Peach, Pecans and Cinnamon Cake

Saturday, June 11, 2011

My daughter and I were invited to a barbeque upstate today, at one of my colleagues' country house. I knew it was an approximately 3 hours drive to get there, so I needed a cake that would travel well under any weather conditions. I decided to make this one:



This cake can be made with fresh ripe peaches or pears.
 Ingredients:
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups sliced fresh or frozen peaches
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans, optional
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • powdered sugar

Preparation:

Preheat oven to 350°. Beat eggs well; add 2 cups sugar and the oil, beating until well blended. 


Combine flour, salt, and baking powder; beat into egg and oil mixture alternating with orange juice. Blend in the vanilla extract. 



In a separate bowl, toss the sliced peaches (and pecans, if using) with 1/4 cup sugar and the cinnamon.



Pour about one-third of the batter into a greased, and floured tube pan. Layer one-half peach mixture over it. Cover with another one-third of batter and the remaining peach mixture. Spread remaining batter over the last layer. 



Bake at 350° for 60 minutes, or until a wooden pick or cake tester inserted in center comes out clean. Cool cake 10 minutes in pan; turn out onto a wire rack. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.


And that's it! Enjoy!

Alina, mi-ar fi placut sa aiba ceva mai multe piersici; anyway, a fost foarte buna praji, moale si aromata, sper sa-ti placa daca o incerci! O saptamana excelenta iti doresc, si pupaturi maxime :))
