This fresh peach cake recipe is loaded with a pound of sweet summer peaches. It comes together quickly and is perfect for unexpected company! This also makes for a great morning or coffee cake because it’s lightly sweet and every bite just melts in your mouth.

This peach cake always disappears fast! The last time I baked it, I served a slice to my cute 4-year old nephew who is a “selective eater” and I laughed when he dove right in, face planting right into his slice – who needs a fork?! It was the funniest sight and pretty obvious he loved it!

This peach cake has a soft and moist crumb with a hint of lemon and every bite is bursting with fresh peach flavor. This is an easy, excellent cake you will make again and again! Watch the how-to video to see just how easy it is!

Notes

*To measure flour correctly, spoon it into a measuring cup and level off the top. If you simply push your measuring cup into the flour bin, you can get 25%+ excess in your cup.

    I love all of your recipes Natasha! I was wondering if I could use canned peaches because my family wa ya me to try and make this for Thanksgiving celebration in addition to the normal pumpkin and apple pie’s we make. Thank you, Pattie Reply

      Hi Patricia, I think this could work well with well-drained canned peaches. 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

      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 Natasha! You are amazing πŸ™‚
    Would it be the same recipe if I substituted peaches for raspberries ? 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

      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

    Hi Natasha, thank you so much for your awesome site, love every single detail!!! May I ask if you ever tried this recipe with mangoes by any chance? What do you think? Would it work? Thank you for the answer in advance!!! Reply

    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

      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

        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!
