Caramelized Peach Topping~Perfect for Pound Cake
I am finally getting settled in to my new home. One thing that always makes a place feel like home to me is the first time I cook in the kitchen. On Saturday, I set out to do just that with a delicious pound cake and caramelized peaches recipe.
The first place I lived after moving out of my parents house was a small apartment and I moved in just two weeks before my wedding. I set up my kitchen just the way I wanted it, especially unpacking all the new wedding gifts for the kitchen and I started to bake! The task at hand was to bake, decorate and transport my own wedding cake but that’s a post for another day! When we moved into our next apartment my husband bought me my Kitchen Aid stand mixer in the first week and I made some cinnamon muffins.
Two years later in our quiet home at 11:30 at night I decided it was time to bake! So I looked up the pound cake recipe from Life Anchored that was my feature pick from last weeks Snickerdoodle Sunday party! (Please visit her blog for the recipe.) This recipe creates a wonderful pound cake and I followed the ingredients to a T.
Peel and slice peaches, simmer in butter, sugar and cinnamon until tender.
Since it was my first time cooking in this kitchen I had to wait a while to gauge the temperature of the oven and the cake takes about an hour to bake. So there I was a 1:00 am eating of the pound cake in my kitchen as the rest of my little family was fast asleep! I love the way a house smells after baking. For the first time I didn’t smell the construction saw dust or paint, I smelled this amazing mixture of peaches, vanilla and sugar and I felt at home.
