Tips for Making Peach Cobbler Pound Cake

  • Fresh Peaches: The riper, the better.
  • Canned Peaches: If using canned peaches, be sure to drain them well.
  • Bundt Pan Prep: Grease your bundt pan thoroughly with butter, then coat with flour. Avoid using oil spray as it might cause sticking.
  • Flour Substitute: No cake flour? Just replace ¼ cup of all-purpose flour with ¼ cup of cornstarch or use all-purpose flour directly. It’ll still be delicious.
  • Mixing the Batter: Don’t overmix. Stir just until the dry ingredients are combined. Scrape the bowl occasionally.
  • Baking Time: Check the cake with a toothpick. Stop baking once it comes out clean.
