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. And thanks to the addition of ground almonds, the cake stays fresh for a couple of days, is soft and moist.
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. Perfect summer bake.
If you haven’t made a peach cake yet, you should give this one a try!
