Peach Pound Cake
Total TimePrep: 10 min. Bake: 1 hour + cooling
Great recipe! Very moist and tasty! Will make this again!
I loved this pound cake. Very rich, but delicious. I love the peaches cut up inside. Great Recipe
I have mango trees, so I substituted them for peaches. Other reviewers suggested decreasing the almond extract, which I did to a half teaspoon. I also used 3 cups of mangoes instead of two. The cake is REALLY good, although I couldn’t taste the almond at all. Next time I will try the full teaspoon of almond extract.
I cut this recipe in half and put it in a loaf pan instead of a bundt pan. It looks and tastes great! The only problem I had was that I buttered and floured the loaf pan and it still stuck! No idea why that happened! I lowered the temp to 330deg because my oven tends to run hot. It took about 58-60 minutes. Like the other reviewer, I allowed the fresh diced peaches to drain on a paper towel before folding them into the batter. I also cut back on the almond extract (using 1/4tsp instead of 1/2). Also, I used salted butter. I really enjoy the taste and plan on putting a whipped cream mousse on it as a dessert. Next time I'll try adding in other fruit as well. I'd make this again!
This is a really good recipe. You can certainly add another cup of peaches if you want, but we thought it was fine as is.
Mmmmm....nummy!! Followed recipe as it is. I'm a fan of the almond extract with peaches. Looking forward to next summer when the fresh peaches are available so I can bake more.
The texture of this cake was wonderful. Crispy/crunchy outside and moist inside. However, like another reviewer posted, it's missing a something, a little depth . I think it needs more salt (when using unsalted butter). I would up it to 1/2 a teaspoon the next time. I also think the almond extract overpowers (and I like almond extract) I will reduce to 1/2 tsp. next time.
Absolutely delicious! The only thing I changed was to add 1 cup of huckleberries along with the peaches.
I will definitely add at least three cups of peaches next time. I used about six fresh, very juicy peaches.
