Peach Cake Recipe With Blueberries
Are you looking for a light and simple bundt cake to make with sweet summer peaches, try a homemade peach cake recipe with blueberries and top it with a peach glaze. A welcome addition for a weekend brunch or as a show stopper dessert that you’ll make over and over again.
I haven’t been making many heavy desserts lately, all I really crave in the summer is fruit. With both girls home for a couple of weeks, I thought I’ld see how they liked this easy peach cake recipe with blueberries which has become one of my favorite summer time desserts. The sweetness comes mostly from fresh juicy peaches without a lot of added sugar.
It’s unbelievably easy, taking only about twenty minutes to prep, and it comes out of the pan perfectly every time. It’s one of those recipes you can count on.
While I generally serve it for dessert, it’s equally fabulous served as a coffee cake for breakfast or brunch. While most coffee cakes have a streusel topping, I think of them as cakes that are not overly sweet and don’t need frosting. Of course it needs to taste good with coffee or in my case tea and this one fits the bill.
It meets all the criteria for a delicious treat to bring for a breakfast meeting. However, add a dollop of whipped cream and it makes a scrumptious dessert.
Fresh peaches and blueberries from the farmers market or from your favorite fruit stand are the best, but it’s still wonderful with frozen fruit.
