Peaches n' Cream Cake | #cake #peach #bundtcake #summer #recipe

I was at my local grocery store a few days ago and guess what I found.

Fresh. Local. Peaches.

You know what that means? Summer is really truly here.

No more wishing for summer, and dreaming of peach cake and lavender lemonade. It’s actually time to make them!

Peaches n' Cream - Peach Cake | #cake #peach #bundtcake #summer #recipe

There are very fews things in life that make me happier than fresh ripe peaches.

As a child, I would sit on our back porch on steamy summer afternoons, next to the big bushel of peaches my mom had brought home from the farmer’s market. With my brothers and sisters, I would ravishly devouring peach after peach, until mom finally told us we had had enough. Then we wiped the sticky-sweet juice off our chins and counted our pits. It was somewhat of a contest.

Once I counted 4 pits before mom caught us!

How to Make Peach Cake | #cake #peach #bundtcake #summer #recipe

Every year I keep my fingers crossed that the weather will be suitable for a good crop of peaches. They are temperamental, you know.

When peaches are good, they are really good. Soft, juicy, and almost creamy, with a tangy-sweet essence that lingers on long after you eat them.

When peaches are bad, don’t even bother. The blight flavor and mealy texture are a huge disappointment. On such occasions, I throw in the towel and bake with frozen peaches.

Well, based on my first taste of the season, I think it’s going to be a good year for peaches. So today I’m paying homage to my beloved peach with a Peaches n’ Cream Cake.

This peach cake is something spectacular.

The cake itself is tender and sweet with the fresh creamy flavor of sour cream. It’s freckled with little morsels of sun-ripened peaches, then drizzled with a sweet cream glaze.

It’s not a fussy cake, but a relaxed, homey cake to slice and serve on sultry summer evenings.

It’s the kind of cake you take to a barbecue, or nibble on at a neighborhood picnic. I assure you, your neighbors will be asking for this peach cake recipe after they have a taste.

This ultra moist cream cake with tangy-sweet bits of peach, tastes of summer sunshine.


Yield: 12 slices

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 60-80 minutes

Peach Cake ~ Peaches n' Cream Cake


  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour, divided
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 Tb. vanilla extract
  • 1 lb. diced fresh (or frozen) peaches, with or without skins
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 Tb. heavy cream
  • 1 Tb. orange or pineapple juice


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease and flour a 10 inch Bundt pan (10-15 cup pan.)
  2. In a medium bowl, sift together 2 1/2 cups flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream the butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy, 3-5 minutes. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then add the sour cream and vanilla. Mix until smooth.
  4. Scrape the bowl, then slowly add the flour mixture to the wet mixture. Scrape the bowl again.
  5. Toss the peaches with the remaining ¼ cup of flour. Scoop a third of the batter into the Bundt pan, then sprinkle a third of the peaches on top. Repeat two more times with the remaining batter and peaches.
  6. Place in the oven and reduce the temperature to 325 degrees F. Bake for 60-80 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.
  7. Allow the cake to cool at least 20 minutes in the pan, then turn out onto a wire rack and cool completely. Once cooled whisk together the powdered sugar, heavy cream, and orange juice. Drizzle the glaze over the top of the cake.

    Made this over the weekend. Highly recommended, the scent of baking fruit are ever so nice and delicate. My kids beg not to make it again though as its so addictive! Mine did not turn out as good as the one pictured as I made a novice mistake of taking the pan off immediately… talking about excitement! The recipe is is very flexible. Used self raising as it was the available, put all 300 mls of sourcream as 50 mls will be wasted. Cannot cut the some peaches as overripe but still……… Oh! the cake was ruined for peeking too early and wasn’t iced as needs to go to work after. The morning that it was ready to be iced, the top was gone as the kids ate the one stuck on the pan. Could one swop any other summer fruits? What would you recommend for icing in case of strawberries? Cheers!

    I live like 1 mile from the peach capital of the U.S. You cannot beat fresh ripe summer peaches!! And I always buy way way way too many (they sell them by the bushel at road side stands). I’m totally making this cake!!

    I made this cake for my mom’s birthday last night and it was REALLY good. She has already asked me for the recipe. :) I can see this cake being a good base for other fruits, like maybe an apple cake with cinnamon drizzle? Thanks so much for the recipe!

    BodhiMonkey — June 2, 2014 @ 8:58 am

    Made this over the weekend. Delicious! Here are some of my notes:

    * used 1lb bag of frozen peaches. Was thinking that 1lb fresh was actually less peach than frozen as you’d have to subtract the pits, etc, leaving less peach. This may have affected my cooking time
    * used a slightly smaller bundt pan ( I think this pan is 8 cups vs. traditional bundt at 10 cups. This may have affected my cooking time
    * Cooking Time: at the 60-80 minute mark, my cake was still far from done. The edges were only lightly browned and the middle was still quite jiggly. I kept checking at 5-10 minute increments. I lost track but believe I cooked it for about 110 minutes! It still came out delicious. It wasn’t overcooked on the outside like you might think it would and the inside was still moist and yummy.
    * I LOVE cream cheese frosting, so I made a simple cream cheese frosting and added a touch more milk to make it sag better over the cake. Squirted it onto the cake with a pastry-tip in a plastic bag for ease of application.

    I took the cake to a BBQ I was invited to that night and everyone LOVED it. Also got a couple of requests for the recipe, so in my book that makes it a winner.

    Like I said, don’t be too concerned if you have to cook it a lot longer- just keep checking on it. This is a great recipe. The flavor is very subtle and delicate. We ate the small amount leftover for breakfast the next day. Mmmm-mmmmm…..
