Tips For Making A Peach Pound Cake

  • Be sure to start with room temperature butter and eggs.
  • Use frozen peaches instead of fresh if you like.
  • Be sure to beat the butter and the sugar together really well, a good 6 to 8 minutes. Do not rush this part. It is very important to the finished texture.

  1. I can’t wait to make this, but I want to know could I use canned peaches & self rising flour to give the cake more height? If so what would be measurements?

  2. I’m a baker and especially trying new pound cake recipes. With it being Georgia peach time I had to try and was I excited! Perfect, beautiful pound cake; high rising and just the right amount of moistness and sweetness. If I could give it a 5+ I would.

  3. I like to use fresh picked blackberries. Instead of flour on the pan I use sugar. Itt makes a nice crunch crust.

    1. I have used canned peaches, fruit cocktail, berries, small chopped apple, and pineapple. I think mango would work. The firmer the better I think.

    This is the most delicious and easiest pound cake I’ve ever baked! I’m trying this recipe today using fresh strawberries instead of peaches. It looks just as delicious! I am anxiously awaiting to try it!

    1. The strawberry pound cake was a hit also! (I probably love the fresh peach one best, but the fresh strawberry one was a keeper as well!) Both of them went fast!!

  5. The Georgia Peach Pound Cake is very good. Few ingredients needed, not even milk; so I thought it might be dry, but it wasn’t. Easy to whip up. The batter will be very thick. I needed to bake it at least 15 minutes longer, however; and that also helped to brown the top. Not overly sweet. I can see using other fruits…apples, plums, apricots, etc…

    I just made this today. It is really good BUT doesn’t rise like a typical pound cake. Was wondering if I did something wrong. The flavor and texture are great, but it’s almost the height of a layer. Just a little higher than that.

  7. AWESOME RECIPE! Great details in directions! So simple! So good! Perfect peach pound cake. I used fresh Georgia peaches this time. Can’t wait to make it again! Thank you for this lovely cake!

  8. I made this and added bourbon, ground cloves, nutmeg, and cinnamon. It’s absolutely amazing. Thank you for sharing!

    Looking to make your Lemon PoundCake with Cream Cheese Frosting but do not see cream cheese listed as an ingredient in the frosting portion of the recipe. Will you please let me know if or what the correction may be? Wish to make it in a couple of days. Thank you.

      1. I make a peach cream cheese icing!! It is the perfect finishing touch that tips the scale to the most amazing cake I have ever baked.
