    Hey, so I only have a few small peaches….Can I still make this, but simply substitute the remaining peaches with apples? Reply

        Hi Joann, it may overwhelm a regular cake pan. It would probably fit into a 10β€³ cake pan or a 9β€³ square pan, but a regular 9β€³ round pan probably won’t have tall enough walls. Reply

      Hi Joann, I think that should work so long ad the apples are not sliced too thickly. Reply

      February 1, 2018

      Hi Gemma, I haven’t had that experience. Did you use more peaches that what the recipe calls for? Were they frozen, fresh, canned? The type of peaches used and quantity might cause it to be more moist. I hope that helps! Reply

    I am curious as to why your videos show you using vegetable oil for the top four cakes, but the recipes say 3/4 c. butter?
    I am referring to the blueberry-lemon; strawberry w/sb sauce, apple cake; and peach cakes. Reply

      Hi Patricia, The strawberry cake and blueberry cake have the same base but the peach cake and apple cake are completely different so they do not use oil πŸ™‚ The apple cake does not have any oil or butter in it at all πŸ™‚ Reply

    I love your recipes but for this one, I just had to add 1/2 cup of milk and replaced the butter with just about 1/4 c of coconut oil & turned out perfectly delicious and moist cake! I was just wondering what the outcome would be without any liquid component to the batter. So, I didn’t take any chances but added the milk instead. πŸ™‚ Reply

    Hi Natasha,
    I just wanted to say, I tried about half of the recipes on your website, I am a huge fan of all the recipes. I wanted to especially compliment you on this cake, it is just outstanding! I wanted to try it with strawberries instead of peaches, can you tell me how much strawberries I will have to add? I would think 2 lb, but afraid it’s too much. Reply

    • Natasha
      natashaskitchen
      October 9, 2017

      Hi Zhanna, I haven’t tried this particular one with strawberries but I do think that would be too much. Take a look at my easy strawberry cake which is similar to this one for ideas on how much and how to incorporate the strawberries. πŸ™‚ you could use the 2nd pound of strawberries for sauce like I did in the other strawberry cake which works really well. Reply

      Hi Alice, I think that could work well, just be sure they are very well drained and let them sit in a colander while you are preparing the batter. Reply

    Love your recipes- just wondering with the peach cake if this recipe can be made into cupcakes and the added peaches on top dipped in a simple syrup prevent them from browning, again I love your recipes and videos Reply

    • Natasha
      natashaskitchen
      September 17, 2017

      Hi Germaine, I haven’t tried making this into cupcakes but I do think it’s worth an experiment! the idea of dipping the peaches for the topping sounds great! If you dip them, you probably won’t need to dust with powdered sugar since it will become moist and won’t be visible. Reply

  • Lidiya
    September 13, 2017

    Hey Natasha, I made this yesterday and it is delicious! The peaches did sink to the bottom though, any idea why that could have happened? I did end up using about a cup more of peaches than the recipe because I had really big peaches (not sure if that had anything to do with it). Reply

    • Natasha
      natashaskitchen
      September 13, 2017

      Hi Lidiya, it could be due to using too much peaches or maybe cutting the pieces too large. The peaches are heavy so they can weigh down the cake and sink to the bottom if there are too many. I’ve had that experience when making my blueberry cake. I’m so glad you loved it πŸ™‚ Reply

      • Jackie
        September 15, 2017

        Hi Natasha,

        Love your website. I use a little trick to keep blueberries from sinking… coat in a little bit of flour before adding to mix!

      September 12, 2017

      Hi Cathy, I haven’t tried anything besides butter so I’m not sure if a dairy free substitute would work or would create the proper consistency for the cake since there is no liquid in this cake besides the eggs. I just haven’t tested anything else. Maybe someone else has tried? Thanks in advance! πŸ™‚ Reply

    This cake is fantastic. It reminds me of my childhood and the delicious cakes my mom used to bake. The batter itself is worthy of being consumed raw. Although that may not be a great idea.

    So easy to make and the taste is wonderful! I really love this cake as another wonderful way to use peaches. I’ve already frozen several batches of peaches to make this cake during the winter.

    We stopped at the farmers market last weekend and picked up a big basket of peaches. Unfortunately, they were getting ripe faster than we could eat them — so this recipe came at the perfect time. Made it tonight and it was YUMMY! Took all my will power not to eat the whole darn thing. I’ll admit one piece wasn’t enough and I did go back for seconds. The seconds even got a little vanilla ice cream on top. Oh my word was that beyond good!

    Cut the rest into pieces and put them in the freezer for pull out breakfast treats during the week. It’s gonna be a delicious week! Reply

    Hi Natasha,
    Since you asked for ideas, I could imagine this very same cake with an additional layer of caramelized peaches on the top, so it would have to be made upside down. I made something similar here with plums and pecans (if you want to check it out):
