This peach maple cake is a delicious, healthy dessert that highlights the flavor of fresh peaches. It's a great recipe for snack time or dessert.

When peaches are in season and they go on sale at the grocery store, I tend to go a bit overboard.

I buy lots of peaches. Lots. And I make peach crisp, peach sorbet, and this cake.

Peach maple cake is a delicious summer dessert that takes advantage of fresh peaches. Adapted from this recipe by Martha Stewart, my version is sweetened by maple syrup, which gives it a wonderful flavor. If you’re serving a crowd, you may want to double the recipe. This cake will disappear quickly!

  1. I don’t have the will power to freeze any peaches yet, they’re so sweet and perfect right now! This looks delicious 🙂

  2. I was just looking for a peach cobbler recipe, too! I bought some peaches at the farmers market yesterday. We had them grilled last night and I still have some left to use up. Thanks!

    1. It’s really good with the maple syrup. It seems to be a good complement to the peaches.
