French Peach Cake

Jump to recipe

I had a group of friends over for dinner the other night. The theme was Mexican Food (of course) but as much as I love flan and arroz con leche or pan dulce, I know not everybody is familiar with them or are used to eating them. So I wanted to make something more neutral, and I wanted to use the peaches I got a the grocery store. So I went to the website of one of my fellows San Antonio Foodies, Michelle. She’s known for her beautiful stylish dishes.

I found this wonderful French cake that looked so tasty and also easy to make. It was the perfect cake for my delicious, sweet peaches. Michelle made a Strawberry version of this cake. You can find her recipe Here.

This cake has some really nice textures going on, the top gets crispy and golden, the cake is soft but also creamy from the sour cream and butter. And the sweet juicy peaches are just perfect on these cake. I gave It a good dust of powder sugar and serve it with home made whipped cream. Perfection!

Thank you, Michelle for the inspiration.

Hello, my name is Marisol Chancellor. I was born and raised in Monterrey Mexico. I’ve been living in Texas for 12 years and even when I love barbeque, fruit cobblers and sweet tea, there’s something that has the power of transporting me right back to my mom’s kitchen and gives me a little piece of home, cooking. I grew up in the kitchen and for me, memories are always linked to food, and behind the food, well, there’s always a story that comes along. So, please let me share with you my love for cooking and while we are at it, let’s share some memories, because let’s be honest, we are also hungry for nostalgia.
