Peach Bundt Cake

Last year was the year of the peach for me.  I got onto a kick where I was eating peaches everyday in everything from smoothies to french toast to cake.  I love the subtle, sweet flavor they have and they are so versatile.  One of my favorite recipes that I made was this peach bundt cake, a classic bundt cake with the addition of fresh peaches and drizzled with cream cheese icing.  It is an elegant treat that serves about 10 so it’s great for summer parties or holiday gatherings.

When I serve this cake, I love to put a dollop of homemade whipped cream on top and a drizzle of salted caramel sauce or butterscotch sauce to make it even tastier!

Ingredients

Peach Bundt Cake

  • 4 sticks butter (softened)
  • 2 cups granulated sugar (divided)
  • 8 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups fresh peaches (chopped)

Cream Cheese Icing

  • 4 ounces cream cheese (softened)
  • 4 tablespoons butter (softened)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup powdered sugar

Instructions

Peach Bundt Cake

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and grease a bundt pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Using a stand or hand mixer, beat butter, vanilla, and 2 cups of sugar together on medium speed until light and fluffy - about 2 minutes.
  3. Next, add the eggs one at a time. Be sure each egg is fully incorporated before adding the next.
  4. On low speed, add in the flour slowly. Stop once the flour is fully incorporated and be sure not to over mix this step.
  5. Gently fold the peach chunks into the batter.
  6. Transfer the batter to the pan and bake for 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  7. When finished, let the bundt cool for about 5 minutes and then run a knife around the edge and turn it out onto a wire rack to cool completely.

Cream Cheese Icing

  1. Using a stand or hand mixer, beat the butter, vanilla, and cream cheese together on medium speed until it is smooth and creamy - about 2 minutes.
  2. On low speed, add the powdered sugar a little at a time. Continue mixing and adding powdered sugar, scraping down the sides of the bowl as necessary. Once all of the powdered sugar has been added, turn the mixer to high speed and beat until the icing is light and fluffy - about 2 minutes. If it is too thick, add 1-2 tablespoons of milk.
  3. Drizzle over the completely cooled bundt cake.
  4. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
