Summer Peach Cake

Summer Peach Cake

We had some peaches sitting around (do peaches sit?) and getting close to the end of their lifespans so I needed to do something quick and we also had a party coming up. Voila! The Summer Peach Cake was born. Tender, gently spiced, aromatic and juicy with succulent peaches, this cake is just sweet enough for me (I don’t like intensely sweet things) but if you are wanting a sweeter cake, try using unbleached cane sugar. It’s very good with a scoop of vanilla dairy-free ice cream, too: the essence of summer!

Summer Peach Cake

2 tablespoons ground flax
6 tablespoons aquafaba
2 cups all-purpose gluten-free baking flour
(I recommend this one)
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cardamom
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
teaspoon ginger powder
1 cup coconut sugar or dry vegan sugar
cup liquid, refined coconut oil
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
cup unsweetened applesauce
cup plain, unsweetened non-dairy milk
(I used almond)
3 - 4 cups ripe peaches, peeled if not organic, roughly chopped

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9-X-13-inch baking pan with parchment paper.

In a small cup, whisk together the flax and aquafaba, making a thick slurry. You can do this with a mini-whisk or a fork. Set in the fridge for 15 minutes.

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, spices and sugar. In a medium bowl, combine the coconut oil, vanilla, applesauce and non-dairy milk, mixing with a spoon. Pour into the dry ingredients along with peaches. Mix until everything is combined. It will be very thick! Spoon into the prepared pan and smooth the top down with the back of a spoon.

Bake for 25 minutes. Turn 180 degrees and bake another 18 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool before serving.
