This wasmy first time making pound cake and for that matter eating one that was not store bought. YUM. I used my homemade Lavendar Peach Jam. I didn't find the cake "peachy" flavoured but it is moist and spongy. I was all set to use the pan suggested but since it is just DH and I and we do NOT need a large cake LOL I ended up making 3 loaves. I greased and parchment paper lined the pans. I am glad I did this is a delicate cake. I used the slices as a base for strawberry shortcake. DELISH. The other two loaves have been sliced and froze so we can take out a few slices at a time. Made for Photo tag March 20009. This is a definite keeper. Thanks Mary for a great recipe
I had some extra peach jam and this was a great recipe to use.
This was the cake that my mom wanted for her birthday!She thought that it was really moist and good.I could not find the peach jam a the store so I got perserves.I added a cup.They melted into the cake just fine.Around the top of the cake there were some peices that did not melt though.I think that it added someting to the cake.Next time ,that I make the cake I think that I might add either some fresh peaches or some frozen peaches to it.That way it will have some peices if peach in the cake.It was simple to make and very good.I think the fact that it was not to sweet was a major plus.That way you could make it into a shortcake or put a whipped topping on it.I will make this one often!Thanks for a great cake!!
