Peach cake made with fresh peaches and cinnamon and topped with the most perfect brown sugar frosting! This peach cake is a wonderful way to enjoy the season’s best!
Peaches remind me of vacation. I remember a few years ago me and my family took a short trip to Michigan. Our last night there, we stopped at a local farm stand and bought bags of nectarines, cherries, plums and peaches. When we got home we ran to the kitchen, rinsed our fruit and promptly began feasting. Our wrists and arms were speckled with fruit juice. Peels and pits littered the table as we gorged ourselves on plump, fresh fruit. I will never forget how wonderful all those bags of fresh fruit tasted.
The following summer we took a trip to South Carolina. We decided to take a break from the beach and go for a little day trip. We stopped along the country roads to patronize a family farm with fresh peaches. After our Michigan trip, we knew that these farm stands yield the sweetest treats. This little stand did not disappoint. Our brown bag was busting with fragrantly ripe, juicy peaches! Being the impatient bunch that we are, we dug right in.
You haven’t lived until you’ve had fresh peach juice dribbling down your chin. Those peaches were so incredibly fresh and delicious. They practically ruined peaches for us! We feared that no other peach could possibly compare to those fuzzy sweet road side treats.
This time of year I cannot resist buying farm fresh peaches as often as possible. They are so succulent and tender. Usually we just eat them plain. This year, I couldn’t resist baking with peaches just once. Peach cake is the perfect dessert to showcase the season’s best fruit!
I used only the freshest peaches for this cake that I found at my local Walmart. I then tossed those peaches into this cinnamon laded cake. The aroma reminds you a bit of fall with the blend of cinnamon and brown sugar, but the flavor is all peach! I made a very simple brown sugar frosting to spead over this caramel colored cake. The peach cake almost has a crust on top, but one bite reveals the tender cake underneath.
Peaches will always hold a special place in my heart. They will always make me think of those times we strayed off the beaten path. Now they will always make me think of this peach cake!
