This simple and easy peach bundt cake is one of the best ways to use up summer peaches. It’s a delicious vanilla-scented cake that is packed with fresh chopped yellow peaches. It’s great served naked or with cream cheese icing, powdered sugar, or even freshly whipped cream.
This simple peach bundt cake is the best addition to your summer dessert menu.
It’s made with chopped sweet yellow peaches and flavored slightly with vanilla.
It was only time that I decided to make a peach bundt cake!
This cake is simple to make and really lets the fresh fruit flavor shine through.
Trust me, if you’re a peach lover you’re going to LOVE this sweet and simple cake.
What is a bundt cake?
A bundt cake is any cake baked in a bundt pan.
If you’re wondering what a bundt pan is it’s a shaped cake pan reminiscent of a donut shape.
Bundt cakes are named for the shape not the flavor so that means bundt cakes can come in all different flavors.
What type of peaches work best for this cake?
I used yellow peaches for this bundt cake but white peaches will work just as well.
The difference between the two is subtle but yellow peaches tend to have a little more acid and they are a bit more tart. They will sweeten as they ripen.
White peaches are less acidic, smell a bit more floral, and are sweet even while still on the firmer side.
Can I top this peach bundt cake?
I opted to keep this cake plain because I really wanted the fresh peach flavor to shine through the cake.
However, if you’re looking to add a little sweetness here are a few options:
- Freshly whipped cream
- I would add a little vanilla extract or vanilla bean paste to pump up the flavor. To add sweetness you can add powdered sugar to the whipped cream.
- Powdered sugar
- It’s a simple topping but really works well for bundt cakes. If you have tried my cream sherry bundt cake you’ll know that’s what I top that bundt cake with.
- Cream cheese icing
- If you’re a fan of a traditional thick and creamy cream cheese icing use the recipe from my butterscotch pumpkin bundt cake. It’s so delicious and flavored with vanilla bean paste.
How do I store leftover bundt cake?
If you have any leftover bundt cake you’ll want to keep it covered for up to 3 days. I keep mine in the refrigerator as it helps with any molding if your home gets warm.
If left unfrosted you can freeze the cake for up to 3 months. To freeze I wrap in a few layers of plastic wrap and foil.
