Peach almond cake

Author Notes

Peach almond cake. A delicious cake studded with juicy peaches.
Fresh peaches and almonds together in a delicate cake whose sweetness is subtle enough to lose yourself in every single bite. 50 minutes in the oven gives them time to soften and gently sink into the surrounding cake batter. It’s slightly nutty, because for the best result, we blend the shaved almonds to leave some little crunchy chunks. While the cake batter can be made with almost any stone fruit, there’s something particularly satisfying about this cake when it’s paired with peaches. Preparing a cake with peaches is a delight itself.
It’s a simple cake and super easy to make (but those are the best!). You don’t need fancy ingredients, just one bowl and fresh peaches.
If you haven’t made a peach cake yet, you should give this one a try! —Anna | Serving Dumplings
