I’m so excited to share a new recipe: Peach Cornmeal Poundcake.🍑 It’s a peachy, not-too-sweet cake with a southern twist. When I am South Carolina, I love to cook with local ingredients. The peaches are actually from North Carolina but the cornmeal is from Marsh Hen Mill here in SC. I love getting inspired by ingredients that aren’t local to Phoenix! This poundcake is equally as good for breakfast as it is for dessert. It also freezes well. Just slice, freeze slices individually and store in a freezer bag. When you are ready to eat, reheat at 350ºF. This is an all-around great summer recipe!

    What size loaf pan did you use?

  • Whisked Away Whisked Away on Aug 01, 2021

    8 1/2 x 4 1/2. You can, of course, use a larger size but the cook time would be less. I hope that helps!
