There’s still time left to enjoy fresh picked peaches!
Fresh. Local. Peaches!
And when when you bite into this divine Peach Bundt Cake with Amaretto Cream Glaze drizzled on top, you’ll enjoy that fresh summer flavor! Garnished with beautiful red raspberries and dappled inside with chunks of ripe peaches picked right at their peak of freshness, this is a spectacular cake to serve your family and friends.
Even though there is nothing quite like biting into a warm peach on the porch along with a cold glass of iced tea, this cake epitomizes the delicateness of sweet peaches! It doesn’t yell “super-sweet” of a frosted layer cake, or scream of “heavy” as does a dense chocolate cake from which thin slices are in order (although I’d never pass up chocolate!). This peach cake is simply one of ‘subtle’ perfection in texture, flavor, and peach-y summer sweetness.
I enhanced an everyday cake glaze with Amaretto liquor and fresh peach juice and did the same to the cake batter . . . definitively worth it! After each bite of this cake, you experience an incredible lingering flavor of peach, cream and almond. Just heavenly!
You will smile! And you will hum “Mmmmm!”
So before you devour all of those fresh peaches with juice dripping down and sticking to your chins, save some peaches to make this cake!
Do it now, before it’s too late when peaches with their sweet aroma disappear along with the twinkling evening lightning bugs until another warm summer’s arrival.
