You may be wondering why we decided to make last summer's winning Simple Summer Peach Cake by Savour for this week's video -- for one thing, it's a darn good cake. But even better, as part of our exciting summer partnership with Whole Foods Market, this is one of 4 recipes that will be featured both on Whole Foods' website and on recipe cards in stores nationwide!
In revisiting this recipe, we were reminded how terrific this cake is, and also stumbled on a few happy accidents. For one, we learned that, in this recipe, nectarines are a perfect early summer substitute for peaches. And after Amanda inadvertently dumped a lot (a LOT) of turbinado sugar on the nectarine-studded batter, we discovered it made for a wonderfully crunchy, caramelized crust. Two splendid variations!
Big thanks to Elena Parker for shooting and editing this video, which will also be featured on Whole Foods' website!
