Pound Cake. Peaches. Cherries. Yum.

Hi friends! I know, I know. It’s been a while. When will I get the hang of this blogging thing? Don’t you worry, though. I have tons of content that I’d love to share with you all. Perhaps I’ll do a picture-only post in the near future showcasing my latest domestic culinary adventures along with amazing restaurant meals.

On a side note… one of the reasons for the lack of blog posts is the addition of Lola, our Boston Terrier puppy. Isn’t she adorable?

But, tonight… let me tell you about tonight. Actually, hold on. Let me rewind. This past week, Joe and I decided to hit up Costco. It had been awhile since we had last stocked up, so of course we went a bit crazy. Case of peaches? Yep. Huge container of red cherries? Of course. And yet another massive container of plums?

Let’s just say that we have an overabundance of fruit in our household and I’m currently searching my favorite recipe site, Allrecipes, for fun dishes to incorporate these fruits.

Tonight, immediately after busting out a few miles on the pavement, I ate a ripe, juicy peach. Those peaches are so sweet and juicy, but ripening too quickly. I can’t let those go to waste, I thought. I found a recipe called GA Peach Pound Cake which had a 4.5 star rating among 200+ reviews. I trust Allrecipes reviews, and had all of the ingredients in the pantry, so gave it a try tonight.

Below are the modifications I made to the recipe:

  1. Halved all ingredients except for:
    1. Vanilla – kept this as 1 teaspoon
    2. Peaches – chopped up two ripe peaches, approx. 1.5 cups
  2. Added 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
  3. Added 10 chopped red cherries

If you’re a fan of peaches, you will absolutely love this pound cake! It’s super moist, just like a pound cake should be. The peaches and cherries make the pound cake that much better, incorporating a natural sweetness to each slice.

Yum. Smile The true verdict to this recipe test is how Joe reacted. Verdict? “Eff.” That means it was amazing, and something that I will make again someday.

The prep work of peeling and chopping the fresh peaches, along with pitting and chopping the cherries, was the most tedious part of making this cake. However, the end result is very much worth it. Plus… who wants overripe peaches that then turn into rotting mush, within a matter of days, in their fridge? Nope. Not me.

Hope you give this recipe a try. I’m sure that you could omit peaches and incorporate all-cherries or some other type of berry. Let me know if you try it.

Till next time, friends!
