I love the summer for all its bounty.  The fabulous berries, squash, melons, and beans just to name a few. But, I especially love the peaches.

Seeing them arrive is bittersweet, though.  You are excited to eat them, but it is a sure sign summer produce is coming to an end!

peach dessert: pound cake with cobbler topping

Peach Pound Cake

In anticipation of the fall season and with love of all the summer brings us, I developed this fabulous peach pound cake, which is a combination of two of my favorite desserts… peach cobbler and pound cake. 

The seasons freshest most flavorful peaches combined with some of my favorite fall flavors. 

Vanilla, nutmeg and cinnamon combine with a touch of almond and peach Schapps to really bring the flavor home.

Sugared pans, in lieu of floured help to create a fantastic crisp crust, the perfect touch to this melt in your mouth moist pound cake!

As if that isn’t enough to make your mouth water, drizzle slices of this incredible cake with a simple brown sugar caramel sauce for the perfect Peach Cobbler Cake!  This is ‘happy dance in the kitchen’ good.

Sometimes you really need to be up inside the cake.  This is one of those moments, trust me.  You see those beautiful fresh peach chunks in that moist pound cake with that crisp crust…  Um…  Would you like a napkin?  You’re drooling.       : )

  2. You're so right about peaches — a short window of juiciness, then they're gone. Love 'em, though.

  3. This sounds wonderful, Donna!! You know exactly how much I love my peach desserts. That closeup is a GREAT shot too.

  10. I have fresh peaches that I frozen last summer if I thaw then and pat them dry can they be used in this reeipe

  11. I'm confused, the recipe says to fold the peaches into the batter. I see peaches on top, not in the cake. What am I missing here?

  12. Do you have to use the peach schnapps? Seems like a big investment for just 2 TBS of use. ANy substitution?
