Fresh peaches remind me of summer and our grocery stores have just started displaying all of the different varieties. Since the official start of summer is just days away, I figured it was about time that I started making good use of the abundance of peaches.

Though I usually prefer eating peaches raw or grilled, this cake is one that even I had a hard time stopping at one piece!

Fresh, juicy peaches are tossed with brown sugar and spices to bring out the peaches’ natural sweetness. The cake is more dense than your average cake and almost has the texture of a pastry bread. It has a hint of cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger to heighten the flavors found in the filling.

The cake is topped with a creamy vanilla glaze that brings the cream aspect of the favorite peaches and cream combination.

Since it’s not overly sweet, this cake makes a great addition to brunch along with being a summery dessert. If you don’t want the sweet glaze for breakfast, feel free to leave it off.

However, I strongly recommend that you don’t skip it! The creamy sweetness is a perfect topping to this fresh peach cake.

Grab a slice for breakfast and sneak another slice for dessert!

I love peaches, but I've actually never baked with them before. This looks and sounds amazing...and it looks so fluffy. I'm not the greatest baker, but I will have to give this a try.

I had some peaches I needed to use so I looked for a recipe and ran across this one. My family LOVED it!!!! I even screwed up the recipe and forgot the glaze and it was still amazing. I went and got more peaches and am making it again, and copied the recipe for my mother. Thanks for making this recipe available, a new family favorite!
