Are you a peach lover like I am? I literally wait all year for the fresh peaches to arrive.
This year I’m super excited because I haven’t been able to eat them for a couple of years.
As many of you know, I’m a throat cancer survivor. In 2015 I had a feeding tube and couldn’t eat. In 2016 my tastebuds hadn’t quite recovered from the radiation treatments so I couldn’t taste them.
This year I intend on making up for lost time! Stay tuned for more peachy recipes.
In case you missed it, you can find my post on how to easily peel peaches here.
You’ll need about 3-4 peeled and chopped medium sized peaches for this Peaches and Cream Cake.
Start by prepping your loaf pans. You can use regular cooking spray, but for sticky recipes like this I like to use baking spray.
Baking spray has flour in it and works better for baked goods. Pam Spray For Baking and Bakers Joy are the brands I like best. Store brands don’t seem to work as well so pop an extra few cents for the name-brand, it’s worth it. You can find them by the other cooking sprays or by clicking the links above.
Next, add the topping ingredients to a bowl and mash with a fork until it’s all crumbly. Set that aside while you mix together the batter.
In a medium bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set it aside so it’s ready to go.
Next, in a large mixing bowl, beat the butter and sugar together until they’re light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. You’ll want a mixer for this, stand or hand, doesn’t matter.
Now add the eggs one at a time. Mix in each one well before you put the next one in. Put them in a measuring cup, it makes it easier and they slip in one at a time all by themselves.
When the eggs are in, add the vanilla and sour cream.
Then, with the mixer running, add the flour mixture at little at a time until it’s all incorporated.
Finally, Drain off any excess juice from the peaches and stir them in by hand.
Divide the batter between your loaf pans and sprinkle each loaf with half of the topping.
Bake for 55-60 minutes or until a toothpick comes out with a few moist crumbs. Cool your Peaches and Cream Cake loaves in the pan for 10 minutes then cool the rest of the way on a wire rack.
Slice and enjoy! Sometimes the topping falls off during cutting. Just scoop it up and toss it back on.
Check back over the next few weeks, I’ll be sharing more peachy goodness like my No Churn Peach Raspberry Sorbet
