Just Simple Peach Cake

Cakes and Cupcakes, Vera's Recipes

MMM, peach cake !!! If you thought “well, here’s a wonderful treat that I will prepare for my guests on the next coming together”, please forget that immediately. Not because of the fact that this beautiful dessert is not tasty because this is a really awesome treat for all peach lovers. The main reason is that there is no way to cut a quality peace of this peach cake and that it stays in one piece :).  It is simply impossible. What you will get on your plate is a pile of peaches and dough, but when you try the first little spoon of this pile, the first thing you will see next is a guaranteed empty plate.

Peach Cake

A few days ago I got the permission to interfere in my husband’s diet.

“Maybe a light cake” he was acting like he was angry even though I had already caught him a few times swallowing chocolate and sweets of all kind like it was nothing 🙂

OK, we will find something with fruit” I was pretending like I understood his pain although I knew that the diet was over and the days of chocolate are coming back to my kitchen.

And on the table, there were 10 beautiful peaches smiling at me. I have them at my house all the time since my son Marco simply adores them.

“Great, finally something the whole family could eat – Peach cake ”. I was very happy and I ran to find a few recipes on Pinterest that I saw much earlier.

And really, everything looked so simple and I took to work immediately. Sugar, eggs, peaches and a few small things and everything was ready to be baked in the hot oven.

And so, in 70 or 80 minutes on my table was a beautiful cake with a beautiful smell which was spreading around the kitchen.

Peach CakeBut after the cake got cold, I tried to get a slice out, nut, the slice flew all over the plate.

“Doesn’t matter, I will be much more careful from now on” I thought while I was cutting the second slice, but the result was the same.

But when my “gourmands” jumped on the cake, nobody mentioned it once. You could just hear mumbling and munching and the forks hitting the plate. The cake was really heavenly delicious and yet refreshing.

Well, OK, it doesn’t always have to look like it’s going to be at an expo, but if somebody has an explanation for this problem, please call me!!!

  1. Hello, In step one, you state to grease the pan and sprinkle with brown sugar followed by line the bottom of the pan with parchment. I am not a baker, so please excuse myquestion. Should these instructions be reversed? Insert pachment, grease and sprinkle with briwn sugar? I wiuld like t make this for Saturday's dessert. I'll be using thawed frozen peaches.Thank you.
    1. Hi Jane, thanks for pointing that out, my mistake. Fist grease the pan, then line the bottom of the greased pan with parchment paper, and then sprinkle the sugar.
      1. Thank you for your quick response, Vera! The recipe looks easy for me and the cake looks pretty and light. I always stress about making desserts and usually resort to something from the store. I am venturing out.
  2. Hi Vera!!! OHHHHHH MYYYYYY GAAWWD!!! You know how some ppl try and make a weekly dinner chart for each day of the week....well, U guessed it, with ALL these mouthwatering summer dessert recipes you've shared with us.....DESSERT COMES FIRST at Suppertime in MY house...LOL!!! 1. Strawberry white chocolate cookies, 1. Strawberry Pound cake 3. Simple Peach Cake & I haven't finished "thumbing" thru your blog Miss Vera to finish up the other 4 days of the week...but I WILL!!! luv ya, Lynda A.
  3. Here would be my remedy for the "looseness" of this cake. Call it pudding-cake and pass out spoons! It seems to me the complexity of the texture would be totally minimized by the divine flavor. I'm going to make this "pudding-cake" immediately. Thank you!
    1. Hi Kathy, I wouldn't recommended frozen peches because this cake is really gooey even with fresh peaches.
  4. Do you line just the bottom of the pan with parchment paper (which would require one cutting a circle out or have edges of parchment paper come up into sides of pan (inside). Is this to contain pie or to keep pan clean? Thanks.
  5. you might try a piece of parchment or wax paper on the bottom of the springform pan so it doesn't stick. the reason it stuck is because o fthe sugar and the juices from the peaches.
  6. I was looking for a simple peach recipe and decided to use yours. What a great decision, it came out delicious. I followed the directions except for the sprinkling of brown sugar and using parchment paper. The cake had a bread pudding consistency, just wonderful. The next time I will add raisins. Thanks.
  7. I found this too sweet for my taste. I'd recommend half the sugar. Other than that, it was hard to get the cake to bake all the way through to the middle without burning on top. There is a lot of liquid from the peaches. Next time I'll try adding a few extra tablespoons of flour and leaving out the milk.
