Slice into summer with this heavenly Peach Cake, dappled with fresh ripe peaches and drizzled with sweet cream glaze!
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!
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!
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.
