Early each summer when fresh blueberries are plumb and ripe, I make Blueberry Buckle. At the end of each summer when the peaches are fragrant and juicy, I make Peach Buckle. This cake is buttery, moist, and delicious. It tastes like sweet summer sunshine. I hope you’ll give it a try.
- 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 1 cup granulated white sugar
- 2 large eggs, room temperature
- 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 3 large, ripe peaches, peeled, pitted, and cut into bite-size pieces (about 2 cups)
- 1 tablespoon coconut sugar (or brown sugar)
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- Preheat oven to 350° F. Prepare a 9-inch springform pan by lining the bottom with parchment paper and spraying the paper and side wall with baking spray. Set aside.
- In a small bowl, add flour, baking powder, and salt. Stir to combine. Set aside.
- In a medium sized bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until sugar is melted and mixture is smooth. Add the eggs, one at a time, and beat until fully incorporated. Add vanilla and mix it in well. Batter will be stiff. Stir in the peaches until they’re mostly coated with the batter. Use a rubber spatula to transfer the batter to the pan, making sure to get every last drop of batter. Spread batter evenly in pan.
- In a small bowl, combine the coconut sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle evenly over the top of the batter.
- Bake for 50-55 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Let the cake cool in the pan for at least 15 minutes, then run a sharp knife around the side wall before opening the spring and removing side wall. Enjoy this cake on its own or with softly whipped cream. It’s also great with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
