The official first day of summer isn’t till Saturday, but this Yogurt Peach Cake will put you in the mood for sweet, sunny days!
Even though the basic recipe is pretty fail proof, the key to making this cake exceptional is exceptional peaches. Last week, we received a couple of peaches in our local produce delivery. They were so juicy, and infused the whole cake with delicious peach flavor!
That being said, I’m pretty sure that even canned sliced peaches would work beautifully for this recipe. Like, I said, this cake is practically fail-proof. The only special note I have for this recipe is that the measurements are in grams. If you have a kitchen scale, no worries, otherwise you’ll have to either do the conversions or wait for me to test this recipe with my conversions. That could be a minute… I was told there would be no math in blogging.

One last thing: the first time I baked this cake, the peaches stayed visible. Unsure why the batter covered them this time, but I am willing to eat more Yogurt Peach Cake to find out!
