Summery Peach Loaf Cake with Cinnamon Streusel Topping


We all really like peaches here, some more than others, but we all are hooked on this cake!




This is a scrumptious summer dessert starring fresh peaches!

Peaches have been “iffy” here this summer.  Most of them not ripe, and when they do ripen up, they’re rotten.  Thankfully, our favorite farmers’ market had a huge supply of Michigan peaches.  They looked near perfect ~ I couldn’t resist them ~  fragrant, ripe and drip-down-your-chin juicy.  Just what this cake called for!





The simple streusel topping is spiced with fragrant cinnamon and cardamom.  It’s equally good for breakfast, brunch, a snack or dessert.  Finish it off with a scoop of ice cream or a swirl of whipped cream, or just eat it plain, like we do.

It’s a moist cake filled with little chunks of sweet peaches!


Enjoy!

  4. i love this fruit (peach) in all its forms: raw, canned, as gem, in baked goods.
    Your moist and fragrant cake with pieces of fresh, ripe peaches - looks the perfect company to an aromatic cup of coffee or tea.

  10. Oh I am also a big peaches fan so this cake looks awesome. Peaches here have been OK but I by a bigger box and I am alone...so great recipe if I fear loosing some. I have not found a decent nectarine in years though.

    1. Hi Evelyne! Peaches and cantaloupes both have not been real good here this year. And I agree with the nectarines, hardly even see them. Take care

  13. We've been pretty lucky with peaches this year. And when they've been less-than-ideal, I've been roasting them, so that's a winner too. Anyway, LOVE this! Peaches work so well in baked goods and sweet dishes. Thanks!

    1. Thanks, Gerlinde! It seems like every summer there's something going on with one fruit or another. Tomatoes and watermelon good here, cantaloupe, and peaches, not so much.

  16. Pam, I'd never had a peach cake until yesterday! We cheated and didn't make it ourselves, rather bought it at Fresh Market. I'm sure that your version has a bit more pop flavorwise! Take Care, Dave

  22. Dear Pam, I love peaches! We had two peach trees in the yard when I was a girl growing up. My mom used to send me to get the peaches before they fell. She made the best desserts with them. This sounds wonderful. Take care my friend. xo Catheirne
