Pound Cake Batter 

  • All-purpose unb leached flour: Holds our cake up. Use unbleached to help keep the cake’s crumb tender and moist. 
  • Sugar: Makes everything sweet and helps the cake get that awesome golden color.
  • Unsalted butter: Brings in the richness and keeps the cake moist. Plus, we get to control how salty the cake gets.
  • Cream cheese: Adds a little tang and makes the cake super creamy. It’s like the best friend to our peaches.
  • Large eggs: These guys hold everything together and make the cake fluffy.
  • Vanilla extract: A dash improves all the flavors and brings out the natural sweetness of the peaches. A little goes a long way.
  • Ripe peaches: Juicy, sweet, and make every bite feel like summer. Fresh works best, but you can use canned peaches if you’re stuck – just drain well. 
  • Salt: A little pinch helps wake up the other flavors. 

Topping

  • Peach slices: They’re like little slices of sunshine on top of the cake.
  • Brown sugar: Brings in that caramelly sweetness and sticks to the peaches like a cozy blanket.
  • Butter: Melted and mixed in, butter helps the brown sugar stick to the peaches and gives the topping a rich, glossy look.

Expert Peach Cobbler Pound Cake Recipe Tips

For best results, follow these expert tips – and this delicious dessert will be perfect every time.

  • Skip the Almond: Some folks add almond extract, but I find it too overpowering. Let the peach flavor shine!
  • Room Temp Rules: Room temperature butter, cream cheese, and eggs blend way smoother. Your batter will thank you.
  • Sift Well: Sift your flour mixture. I know I say this over and over, but it really does make a difference!
  • Watchful Eye: Keep an eye on your cake while it’s baking. This cake isn’t a set-and-forget deal.
  • Cool It: Let the cake cool completely before inverting it onto your favorite plate!
  • Sweet Perfection: This recipe needs sweet peaches – so, aim to make this beauty during peak peach season.

The Right Pan Makes All the Difference

We’re making this cake in a bundt cake pan, which is my go-to for pound cakes. If you don’t have one, I highly recommend Wilton bundt pans. They’re affordable, top-quality, and non-stick.

How to Serve

When it comes to serving this Peach Cobbler Pound Cake, you’ve got a lot of choices! 

You can go all out with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on the side for that extra yum factor. Or, how about a dollop of fresh whipped cream? You could even keep it simple with a sprinkle of powdered sugar. 

If you’re feeling really fancy, a drizzle of caramel sauce makes for a real showstopper. Your cake, your rules!

How to Store

Got leftovers? No worries, here’s how to keep your peach dessert tasting fresh:

  • Next-Day Plan: If you’re not serving your cake until the next day, just leave it in the bundt pan. Cover it tightly with plastic wrap and pop it into the fridge. About two hours before serving, take it out to let it come to room temp.
  • Airtight Magic: For longer storage, you can also place slices in an airtight container. This will keep your cake moist and delicious for up to a week in the fridge. Just be sure to let it sit at room temperature for a bit before diving in. Trust me, it’s worth the wait!

FAQs

Here are some questions people have asked me:

What kind of flour should I use?

I use regular all-purpose unbleached flour. I always sift my dry ingredients, and I’ve never had a problem.

Many pound cake recipes call for cake flour – that already contains baking powder. There’s no need to use this self-raising flour in our recipe. 

How do I make a peach cobbler pound cake recipe from scratch?

Just bake along with our recipe! Be sure to sift the flour, blend the butter, sugar, and cream cheese together really well, using either an electric mixer (hand mixer) or a stand mixer.

How do I make a moist pound cake?

Want a moist pound cake that melts in your mouth? Start by using fresh, room-temperature ingredients.

Remember to sift your dry ingredients and mix them just until they’re combined; overmixing is a moisture killer. 

Finally, let the cake cool in its pan to seal in that delicious moisture, and store it properly in an airtight container.

Notes

Make sure you let the cake cool completely before inverting the pan. If you don't plan to serve the cake until the next day, I wrap the top in aluminum foil and place it in the fridge. When you bring it out, let it get to room temperature before inverting and enjoy. And don't forget the caramel sauce!
