Peach Cake with Almond Glaze

Posted 9/13/2021

When the Girl’s boyfriend moved back to Alberta from the Okanagan, he brought us a case of BC peaches. The fruity smell filled my kitchen, and I was excited to bake with them. Before the peaches had time to be eaten or go bad, I made this fresh, summery cake twice and it was devoured almost immediately each time. I made an almond glaze for the second cake, and it was a very nice addition.

Ingredients

 

Cake Batter

1 1/2    cups     all-purpose flour

1 1/2    tsp        baking powder

1            tsp        salt

3/4        cup       butter, softened

1            cup       sugar

3            large     eggs, room temperature

2            tsp        lemon juice

1            tsp        vanilla extract

2 1/4    cups     ripe peaches, approx. 4 medium, peeled and chopped finely

 

Glaze

1            cup       powdered sugar

1            tbsp      melted butter

1/2        tsp        salt

1/4        tsp        almond extract

1/3        cup       ripe peach, approx. ½ medium, peeled and chopped finely, drained of juice

 

Directions

 

Step 1: Preheat oven to 350F. Grease a 9” or 10” springform pan.

Step 2: Mix flour, baking powder, and salt together in a small bowl and set aside.

Step 3: In a large bowl, beat butter on med/high speed until glossy. Add sugar and continue beating until fluffy.

Step 4: Add eggs, one at a time, mixing well between each addition. Blend in lemon juice and vanilla.

Step 5: Stir in flour mixture until just blended.

Step 6: Fold in peaches. Pour batter into springform pan.

 

 

Step 7: Bake for approx. 35-60 min, depending on size of pan. I use a 10” springform pan and the cake is usually done around 35-40 minutes. Use a toothpick to check for doneness.

Step 8: Allow cake to cool completely before glazing.

Step 9: Mix all glaze ingredients together until smooth. Pour over cooled cake.

Step 10: Sift additional powdered sugar over glaze if desired.

 

 

What a wonderful use of those extra summer peaches!

Scrumptious!
