A sweet, moist, cinnamon cake loaded with peaches and lightened up with Greek yogurt! Drizzle the cake with vanilla bean glaze for a delicious summer dessert!
Half way through another week, woohoo! This week has been going by pretty slow for me. I don’t know if it’s the heat that’s bringing me down or something else. I’ve had a total lack of motivation to work and would prefer to just lay in bed and binge watch Netflix shows all day. Sadly, watching Netflix all day doesn’t pay bills or leave me with any money to do fun things on the weekends, wouldn’t it be great if it actually did?! To help motivate myself to get through the rest of this work week and you too if you’re having a week like I am, I made a Cinnamon Peach Yogurt Cake.
I know what you’re thinking, “Oh geez here we go with the peaches again”! I’m not going to lie, there will be a few more peach recipes showing up in the next month, but I promise I’ll break them up with other delicious recipes and not bombard you for a week straight with peach-a-palooza!
This cinnamon peach yogurt cake is not only full of peaches and tasting oh so good, but it’s also lightened up and kept extra moist by using lots of Greek yogurt! So this totally means you can have two slices, you bet your booty I did! This is an 8″ single layer cake, I tend to steer clear from baking layer cakes because all I need is a huge layer cake staring me in the face and daring me to sneak just one more slice. Not to mention I have yet to perfect frosting a layer cake. All you cake bakers/decorators out there, props to you and your awesome frosting skills, I envy you!
After your pretty little cinnamon peach cake is baked, let it cool completely. Then, go ahead and be a little naughty and spoon the awesome vanilla bean glaze all over the top. Since the cake’s lightened up, we can afford to be a little naughty and add the glaze, right? My favorite part about the glaze besides those flecks of vanilla bean, was how it filled the indentations where the peach slices on top had sunk down when the cake baked. It’s like a little swimming pool of vanilla bean glaze, be sure you get one of those slices!
