Expert Tips

  • Wait to spray the bundt pan until you are ready to use it. If you do this step too early the spray will pool at the bottom of the pan.
  • If you use fresh or frozen peaches, use milk for the glaze instead of peach juice.  It will help to thin the mixture and still taste great.
  • Start checking the cake for doneness at 50 minutes.  This will help you to not over bake and get a super moist pound cake.  Be sure to pull it from the oven when there are a few moist crumbs on the toothpick {but no raw batter}, don’t wait until it is clean. 
  • Reserve the canned peach juice.  Using it in the glaze adds a wonderful peach flavor and thins it out into a good consistency.
  • Don’t over mix the crumb topping.  If you overwork the mixture you will end up with a paste instead of a nice crumbly texture.

Storing and Freezing

Store-  Store leftover cake in an airtight container or wrapped tightly in plastic wrap.  It can be kept at room temperature for a couple of days but it will last longer when refrigerated.

Freeze- This cake can be frozen for up to 3 months.  For best results cover the entire cake tightly with plastic wrap or aluminum foil.  Defrost for a couple of hours at room temperature and top with fresh crumb mixture and vanilla glaze before serving.

Instructions

Peach Topping

Cinnamon Pound Cake

  • Preheat the oven to 325°.
  • In a medium bowl add cake mix, instant pudding mix, and cinnamon.. Whisk to combine.  Add milk, eggs, sour cream and vanilla extract. Mix together using an electric mixer until you have a thick batter. Pour peach topping mixture around the bottom of a high quality bundt pan liberally sprayed with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.. Gently spoon the cake batter on top evenly and smooth the top.
  • Bake for 50-65 minutes {start checking at 50 minutes} or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with only a few crumbs {but not not wet}.  Let the cake cool in the pan for one hour.

Crumb Topping

  • While the cake is cooling, turn the oven to 400 degrees and combine all of the crumb mixture ingredients in a small bowl.  Work the mixture together into small crumbs using a pastry blender {or fork}.  Don't overwork the mixture or you will get a paste and it will change the texture.  Sprinkle the crumbs in an even layer onto a silicone mat {or parchment} lined baking sheet.  Bake for 9-11  minutes or until golden brown. 

Assembling and Peach Glaze

  • Once the cake has cooled for an hour, carefully flip it onto a serving dish to cool completely.  Once cooled, sprinkle the cobbler crumb topping over the cake on top of the peach mixture.
  • To make peach glaze, whisk together powdered sugar, reserved peach juice, vanilla, and salt in a bowl.  Add additional peach juice if it is too thick.  Drizzle over cooled cake just before serving.  Store leftovers in an airtight container at room temperature.
