Ingredients

For the Filling:

  • 3 large peaches or 2 cans Freestone peaches, drained and sliced
  • 4 tbsp butter
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch

For the Cake Batter:

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 5 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups butter, softened
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp almond extract

Instructions

Step 1: Prepare the Peach Filling

  1. Cook Peaches: In a large skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the sliced peaches, brown sugar, and white sugar. Cook until the peaches are tender and the sugars have dissolved, about 5-7 minutes.
  2. Add Spices and Thicken: Stir in the vanilla extract, cinnamon, nutmeg, and orange juice. Sprinkle the cornstarch over the mixture and stir until well combined. Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes, or until the mixture has thickened. Remove from heat and let it cool.

Step 2: Prepare the Cake Batter

  1. Preheat Oven: Preheat your oven to 325°F (165°C). Grease and flour a Bundt pan or tube pan.
  2. Cream Butter and Sugar: In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 3-4 minutes.
  3. Add Eggs and Extracts: Beat in the eggs one at a time, ensuring each egg is fully incorporated before adding the next. Stir in the vanilla and almond extracts.
  4. Combine Dry Ingredients: In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, and baking powder.
  5. Mix Dry and Wet Ingredients: Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture, alternating with the whole milk. Begin and end with the dry ingredients. Mix until just combined.

Step 3: Assemble the Pound Cake

  1. Layer Batter and Filling: Pour half of the cake batter into the prepared pan. Spoon half of the peach filling over the batter. Pour the remaining batter over the peach filling, and then top with the remaining peach filling.
  2. Swirl the Filling: Use a knife or skewer to gently swirl the peach filling through the batter to create a marbled effect.

Step 4: Bake the Pound Cake

  1. Bake: Bake in the preheated oven for 70-80 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  2. Cool: Remove the cake from the oven and allow it to cool in the pan for 10-15 minutes. Then, transfer the cake to a wire rack to cool completely.

Step 5: Serve

  1. Serve and Enjoy: Once the cake is completely cool, transfer it to a serving platter. Slice and serve. Enjoy your Peach Cobbler Pound Cake!

Cooking Notes and Tips

  • Peaches: Fresh peaches are ideal, but if using canned peaches, make sure to drain them well to avoid excess moisture.
  • Spices: Adjust the amount of cinnamon and nutmeg to suit your taste preferences.
  • Swirling: Gently swirl the peach filling to create a marbled effect without mixing it completely into the batter.
