Fresh Peach Cake is a buttery cake topped with fresh peaches and pecans. A few tricks keep it on the lighter side without sacrificing any flavor. One of my favorite cakes that my mom makes is a dried apricot cake. It’s a butter cake that’s studded with dried apricots and topped with cinnamon and sugar. The cake is simple yet delicious. So, when I saw all of the awesome fresh peaches at the store, I knew that I wanted to make a fresh peach cake that’s a version of the apricot cake.So, I swapped out the dried apricots for fresh peaches and added some pecans on top for a little crunch. And since I was doing some swapping, I figured I’d lighten the cake up because, hey, it’s summer, and that just seemed like the thing to do.
