Blueberry-Peach Pound Cake Recipe

Blueberry-Peach Pound Cake Recipe

This recipe was a lucky experiment. I was going to make apple pound cake but found I had no apples. So, I used the blueberries and peaches I had on hand. I was a winning combination.—Nancy Zimmerman, Cape May Court House, New Jersey
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 1 hour + cooling YIELD:10-12 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1-1/4 cups sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2-1/2 cups cake flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2-1/4 cups chopped peeled fresh peaches (1/2-inch pieces)
  • 2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
  • Confectioners' sugar, optional

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, one at a time. Beat in milk. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; add to creamed mixture. Stir in peaches and blueberries.
  • 2. Pour into a greased and floured 10-in. fluted tube pan. Bake at 350° for 60-70 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.
