A moist pound cake that uses those juicy summer peaches. I have served this at bridal brunches and teas.

This is a good, dense and moist pound cake! I don't know if my peaches were somehow bland or my almond extract particularly potent, but somehow the peaches got lost behind the almond taste. Which is not a bad thing at all - I like almond cake - it's just that I was looking forward to a peachier cake! I will definitely try this cake again and use a little less almond extract - the combination still sounds great!
