Easy Peach Fancy

(6 Votes)
Easy Peach Fancy
1 Hr 5 Min

Don't be fooled by its thick batter, 'cause it'll bake up into a light and fluffy cake. And what's better is the caramelized cinnamon sugar peaches on top! Serve Easy Peach Fancy with a scoop of ice cream or on its own, either way it's to-die-for.

What You'll Need:
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 to 3 peaches, halved and pitted
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat an 8-inch square baking pan with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together sugar and butter. Add flour, baking powder, and eggs; beat well. (Batter will be thick.)
  3. Spread batter into prepared baking pan. Cover with peach halves, skin side up, so that they are just touching (do not crowd). Sprinkle peaches with lemon juice, then sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon.
  4. Bake about 1 hour or until golden. Remove from oven and cool on a rack. Serve warm or cold.
  • You can use nectarines or plums instead of peaches, or even try a combination. You may want to serve this at room temperature or reheated.

Can this recipe be doubled to make a larger cake?

Hello! We have not tried doubling this recipe, but we believe it may work. You will need to bake in a 9 x 13 and be sure to watch the time, as it will vary with a larger cake. Let us know how it turns out!

I use frozen peaches, thawed and drained. Works great and is easier to cover the batter with slices

I made this pie with canned peaches. I did drain them in a colander and then paper towel. This picture is not the Peach fancy pie. I took it to a food fair and it went well.

I have the same question as moonbeam - don't have access to ripe peaches and would like to know if canned peaches can be used?

I see no reason why you could not use any canned fruit that is drained in this cake. Ruby Brown

Would it work to use canned peaches that are well drained? Maybe sprinkled with Instant Tapioca?

Just drain the can peaches and use them as you would the ripe peaches. But I do not know about using Instant tapioca I do not see why you would. Ruby Brown
