Hmmmmmm, delish! I made this and shared a few years ago so it's a repeat. Since peaches are available now I was reminded of this cake. Anyway, if you like a great Southern dessert ~ and who doesn't? ~ try this with fresh peaches. I have used frozen as a substitute and it was very tasty. You could certainly use other fresh fruits. Don't you know that fresh cherries would be divine? Of course, it is NOT low fat, etc. Like Paula Deen, you gotta use that butter & sugar! :-)
I have not adjusted to taking photos while cooking or baking. :-) I did think of it as I took the cake from the oven so there are a few pics to share with you. Please, please forgive the lousy photos! This was posted when I first started this blog and had no idea what I was doing. Not to say that I do now! ;)
Here's the recipe:
Ingredients1 cup butter or margarine, softened
2 cups white sugar ~ I used a scant 2 cups since the frozen peaches were unsweetened. Depending on the sweetness of the fruit, you could prolly use less.
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups fresh peaches, pitted and chopped
1.Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Butter a 10 inch tube pan and coat with white sugar.
I did not use the sugar...sprayed the pan with Baker's Joy ~
2.In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well with each addition, then stir in the vanilla. Reserve 1/4 cup of flour for later, ~ important! ~ and sift together the remaining flour, baking powder and salt. Gradually stir into the creamed mixture. Use the reserved flour to coat the chopped peaches, then fold the floured peaches into the batter. This helps to prevent all the peaches sinking to the bottom. Spread evenly into the prepared pan.
3.Bake for 60 to 70 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean. Allow cake to cool in the pan for 10 minutes, before inverting onto a wire rack to cool completely. 16 servings
And...always add the Love!
