  3. Baking Powder: Ensure freshness with 2 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder.
  4. Topping: Craft a sweet liquid with whole milk, unsalted butter, and granulated sugar for a moist and flavorful touch.
  5. Crumble: Enhance each bite with sweetness and crunch using a simple crumble, though the cake is still divine without it.

Can Fresh Peaches Replace Canned Peaches?

Absolutely! Both canned and fresh peaches bring a delightful flavor, with canned peaches adding a touch more moisture. If using fresh peaches, dice approximately 2 1/2 peaches (no need to peel) and reduce baking time to 60 minutes.

Adapting to Different Pans

Flexibility is key! If a 7-inch springform pan isn’t available, an 8×8-inch or 9×9-inch baking dish works well, though the cake will be slightly shorter. Adjust baking times accordingly. For a 9×13-inch dish, double the recipe, lining with parchment paper, and monitor baking times closely.

Storing Peach Cake with Care

Preserve the freshness of your peach cake by allowing it to cool completely before wrapping it in plastic wrap and aluminum foil. For short-term storage (1-2 days), room temperature suffices. For longer durations (3-4 days), refrigerate, ensuring proper wrapping to prevent drying.

Freezing Peach Cake for Future Bliss

Yes, you can freeze this peachy delight! Skip the crumble topping for freezing. Follow these steps:

  1. Let the cake cool completely.
  2. Wrap it tightly in plastic wrap, followed by a layer of aluminum foil.
  3. Label and date the packaging.
  4. Freeze for up to 2-3 months.
  5. Thaw in the refrigerator overnight before savoring.
