4 Desserts You Can Make with Peaches

Summer is here and that can only mean one thing. Peach-themed desserts! Some of my absolute favorite desserts are peach-flavored, so I’m personally very excited when they are finally in season again! I thought it would be fun to put together this list of 4 desserts you can make with peaches to help get your summer started off on the right foot!

The good thing about peaches is that you can use canned if the fresh produce is not in season. So, if you’re really craving a peach dessert you can enjoy one no matter the time of year. However, I love to bake as many peach desserts as I can when they are in season! 

I’ve run into a few roadblocks when baking with peaches (which you’ll read more about in a minute), but I didn’t let those stop me. If you’ve struggled with getting that peach flavor just right, I think these recipes will help you nail that flavor you’re looking for!

Peach Dessert #1: Peach Crisp Cake with Cinnamon Oat Crumble

This Peach Crisp Cake with Cinnamon Oat Crumble is one of my favorites! I know I say that a lot, but this one is definitely in my top ten. The cake layers with their different elements make you truly feel like you’re eating a peach crisp, and the buttercream is like the ice cream on top! I hope this cake turns out better than what you expected, just like it was for me the first time I tried it!

Peach Dessert #2: Peach Upside Down Cake

My Peach Upside Down Cake is super simple to make! It’s just one delicious cake layer, caramelized peaches, and a beautiful whipped topping to finish it off. This really is the perfect cake to celebrate summer with. (But you can totally make this any time of the year if you want using canned peaches!) You could even substitute this cake for a meal if you wanted to! It’s one of my more versatile desserts. 😉 

Peach Dessert #3: Peaches and Cream Cake

I went through quite the predicament when creating this Peaches and Cream Cake. This special cake was requested by my sweet Avery on her fifth birthday. I went through many failed rounds of baking this cake before I got the flavor right. So, I think it’s safe to say I am happy with the end result once I finally nailed the peach flavor! And this cake is so beautiful to look at with the ombre buttercream effect. I hope you enjoy this cake as much as my Avery did!

Peach Dessert #4: Traeger Baked Peach Crisp Cake

This Traeger Baked Peach Crisp Cake is definitely one of a kind. I attended the Gygi Grilling Gala hosted by Orson Gygi a couple of years ago because they actually invited me to be a part of it! They challenged me to invent a cake that could be grilled! I had never thought of doing something like that before, but now I was super interested in creating something. And that’s where my Traeger Baked Peach Crisp Cake was born. So, if you’re looking for a summer bbq dessert to try, this one would be perfect!
