Peach season is here. My son and I went to a local farm and picked fresh peaches. They were so delicious and I wanted to bake something with them right away. Peach Cake is soft, moist, and loaded with peaches. This recipe is simple and made with ingredients that you can find in every kitchen. You asked me for more recipes that are easy to make and require no baking skills. This recipe is one of them.

Tip from Marina: to peel peaches faster, add peaches into boiling water for one minute and then place in cold water. Skin will peel easily.

How to serve Peach Cake

Peach Cake is best to eat when it is at room temperature. I would not recommend to eat warm. Dust cake with powdered sugar and serve with ice cream on the side. Decorate with fresh mint leaves.

How to store

Store Peach Cake in the air-tight container or wrapped in the plastic wrap for 2-3 days. You can also freeze cake for 1-2 months.

Expert Tips

  • Use fresh ripe peaches. Frozen peaches will give to much moister and the texture of the cake will not be the same.
  • Measure all ingredients correctly. Use kitchen scale.
  • Baking time may be different, depending on your oven. Check with the wooden stick inserted in the center of the cake.
  • Use room temperature ingredients. I repeat, room temperature.
  • For more flavor add a few apricots with the peaches.
