Fresh peach slices nestle in a moist spice cake with a buttery sugar bottom in our Peach Spice Cake.

Our Peach Spice Cake recipes makes an awesome moist spice cake with a bottom layer of caramelized sugar and peaches. It is a terrific way to use up those somewhat shriveled or slightly blemished fresh peaches haunting your refrigerator’s produce bin and giving you guilt pangs every time you see them. Peel them with a paring knife or by our hot water method, cut out any soft or bruised spots, slice the good fruit and proceed with the recipe for a really delicious cake. Of course, unblemished peaches work will, too!

The original recipe from Mom’s recipe box calls for using peach halves. We made it that way and it was delicious, but really clunky and awkward to cut and eat, so we modified the recipe to use peach slices instead. Same great flavor, better texture and easier to eat.

So use up your leftover peaches and surprise your family with a really flavorful cake.
