Peaches ‘n Cream Pound Cake

August 30, 2014Teresa

Wow, Peaches ‘n Cream Pound Cake is one delicious cake. I started with my favorite  Cream Cheese Pound Cake recipe and then added loads of fresh, home-grown peaches from our back yard. The result was sensational. My pound cake recipes all use cake flour which is much finer, so the texture is much finer than regular all-purpose flour.

The cake is much denser, but due to the cream cheese and peaches the cake is moist rather than dry. This pound cake has a lot of sugar as well as a luscious cinnamon glaze so it’s rich and decadent even though there’s no chocolate involved! We found the combination of flavors and texture just wonderful.

Those of you who read my daily posts have seen a lot of different peach recipes come through the past few weeks as a result of six mature fruit bearing peach trees in the back section of our property. The first couple of years here we didn’t get a crop because of birds, squirrels, and not being in town during the harvest.

Last year they just seemed to die on the branch. So this year when we were putting in a new sprinkler system we added a section to water the peach trees in the back because we rarely get rain in Texas during the summer. The peaches came out strong, but next year we’re going to thin them out so they grow larger, and spray after the blossoms appear to get rid of the worms and spots, so we can enjoy more peaches for eating.

As it was, I had my hands full for two straight weeks. I could have made jellies or frozen them (and I may next year), but this year I decided to just bake…and bake…and bake…and bake some more!

Peaches ‘n Cream Pound Cake turned out so well. It’s a great cake for breakfast, brunch or dessert and certainly nice enough for special occasions. If fresh peaches aren’t available diced, frozen peaches would be the next best thing. And if all else fails, dice up canned peaches if you want to make this lovely cake in the winter or spring before peaches are in season again.

While Peaches ‘n Cream Pound Cake is similar to my Peaches ‘n Cream Coffeecake recipe, the textures and tastes are completely different. Each is special in its own way.

If your mouth is watering after looking at these pictures, and you love pound cakes, then make a bee-line to the store and get whatever you need to make up one of these cakes right now! Each mouthful is filled with fruit so the cake is delectable and addictive. Plus, your family will just adore this delightful cake.

Here are a couple of tips before using bundt pans: grease and flour the pan really well. Don’t take the cake out of the oven until a knife inserted ALL the way to the bottom comes out clean. This is usually close to an hour and a half–especially with slow ovens. Beware! If you don’t bake the cake long enough it will come out in clumps. Yikes!

Cool the cake completely before inverting onto a serving plate. Use a narrow rubber spatula around the edges and the cylinder to ease removal. Because there is so much filling for this cake, you may want to place it on a cookie sheet to pick up any drips. Use the largest possible bundt cake pan for this cake.

Finally, after drizzling the cinnamon icing over top, allow the icing to set about 15 minutes before cutting or wrapping in plastic wrap. That way the icing has a chance to harden and won’t become messy. Then prepare yourself for a culinary experience to die for!

Peaches ‘n Cream Pound Cake is moist because of all the fresh peaches in the batter, so it’s not dry like some pound cakes.

  2. Drizzle over cooled cake.
Recipe Notes

NOTE: It is critical that you do not underbake the cake. If you do the cake will come out in clumps.

NOTE: You must use the largest bundt pan available. Even still the cake will rise considerably while baking. I recommend using a narrow rubber spatula to go between the cake and the bundt pan so that it makes the cake come out easier. You may have to use a knife to separate the cake from the center tube in order to enable the cake to come out of the pan easier.

NOTE: My oven runs slow. I'm never able to get this cake done in less than 1 1/2 hours. But you should start checking at about 1 hour 15 minutes. If a knife inserted to the very bottom of the cake comes out completely clean, then the cake is done.

NOTE: Allow icing to set 15 minutes before cutting cake.

    How many inches or cups is the bundt pan that YOU used? I might have to buy a bigger pan.
    This recipe sounds amazing!!💐
    I don’t want to mess it up!
    I’m very precise in the Science of Baking. Lol
    P.S. And a bit anal!! 😅

      Hi Rhonda. I’m on vacation in Hawaii at the moment and can’t measure the pan but it’s a pretty large one. This is what I would do: Fill your pan so that the batter/fruit comes up about one and a half inches from the top. Don’t fill it any higher no matter how much filling you have. Put the rest in some other baking dish. That way the recipe can expand while baking. There are many times my batter will expand over the top of the pan so it’s helpful to have a cookie sheet underneath to catch drips. But when that happens it’s hard to get the cake out of the pan. To be safe, just use a little less if necessary. Just make sure you cook it long enough. Some of these bundt pans can take 1 1/2 hours to bake completely. Put a knife all the way to the bottom of the pan. Until there is no goo left on the knife, the cake is not done (and it will fall out of the pan in clumps, yikes!) It’s really a great cake, I hope you give it a try.

      Hi, Barbara. I know it sounds odd, but it does not call for any of those ingredients. It does call for cake flour. Enjoy.

    1. Teresa

      June 25, 2018 at 11:35 am

      Hi there, Jeanne. I haven’t. But I’m sure you could bake it that way if you prefer. The biggest difference will be baking time. Depending on how deep the batter fills the pan you may need to start checking after about 45 minutes. If you have a hot oven, maybe sooner. Check with a toothpick for doneness. Let me know how it turns out. 🙂

    Description and directions say Sour Cream, but I don’t see that listed in the recipe. Should it be 8 oz of Cream Cheese as written or 8 oz of Sour Cream? Thanks for the clarification.

    1. Teresa

      August 31, 2014 at 10:20 pm

      Oh, Tracey, thanks for the good catch. I went back and looked at my recipes and realized I used my Cream Cheese Pound Cake recipe and not my Sour Cream Pound Cake recipe as the basis for this dessert. I was making so many peach recipes each day for two solid weeks, and I was trying to be faithful in copying down ingredients carefully, but I sure missed it on this one. Thanks so much for letting me know. I’ve corrected it in the post and the recipe card.

      I hope you try it. It was really spectacular.

    I couldn’t find any fresh peaches. Could you use frozen or canned peaches? Of course they would be thawed or drained before using. I love this cake idea and can’t wait to try it.

    1. Teresa

      August 31, 2014 at 12:07 pm

      Hey, Teri, I would use either of them, but dice them and pat the peaches dry before adding to the batter. Hope you enjoy it.

    Is the texture cakey at all? Cause it looks a little gluey from the pictures.

    1. Teresa

      August 30, 2014 at 12:10 pm

      It is cakey, but if you’ve ever used cake flour it has a much finer consistency than regular flour. There are not a lot of air pockets like when using regular all-purpose flour. Rather than being dried out like most pound cakes are, this one is moist due to the sour cream and peaches. I didn’t find the cake “gluey.” If you are afraid of the cake being “gluey” you can always bake it longer. I baked this one about 1 1/2 hours. If you bake it too long, though, the cake will dry out. Sorry, I can’t be any more help than that.
