Spicey Peach Cake

Jessica Hannan


I wanted cake, and peaches, and my husband said no more pudding
I really like the sweet tart of the peaches, and the gentle heat of the spices.
My friend Marcel and I agree that I need to come up with a peach preserve and brandy/rum sauce to pour over the top.

The cake reminded me of the spice cakes I loved as a kid. My kitchen smelled amazing as this baked. The peaches, which end up on top, are so tasty thanks to the spices they're tossed in.

I'd recommend placing your springform pan on a sheet pan to avoid any messes in your oven. The Test Kitchen
