Peach Cake Recipe
This cake can be made with fresh ripe peaches or pears.


  • 4 eggs
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups sliced fresh or frozen peaches
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans, optional
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • powdered sugar


Preheat oven to 350°. Beat eggs well; add 2 cups sugar and the oil, beating until well blended. Combine flour, salt, and baking powder; beat into egg and oil mixture alternating with orange juice. Blend in the vanilla extract. In a separate bowl, toss the sliced peaches (and pecans, if using) with 1/4 cup sugar and the cinnamon. Pour about one-third of the batter into a greased, and floured tube pan. Layer one-half peach mixture over it. Cover with another one-third of batter and the remaining peach mixture. Spread remaining batter over the last layer. Bake at 350° for 60 minutes, or until a wooden pick or cake tester inserted in center comes out clean. Cool cake 10 minutes in pan; turn out onto a wire rack. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.

Instead of cinnamon, I add ginger (1/4 tsp)and instead of only orange juice, I use the zest of 2 oranges. I am thinking about using sour cream and/or Cointreau, (as a soak?) next time. I am also thinking about making an orange cream cheese frosting.
