Peach Pound Cake with Whipped Buttermilk

So , a trip to the farmer's market this weekend got me home with a large bucket of peaches... I had already made peach cobbler last week and had almost half a gallon of buttermilk in the fridge that i just had to get rid of...
The one thing that came to my mind was pound cake, but what to do with the buttermilk.... I tried to whip it but it wouldn't work on it's on, so i tried adding half whipping cream, half buttermilk and used agave to sweeten it. It came out so good.... Perfect topping for sweet peaches pound cake!

1 cup of unsalted butter
2 cups of sugar
4 eggs
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
3 cups of cake flour or all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon of baking powder
1/2 teaspoon of salt
2 cups of fresh chopped peaches

Preheat oven to 350F.
Butter a tube pan.
In a large bowl sift together 2 1/2 cups of flour, salt and baking powder.
in another bowl coat peaches well with 1/2 cup of flour.
In the bowl of a electric mixer over medium speed, beat butter and sugar until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time until completely mixed. Slowly add the flour mixture until all mixed. Fold in the floured peaches and pour in prepared baking pan.

Bake for 60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center of cake comes out dry. Serve with whipped buttermilk.

Whipped Buttermilk:
1 cup of buttermilk
1 cup of heavy whipping cream
4 tablespoons of sugar or agave

In the bowl of a electric mixer with a whisk attachment beat together cream, buttermilk and sugar on high until soft peaks form. Refrigerate for 1 hour before serving.


  1. Oh wow - poundcake is one of my faves, and I just adore peaches! Definitely will be trying this when our fresh peaches start coming in =)

  2. We have a truck from Georgia bring peaches to our local farmer's market twice a week! Such a treat early in the season! HOpe you enjoy the recipe!

  3. That just looks lovely and your cream would make it fabulous. I have a sweet treat linky party going on at my blog and I'd love it if you'd come by and link your cake up.
