I haven’t been able to participate in the Love Bloghop cause I’ve had quite a busy summer. My little baby boy is growing like a weed and taking up a lot of my time AND my dad came for a visit! He was here for 5 weeks and we traveled all over Southern Europe! It was a blast! Now, I’m back to my everyday routine and can get into baking again and being a part of the Bloghop! YAY!
The theme for this months’ Bloghop is Peachlove! PERFECT, cause peaches are in season and are one of my favorite fruits! This week I picked up a big basket of juicy ripe peaches and today I set off to put together a recipe that would be perfect to share with you.
So… I also have another confession. I’ve never successfully made a bundt. I got a new bundt pan a couple months ago on my trip to Poland, made a bundt (overfilled it with batter) and completely failed with it. *sigh* So, I learned my lesson (don’t overfill the pan!) and I’m trying again with this bundt!
I took recipes from Week of Menus and Sweetpea’s Kitchen, put them together and added my own personal spin with the peach glaze on top. The cake is moist, full of peachy goodness and the glaze on top adds just the right amount of sweetness.
I’m thinking the bundt would be a perfect summer bbq dessert, or for your Sunday brunch or even just for breakfast! YUM! Hurry, go grab some peaches while they’re ripe and in season and whip up a bundt for your friends and family!

- Dice the peaches and place in a medium bowl. Toss with sugar, vanilla and cinnamon. Set aside until ready to use.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, sugars, cinnamon and nutmeg.
- Using a fork, press the cold butter into the mixture until it’s the consistency of a course meal.

- Scoop batter on top of the peaches and crumble and smooth out using an offset spatula. Make sure you leave about 1 inch of room from the top of the bundt pan.
- Bake for 60-80 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
- Allow to cool for ONLY 5 minutes in pan before removing a a plate/rack to cool.
