Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Butter a 10 inch tube pan and coat with white sugar.

    Advertisement
  • 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, 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. Spread evenly into the prepared pan.

  • 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.

Partner Tip

Reynolds® Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

Half of this recipe was just perfect in an 8x4" loaf pan. I lowered the heat to 325 degrees after some reviewers indicated they had trouble getting the cake to bake through without overbaking the exterior. It was perfect, then, at 325 for about 60 minutes. I made this exactly as written, in spite of reviewer suggestions to add this or that. I didn't want to take away from the buttery, peachy taste--it was delicious. The sugar crust is a nice touch and I'm glad I included that too. I used frozen peaches, thawed and drained, and drizzled the baked loaf with a glaze of powdered sugar and the drained peach juice. Very pretty, moist cake, with a just right taste and speckle of peaches. Read More

followed the directions to a T and it came out really good. baked in a bundt pan and it's moist and tasty. wish that the crust was a little firmer. i would have given this 4 stars but it needs some sort of creamy topping on it to be absolutely delish! Read More

Good recipe! I added a carmel glaze that made it even more delicious: 1/2 c. butter - 1/2 c. packed brown sugar - 2 tsp. milk - Heat all ingred. in saucepan, stir occasionally. Boil 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Spoon over warm cake. I will use this recipe for a pineapple pound cake next, using drained canned pineapple. Thanks! Read More

Oh my I may be a Northern girl but I felt like I was back in the Old South sitting on someone's porch having a slice of this pound cake with a tall glass of Sweet Tea! Yes it's that good! I cut the recipe in half kept the amount of vanilla the same and used a little over a cup of peaches. I baked it in an 8x4 glass baking dish and topped it with a generous amount of turbinado sugar. I put in the oven at 325 for exactly one hour. It was so incredibly moist delicious and bursting with peaches. I topped the cake slices with fresh cut peaches and homemade whipped cream. The cake basically disappeared but this is definitely a recipe I'd love to make again! Read More

A perfect way to use ripe peaches! The sugar coating on the pan gave a nice crunch to the outside of the cake. I used a bundt pan and baked it about 1 hr 20 min, and had no trouble getting the cake out of the pan after letting it cool for about 15 minutes. As with any pound cake, it is important to follow the directions and beat, beat, beat the batter after each addition (except the peaches, of course). Using a stand mixer works well for the beating. I added some nutmeg and cinnamon to the batter with the vanilla, and I think that helped bring out the flavor of the peaches. I also dusted it with 10X sugar after it cooled. The cake is delicious, especially when served with dark chocolate sauce. Read More

This was a really good recipe. I did alter it a bit. I added 1.4 tsp. of almond extract and then 1/4 tsp. each of cinnamon nutmeg and 1/8 tsp. ginger and ground cloves. After the cake had cooled a bit I poked holes in it with a toothpick and made a glaze of the syrup from a can of peaches and powdered sugar and then dusted it with powdered sugar just before serving. This was a very nice change. I will definitely make this again. Read More

Perfect cake for Spring or Summer. I live in GA so I used fresh ripe sweet GA peaches. Took this cake to a mother's meeting and it was gobbled up. HELPFUL HINT: To ripen the peaches more quickly put them in a brown paper bag. Close the top of the bag and poke holes in it. Also you can put an apple in there to speed the process as well.

Great pound cake! Very easy to make. I greased and floured the pan instead of using butter and sugar to coat. Came out just fine! Thanks for the recipe! Read More

This cake is excellent!! I love buttery homemade pound cake. This cake has a lot of flavor. The peaches added to the taste of the cake. Fresh peaches are out of season where I live so I had to use can peaches. This did not make a difference in how good the cake turned out. I brought it to work and it went fast. Read More
