This light and fresh bundt cake recipe is full of sweet peaches and topped with a honey, lavender glaze. It’s one of those perfect dessert recipes for the warm weather season!
There’s no season quite like peach season! Summer is my favorite season for a lot of different reasons, but I get most excited for crates and crates of fresh peaches! I love baking peach cobblers, peach pies, or roasting a few fresh peaches right on the grill. (If you have never eaten fresh, roasted peaches, then you are seriously missing out!) Peaches are a fantastic summer fruit that add the perfect sweet flavor to any dessert recipe. I’ve added peaches to tarts, pies, ice cream, and tons of recipes over the years, but this bundt cake recipe beats them all! This stunning Peach Bundt Cake recipe by BFFF’s contributor, Lauren from Going For Grace is a peach lover’s paradise! The cake itself is topped with a sweet, honey and lavender glaze for the perfect summer dessert flavors!
Bundt Cake Recipes
A bundt cake is really just a tasty cake prepared in a bundt pan. The bundt pan allows the cake to bake into the signature bundt cake circle or ring. Bundt cakes are one of my guilty pleasures to both eat and bake. Here’s the cool thing: bundt cake recipes allow you to be as creative or as simple as you like. You can play with flavors and ingredients, glazes and frostings, or simply bake your bundt cake and serve fresh from the bundt pan! How can you not love an easy recipe like that? Plus the height of a bundt cake, means you can pack even more ingredients and flavors into your recipe, compared to a normal cake. This Peach Bundt Cake with a Honey, Lavender Glaze is the perfect example! Every bite is filled with fresh peach flavor! Once you make it, you’ll be craving piece after piece!
How To Make Bundt Cake Recipes
Believe it or not, this peach bundt cake recipe is ridiculously easy! The trick to really nailing the recipe is to carefully add your ingredients as the recipe states. I know, I know, it’s so easy to ignore dessert recipes when they say to slowly combine ingredients or add one thing at time. We’re definitely all guilty of breezing past those lines and throwing everything into one big bowl at the same time… Show of hands anyone? ;) Those steps are massively crucial to this bundt cake recipe though! As you mix your cake batter, don’t forget to add your eggs one at a time. It may seem like a pain, but making sure all of those little egg yolks are properly mixed will make your bundt cake so light and fluffy! The same thing goes when it comes to combining your wet and dry ingredients. Adding the mixtures together piece by piece will keep your bundt cake from being super dense. There’s always so much batter in a bundt cake recipe, that not mixing everything carefully together just leaves you with a ridiculously heavy bundt cake. Trust me- that’s definitely not the result you’re going for!
Adding Peaches To Your Bundt Cake
After you’ve finished creating your perfect bundt cake batter, you’ll be ready to add in all of those yummy peaches! If you can, definitely buy fresh peaches for this bundt cake recipe. Summer is the peak season for peaches, and truly nothing beats that amazing fresh peach flavor. Peel and dice all of your fresh peaches into whatever size you like. I prefer tiny peach pieces, but you can also cube your peaches for bigger bites of peach throughout your bundt cake. Adding your peaches to the batter itself is actually super tricky though! Fruits can be so temperamental as ingredients in cakes! Since they’re so much heavier than your batter, they like to all fall to the bottom of the pan if you’re not careful. Of course, we want peaches in every single bite, not just lumped in at the bottom! For an even peach spread across your bundt cake, fold your peach pieces in as slowly and carefully as possible. Stop stirring and folding as soon as everything is mixed together. This will keep those perfect peach pieces suspended in your bundt cake batter!
Honey Lavender Bundt Cake Glaze
This bundt cake is delicious by itself, but with the special addition of this honey, lavender glaze it is practically heaven! I love baking with fresh lavender and this glaze makes it easy! This glaze takes literally seconds to create and adds a sweet, light, floral taste to your bundt cake. Just wait until your bundt cake has completely cooled after baking, then top with this amazing glaze! I really recommend placing your bundt cake on a wire rack with parchment underneath before pouring the glaze. This will allow the glaze to drizzle down the sides of your bundt cake for a pretty finish and an easy clean up! For a pretty presentation, I love the idea of topping the cake with a few dried lavender pieces! You could even add some additional lavender sprigs and fresh peach slices around the sides for a fun garnish too!
