Peach Bundt Cake with Amaretto Cream Glaze

bespeech

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.

Peach Bundt Cake with Amaretto Cream Glaze

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.

And then pull up a rocking chair on your porch, pour yourself a cold glass of ice tea, enjoy this peach of a cake, and let the sultry days of August gently drift by.

    Wow. Just wow. I made a Peach Crumble last week and this pretty much blows that out of the park. I want it! I have everything except the Amaretto. Do you think it could be omitted or substituted, or is it worth a trip to the liquor store?

      Hi Mindy, you are too kind! Your comment is so complimentary, and I thank you. Well, if you can’t get to the liqour store, than just add some extra almond extract to compensate for the Amaretto. Go slowly with that almond extract because it can be very strong. Totally up to you, but we love the Italian twist to this. Hope you enjoy, my husband is eating it straight off the platter and foregoing a plate of his own!

      xoxo,

    PS…I’m thrilled you signed up for Sunday Supper. Isabel usually assigns someone as a mentor…I’m happy to be yours! It’s a bit confusing when you start…there’s an early deadline a few days before to list the name of your recipe, certain things that need to be in your post, etc. You’ll have it figured out in no time :)
