Chocolate Chip Peach Pound Cake | Can't Stay Out of the Kitchen

Chocolate Chip Peach Pound Cake

October 9, 2015Teresa

Well, I’ve saved the best for last! Chocolate Chip Peach Pound Cake was my favorite of all the cakes I made with peaches this year. I know what you’re thinking….chocolate and peaches??? Seriously? Yes, yes, a thousand times, YES! It was so stinkin’ good. Truly. This pound cake has an extra fine texture because it’s made with cake flour, it’s moist because it uses sour cream (and of course the fruit keeps it moist), and the texture and taste is wonderful because of all that chocolate. Chocolate in the cake and chocolate in the icing. Yes, yes, yes!

I offered this cake and my Peach and Almond Pound Cake to our pastor after the birth of their fourth child. I said, “Which cake would you rather have?” They chose the one with almonds and loved it. I texted him later and told him he missed out. While the Peach and Almond Cake was fantastic, this one was spectacular. “Oh, man,” he said with regrets. I don’t remember who ended up getting this cake, but my samplings of it made it the clear winner for me.

I have only one more peach dessert to share this year, and probably won’t make more than one or two each year in the future since we no longer live out in the “country” with all those peach trees. Still, I have determined that peaches go well in any type of dessert and with any combination of flavors (extracts), nuts, and in combination with other baking goodies. For those of you who enjoy both cake and peaches and chocolate, this cake is a must try!

You won’t regret making this outrageous cake. But don’t expect any leftovers! In fact, I guarantee, you probably won’t even want dinner. You’ll just want a few slabs of this great cake instead. 🙂

    Sorry for the “Casanova” what I wrote was “can”. Phone second guesses you g r.rr

      Sue, let me recommend one thing on baking. If I bake muffins I usually adjust the temperature. Fill the muffins about 3/4 full. Bake in a preheated 425 degree oven for 5 minutes. This allows the the muffins to rise. Then decrease the temperature and bake an additional 15-20 minutes OR until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. I usually allow them to cool about 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to drizzle the icing over the top. Enjoy.

    Casanova you make muffins with this recipe? I have all ingredients plus 3 children who love cupcakes/muffins

      Please forgive the Casanova I wrote “can”. Blame my phone

        Sue, one more thing. The muffins will have to be completely cool before drizzling the icing over top or the heat will cause the icing to just about dissolve into the muffins. Also, I try to use as little liquid as possible so the icing is just thick enough to drizzle over the top. Hope that helps. I’m sure your kids will love them.

      Hi, Sue. I believe these would turn out spectacularly as muffins/cupcakes. Enjoy.

    I made this for my family tonight, and we all loved it! I didn’t have fresh peaches on hand, so I used 2 cups of canned peaches instead. Thank you very much for sharing this recipe!

      So glad you and your family loved the cake, Eric. Glad to know it works with canned peaches as well as fresh. I thought chocolate and peaches went really well together. 🙂
