Ingredients

  • 3 peaches
  • 1 ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 large eggs
  • ¾ cup buttermilk see note for recipe
  • ½ cup unsalted butter melted and cooled
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350° Fahrenheita. Line 8 or 9" round pan with parchment paper. Tip below in notes.
  • Slice all peaches in half. Remove pits. Chop one peach into chunks. Slice the remaining two peaches. The slices should not be thicker than ¼".
  • In a medium mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  • In another mixing bowl, whisk together buttermilk, melted butter, eggs and vanilla.
  • Add dry ingredients to buttermilk mixture and stir in gently.
  • Add peach chunks to cake batter and gently fold in.
  • Pour the batter into prepared pan. Smooth the top with a spatula or a spoon.
  • Arrange peach slices on top. Sprinkle a tablespoons or two of sugar over the top of the cake.
  • Place cake on the middle rack in the oven and bake for 35 to 40 minutes.
  • Check if the cake is done by inserting a toothpick or a dry spaghetti noodle in a few places of the cake. If it comes out clean, the cake is done. If there are crumbs on the toothpick, place it back in the oven for 3 to 5 minutes.
  • Once done, remove cake from oven and let cool completely.
  • Dust the cake with powdered sugar before serving.

Notes

  • You may have leftover peach slices. It will depend on the size of your peaches. Don't crowd the top of the cake trying to fit them all in.
  • Store leftover cake on the counter for up to 2 days and in the fridge for up to 5 days.
  • Lining the cake pan with parchment paper ensures that the cake won't stick to it. It's a moist cake so this step is helpful.
  • To properly measure out the flour, fluff it in the container first, then scoop it into the measuring cup. Level off the top and use it in the recipe.
