe.

The nice thing about Peach Sheet Cake is it’s quick and easy to make as well as economical–especially if you have home-grown peaches! 🙂
I like to leave the cake in the baking dish and serve it straight from the dish.
