THB : Peach-Cashew Coffee Cake

This week's bake at The Home Bakers (THB), is Peach-Cashew Coffee Cake, selected by Chaya of Bizzy Bakes.


The base is a butter cake topped with sliced peaches and toasted cashew nuts before baking. I have used canned peaches and did not toss them with lemon juice and nutmeg powder as stated in the recipe. And I have reduced the sugar to half. Cashew nut is an interesting ingredient which I seldom find in baking recipes. 


This cake can be baked in a tart pan or a springform pan, and I have used a 9-1/2 inch springform pan. Bake for 30 minutes until golden brown and cooked.


A very nice cake, the texture of the cake is soft and tender, buttery and very moist, with the sliced peaches and the cashew nuts, makes this a perfect coffee cake.

  2. So funny, Joyce : yesterday I was thinking I should make a peach cake :)
    This one looks perfect. This is a very good idea to use canned peach. They are good and it prevents to "waste" fresh preaches if our cake is, finally, not too good :)

    1. Hi Thea,
      The cashew nuts are first toasted and then used in the recipe. It is not really crispy but definitely not soggy. You can replace with almonds or pistachios.
