– [Natasha] This peach
cake is unbelievably easy. It’s soft, moist, and loaded with peaches. This recipe is perfect for
last-minute entertaining. You’ll make it again and again. We’ll start with some quick prep. Preheat your oven to
350 degrees fahrenheit and grease a nine-inch springform pan. Now pit and peel one pound
or three large peaches then slice them into about
1/2-inch-thick pieces. (upbeat music) You should end up with 2
1/4 cups of chopped fruit. Measure that out to be sure
and set it aside for later. In a small mixing bowl whisk together 1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour, 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking
powder, and 1/4 teaspoon of salt. We’re gonna put that aside for later. And in a large mixing bowl combine 3/4 cup or 12 tablespoons
of softened unsalted butter with 1 cup of sugar. Beat those together on high speed for about four to five
minutes or until fluffy. Now we need three large
room-temperature eggs. Add the eggs one at a time,
allowing them to incorporate into the batter before
adding the next egg. Then continue mixing another
minute on medium-high speed. Once the mixture is well blended, grate and beat in 1/2
teaspoon of fresh lemon zest along with 1/2 teaspoon
of real vanilla extract. Set the mixer to low speed and beat in your flour
mixture 1/3 at a time, letting it mix just
until it’s well blended. On to my favorite part, fold in 2 1/4 cups of your diced peaches. Fold the peaches gently into
that thick and fluffy batter which smells absolutely
amazing at this point. Transfer the batter to
your greased springform pan and smooth out the top. Bake in the center of a preheated oven at 350 degrees fahrenheit for
about 50 minutes to one hour or until a toothpick
inserted into the center comes out clean without wet batter. All right, this has come out of the oven. It’s been resting for just
as long as I can stand it. And I’m totally ready for this taste test. It smells so good in my kitchen right now. So before it comes out of the pan, we’re gonna just take a thin
spatula around the edges to loosen it up from the pan. And then it comes out pretty easy. Okay. Ooh, perfect. (laughs) All right, time to make this beautiful and completely irresistible. So we’re gonna add a
crown of powdered sugar. This is the easiest topping. And it just looks so
striking when you serve it with powdered sugar, ooh-hoo-hoo. Okay, that looks good. Okay, and then I’ve sliced
up some fresh peach. And just decorate the top with those. I like to put them in a ring, so everyone knows that
this is a peach cake even before they slice into it. Simple and pretty. I like these kind of recipes. All right, now for the taste test. I’m gonna get a generous slice here. (hums) This looks good. Oh, that’s so soft. (chuckles) Come in and get a close look while I pull this thing out. It is so fluffy. (chuckles) Yes. All right, where’s my plate? Where’s that plate when you need it? Oh, wow, look at that. Here we go, the moment
I’ve been waiting for. Mmm. This cake is fluffy perfection. It’s loaded with juicy
and kind of tangy peaches. It’s lightly sweet. You’ve got that little hint of lemon zest. It is perfect. It makes for a really
good coffee cake, too. Make this for your next anything. (laughs) Make it tomorrow; make it today. You guys are gonna love this recipe. If you enjoyed this video, give me a great big thumbs up below. Make sure to subscribe
