Peach Bundt Cake with blueberries, Lemon and Greek yogurt #bundtamonth

Peach Bundt 05

The past three weeks have been hectic. My lack of posting is probably the best proof of that. I’ve missed my wordpress blog more than anything in cyber space. I may have lost my ability to blog for a short while but I have not lost my ability to bake. Lord only knows what would happen to me if I could not bake a cake from scratch one day. Anyways, am back, and I’ve this great recipe to share.

Our theme for this month’s bundtamonth was peach.   When I baked this cake, I improvised and used my own recipe. I was really not expecting that the cake would be gone so quickly. I baked it last Friday morning; family was graceful enough to let me take some photos before I served it.

Let me tell you, it was gone in seconds. Literally. Really, I don’t regret that it was gone in seconds but I regret not making two of this. Yes two. One for the family and one for myself. Am one greedy person, I know. My family loved it and so did I. It was full of summer flavor from the peaches and blueberries. Of course you cant taste the Greek yogurt, yet it added a lot of moist-ness (is that even a word?) and softness to the cake. Although it contains butter, its still very light to eat one slice after the other. i just don’t know why. My husband joked and asked whether there were drugs in the cake. it just that addictive. Don’t just take my word (or husband’s) word for it. Try it. You’ll love it as much as we did. I can honestly say that this is one of my favorite cake.

Peaches, blueberries and lemon are three flavors that go reallt well together. But I think that any summer fruit combination would also work, You don’t really have to use peach or blueberry to make this cake, other alternatives would be plums and blackberry, or cherries and raspberry, or apricots and dark chocolate chips(I love the last combination). Bottom line, the recipe is quite versatile, you can make this cake with any fruit you have on hand.

I used this Nordic Ware Platinum Collection Heritage Bundt Pan. Not only is it a beautiful Bundt pan, but its also a heavy duty one made with high quality material. I love to bake so much that I honestly have a dozen Bundt pan, this one is my favorite. Its also very easy to clean. If you’re worried about greasing the pan, just use Pam Cooking Spray. Once you use this spray, you’ll never butter and flour another pan for the rest of your life.

P.S. Always remember before baking this cake or any cake, eggs and butter at room temperature.
