Use fresh peaches to add on top of your pound cake, making a Peach Cobbler Pound Cake. This cake is incredibly moist and topped with a sweet and tart peach cobbler topping that gives a delicious peach flavor through each bite of the cake.
As some of you know, I am not a cake decorator. Although, I marvel at beautiful cakes and the time to make such wonderful masterpieces. But it’s never been my thing. I don’t have the patience and don’t know where I would begin. This is why I typically stick with bundt cakes. If you pick a pretty bundt pan, the work is pretty much done for you. Not to mention, everything baked in a bundt pan comes out pretty. I mean, look at this Peach Cobbler Pound Cake, for instance. Isn’t it gorgeous!
I have made versions of this pound cake in the past. I am no stranger to the beauty of this cake. What I love about this cake recipe is how as the cake bakes, the peach flavors permeate throughout the cake giving the delicious flavor of peach cobbler.
Then, it is topped with a simple cake glaze made with powdered sugar, melted butter, and a little vanilla extract! This is a great cake recipe for summer desserts, holiday dinners, and special occasions.
Tips for making moist pound cakes
When I first started baking pound cakes, they would always come out burnt on the outside but soft on the inside. Believe me; it took me several tries to get pound cakes right. Here are a few tips to keep in mind when making this cake:
- Pound cakes take some time to bake, so don’t rush the process. Bake pound cakes anywhere between 45-60 minutes on low heat will result in a great moist and delicious pound cake.
- Use room temperature ingredients when possible. Using room temperature ingredients will make for a moist cake and rise appropriately.
- Don’t over-mix the ingredients. When adding your ingredients to the cake, mix well enough until the ingredients are added into the mixture. If you overmix the batter, the gluten in the flour can become stiff and dry the cake.
- Carefully measure the ingredients. This is important because if you add too much flour, the cake will come out dry, and if you add too much sugar, the cake will come out flat.
