Do you love a great recipe that’s super easy? Yeah, me too, so today I’m sharing a recipe for an easy peach pound cake with lemon glaze.

I think you’re going to love it!!!



My sister in law’s grandmother gave her this recipe many years ago, and she shared it with me. I’ve been making it ever since, and it’s always a crowd pleaser.

It was actually a recipe for apricot pound cake which is just as delicous, but I sometimes change it up and make peach.

And you won’t believe what the ingredient is that makes the fruit flavor! It’s also what makes this cake so moist and delicious.

ingredients for peach pound cake

ingredients for peach cake tray of eggs box yellow cake mix box vanilla pudding mix jar of vegetable oil 2 containers peach baby food and spice jar of cinnamon

1 box yellow cake mix
1 small box instant vanilla pudding mix
2 jars peach baby food (or apricot)
3 eggs
1 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
fresh peaches (optional)

instructions for making peach bundt cake

Mix all ingredients together until well blended.

I add chopped up fresh peaches to the batter when they are in season, but it is totally optional.

Grease and sugar (or flour) bundt pan. I like to use sugar for this particular cake, but it is totally your preference. Either will work.

Pour batter into pan and bake at 325 degrees for 50-60 minutes. Time may vary based on your oven. Mine takes about 50 minutes.

Take out of oven and let cool.

Remove cake from pan and place on plate or serving dish.

to make lemon glaze for peach bundt cake

Mix about 1 cup powdered sugar with juice from 1-2 lemons. Whisk together until sugar is dissolved and there are no lumps in the mixture.

Less lemon juice will make a thicker consistency, so it’s totally up to you if you want a thicker glaze on top.

Pour lemon glaze over cake, and enjoy!!

I like to decorate the center of my cake with a fresh flower. You can even place a small glass filled with water in the center, and add a small bouquet of flowers too.

For this Cranberry Orange Bundt Cake I made at Christmas, I showed 3 different options for decorating the center.

One option is filling the center with fruit. In this case, I froze cranberries and filled the center.

The second option was magnolia leaves from a neighbor’s tree, and lastly some hydrangea blossoms from my garden.

Use your imagination for embellishing your cake!!

You won’t believe how moist this peach bundt cake is and can you believe that baby food is what creates the fruit flavor?

It’s easy to adapt the recipe flavor, by changing up the flavor of the baby food fruit you use.

And I’m actually planning to try it with lemon curd. I love anything lemon flavor and think it would be perfect for summer.

  1. Boxed cakes mixes have chemicals you would never eat, but you’re eating them in this recipe. Just make the cake from scratch and feel good you are not feeding your family chemicals.
    I just did a demo prep for an app and it requiring my using yellow cake mix. I hated the aroma and I finally baked chicken in my oven to take the smell of the mix away.

    1. Diana: I’m so sorry you took this tack. If you don’t choose to use commercially produced cake mixes, I’m sure you could use a homemade yellow cake recipe recipe and have a good result. No need to excoriate the blogger. Just modify to suit your personal preferences.

      In a world where you can be anything, be kind.
