For me, there’s not much that says “summer” more than peaches. When I was growing up, we would go visit my grandma every summer. And every summer she would have homemade peach jam waiting for us. My grandma is an amazing cook. She can take a little of this and a little of that and turn it into the best thing you’ve ever eaten. I’ve never been able to replicate her peach jam, so I have to stick with things like this Peach Cobbler Loaf Cake to get my peach fix.
This cake is a tender, soft vanilla cake that has pieces of fresh peach throughout. It’s topped with a sweet, brown sugar crumble topping and a drizzle of icing. This Peach Cobbler Loaf Cake would be equally at home for breakfast (coffee cake!) or for dessert. No matter when you enjoy it, this cake is a great way to enjoy a little bit of summery goodness!
