Ingredients

  • 1 cup unsalted butter 226 grams, room temperature (2 sticks)
  • 1⅛ cup granulated sugar 225 grams, divided
  • 4 large eggs 200 grams, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract 4 grams
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour 240 grams
  • 1 cup chopped fresh peaches 170 grams, from about 2 peaches

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease a 9x5-inch loaf pan with nonstick spray. Set aside.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the butter and 1 cup of sugar together until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes on medium speed.
    1 cup unsalted butter, 1⅛ cup granulated sugar
  • Add the eggs, one at a time, allowing them to fully incorporate before adding the next one.
    4 large eggs
  • Add the vanilla extract and mix to combine.
    1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • With the mixer on low speed, slowly add in the flour. Mix just until the flour is incorporated-- you don’t want to over mix.
    2 cups all-purpose flour
  • Gently fold the peach chunks into the batter.
    1 cup chopped fresh peaches
  • Transfer the batter to the prepared loaf pan and top it with the remaining 2 tablespoons of sugar.
  • Bake the pound cake for 55-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • Allow the cake to cool in the pan for 5 minutes. Then, run a knife around the edge and turn it out onto a wire rack to cool completely.

Notes

  • Make sure to carefully fold the pieces of peaches into the batter to enjoy fresh chunks when biting into your pound cake.
  • You can add a glaze to your pound cake if you’d like by combining milk with powdered sugar.
  • Add slices of peaches to the top of your pound cake for even more flavor.
Storage: Store peach pound cake in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
