I made this cake twice. The 1st time it was too dense and a little fat rested on bottom. I also thought it was too sweet. The second time I added 1 tea baking powder. I think the cake is too moist and too sweet, the ingredients mixed well.
I I used trader Joe's jarred peaches and soaked them in peach schnapps they were good.
I will make again leaving out 1/2 C sugar and will reduce the brown sugar/butter mixture for bottom, it seemed too much. I also had cake batter left and made cupcakes with it. They were also too sweet but not overly greasy as the cake. Nice recipe just needs a few revisions.
I have made this recipe three times. The first time I did find the cake quite dense and very sweet. My second attempt I added 1 1/2 tsp baking powder which helped the density. My third make I kept the baking powder and reduced the granulated sugar by 1/2 a cup which worked great for my family.
I would put a baking sheet underneath while baking. It overflowed a bit at the end of cooking process but my family devoured it. So good.
It was too dense,not very sweet,the brown sugar syrup was not interesting for flavor and there was too much batter for the 10" bundt.
This cake is well worth the effort--very moist and flavorful. There was no leavening agent in the recipe so I added a couple of teaspoons of baking powder. There was also about 1/2 cup excess batter and with the baking powder I knew it would overflow my bundt pan. Remove about 1/2 cup of batter if you don't want it to overflow. It is why I give this 4 stars not 5.
It is plenty sweet w/o the glaze but it does dress it up a bit. Your choice. Love the bourbon undertone--just right and delicious with fresh juicy Georgia peaches. A keeper recipe!
I made this cake for an office lunch. When I went back to the table to get a slice for dessert there wasn’t even a crumb left on my cake plate! A huge hit that I have made since. Use fresh SC peaches and a good bourbon.
My husband is not a real sweets lover, but listening to this he said he was ready to try it!
I'm surprised you didn't use bourbon in the glaze.
