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.

Peach Cake

Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 1 hour
Total Time: 1 hour 20 minutes
Slice into summer with this heavenly Peach Cake, dappled with fresh ripe peaches and drizzled with sweet cream glaze!
Servings: 12 slices



  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease and flour a 10-inch bundt pan (10- to 15-cup pan.)
  • In a medium bowl, sift together 2 1/2 cups flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  • 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.
  • Scrape the bowl, then slowly add the flour mixture to the wet mixture. Scrape the bowl again.
  • Toss the peaches with the remaining 1/4 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.

  2. Ahhhhmazing! I used frozen peaches because really good peaches are few and far between here. It really doesn’t need the icing. 

  3. Great recipe!!!  I’ve made it two times in the past few weeks – shared with family and everyone loves it!  I did make two teeny tiny changes (sigh, sorry to be one of “those”  reviewers!).  I used 2 tsp of vanilla instead of 1 Tbl….. personal preference…and I did not have 1 pound of peaches so I used 1/2 lb of fresh peaches and 1/2 lb of fresh blueberries.  We liked it so much that this is how I made it the second time too!  I love your trick to get a crunchy “crust” – I’m going to try that method with other Bundt cakes I make too!  Thanks for a delicious recipe!!

  4. This is the Peach Cake Recipe I have been looking for to make for my friends Birthday next week. She will be 96 yrs. old. Question: can I add more diced Peaches ?? Will that make it to wet and soggy?? In your Instructions you said to Preheat the Oven to 375 degrees. Why ??
    Later you say to decrease the oven to 325 degrees. Which one is right ??
    Thanks for your reply in advance. Please email me, so I can know quickly ??  Thanks!!!

    • Hi Aunt Jackie!

      I personally wouldn’t add more peaches, or the cake batter might become too moist and have trouble baking all the way through. The reason I start the oven out at a higher temperature, then lower it, is so that the crust starts to form immediately when the pan is placed in the hot oven. This gives the cake better stability when it’s time to remove it from the pan. Yet as a whole, it needs to bake lower and slower to reach the proper consistency. Hope this helps!

  5. Absolutely delicious and got rave reviews. I followed the recipe exactly, no modifications. 

  6. Made this for my husband’s birthday. It was AMAZING. Such the hit, that I had to make it for my son’s birthday, Easter and Mother’s Day!! Love.love.love it!!

  7. This was wonderful and yummy. My family loved it 💙. Thank you. 

  8. Does this cake have to be refrigerated?

  9. So delicious! Moist! And it begs for another slice.  A friend introduced me to your wonderful cake, and I begged her to share the recipe.  Absolutely wonderful.  This is going to be one of my favorite summer dessert recipes for sure.

  10. This cake was the bomb! Didn’t even need the drizzle, but of course I had to use it. Was so moist and sweet and dreamy. Took it to a family dinner and everyone raved about it. I’m already wanting to make it again. Do you think I could omit the peaches and make it in 2 round cake pans so I can layer it and frost it this time. I saw a previous comment about using the strawberry recipe but I just really loved this cake…


  12. I’ve made this cake several times now to rave reviews. I’ve only used fresh ripe GA peaches but this next round will be my frozen ones. (Gotta make room for this year’s peaches!). Can’t say enough about the tastiness of this cake! Thanks for a delicious cake! 

  13. Turned out great. Used frozen thawed peaches. My husband and daughter loved it with whipping cream. Would make again.

  14. Made this cake with a brown sugar glaze/Carmel and it was delicious! My husband’s all time favorite dessert now, and he’s very particular about sweets. It’s a dense yet light bundt cake and absolutely delicious. I did use canned peaches (using my coronavirus stockpile) and it was amazing. I’m going to try with coconut oil instead of butter as I’m now out of butter and my husband is craving more cake. Will update with result.

  15. I made this recipe to the T. I had to use frozen peaches. The batter was absolutely delicious. The cake was heavy and almost tasteless. I was embarrassed that my husband brought it to his mother at the nursing home for her birthday. It looked beautiful but, again, almost tasteless. Must have been the frozen peaches. It also could have used some cinnamon. So, use FRESH, tasty peaches. I won’t be making this again. Wish it turned out better.

  16. Am looking to make a birthday cake for my son but would like to make a layer cake. Can this be converted to 2 8″ pans?

  17. My family loved this cake! I used fresh, sweet peaches and added some chopped pecans in the bottom of the pan. It added a nice crunch to the top of the cake. Absolutely delicious!

  18. I made this cake and even after mistakenly not turning oven down it came out perfect.  I didn’t even make the frosting glaze it was that good.  I just added a little nutmeg cinnamon and allspice and it was awesome.  Thank you for this recipe.

  19. Made today and hubby said one of his favorite!  Moist!  Added a few chopped pecans to the top. Husband said he would like to have them added to the layers.  PS. Be sure to grease pans well. I use Bakers Joy Spray 

  20. I just made this cake. It is really good, very moist. I had to bake it for 80 minutes, but it came out beautifully. My only issue was that the batter boiled over in the oven. I weighed the peaches and my pan was the right size but the batter level did come up pretty high. Oh well, next time I will put a little batter in a mini-bundt. I think I could cut back on the sugar as well. That would depend on the flavor of the peaches though. I heated up the extra peaches I had with a little butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon, and used that as a topping. Quite delicious.

  23. I have made this cake so many times because everyone who tries it requests that I make it for them again! I use frozen sliced peaches that I dice whilst still frozen and then store in a bowl in my refrigerator until I’m ready to layer them, still frozen, into the Bundt pan with the cake batter. That’s possibly why it takes 95-100 minutes for it to bake in my oven, but it’s well worth the wait. Of all the cakes I bake, from simple muffins through to elaborately decorated birthday cakes, this is by far the most popular, which may be why I’ve been asked to take to a Thanksgiving dinner tomorrow!

  24. This looks so good, perfectly soft and flavourful. We are quite a way off peach season here but I will be making this when it finally comes around

  26. 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 (http://www.surlatable.com/product/PRO-1270636/Nordic+Ware+Jubilee+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…..

  27. 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!

  30. I love it! Now I want to make peach cake!!

  31. 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!!

  32. 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!

  33. Oh, this looks perfectly delightful! I love peaches :)

  34. Peaches won’t be in season here for a while, but when they are, I will be making this lovely thing for my kids!
