Baking cakes is something I love, but baking cakes with fresh seasonal fruits is even better. Summer fruits especially peaches are one my absolute favorite fruits to incorporate into homemade cakes. The delicate flavor of this fruit goes hand in hand with the simple ingredients used in my favorite basic cake batter.
Of course, peaches add a serious wow factor to this easy peach cake recipe. I really want to emphasize the beauty of summer peaches. So in this case, the idea is more is better.

Basically, this cake all about simplicity. You don’t need to think about add-ons like icing. And that one feature makes this cake so perfect for your afternoon tea or light snack. To me, it’s a simple cake adorned with peaches, and totally yum.
To start with, sift all the dry ingredients into a small bowl. The dry ingredients include a few pantry staples like flour, baking powder and a touch of salt. As you know, these are the necessary ingredients in any cake recipe.
Next, combine all the other ingredients in another bowl. Cream together butter and sugar followed by incorporating eggs into the mixture one at a time. Make sure the eggs are well combined but avoid over beating. Remember over beating the batter will make the cake very dense and heavy. “Just combined” is the keyword here.
A dash of vanilla extract and a pinch of lemon zest work wonders in this easy peach cake recipe. Finally, add in the flour mixture in batches, and beat until just combined. At this stage, the batter will be super thick which is totally fine. The liquid content in the chopped peaches will make the cake really moist.
To make this easy peach cake extra fancy, sprinkle some confectioner’s sugar or icing sugar on top of the cake. It’s addicting and delicious. Plus, the fresh aroma of this cake is totally mesmerizing.
