For this recipe, I used canned peaches, but of course, you could also use frozen peaches, just make sure you defrost them and pat dry with kitchen paper to get rid of any excess water from the freeze, or fresh peaches.

I had planned on using fresh but when I tried a piece, it wasn't particularly sweet or juicy so canned it was!

This fruity pound cake is also freezer friendly so if you wanted to make ahead, or cut into slices and freeze it individually if there's just you at home then simply bring to room temperature and it's good to eat!

The raspberry coulis is a simple recipe and only takes a matter of minutes to make.

You will have some leftover so you can use it to drizzle over ice cream or swirl in some yogurt for breakfast or even as a topping on cheesecake.

The addition of raspberry sauce in this pound cake certainly takes it to another flavor level.

It tastes absolutely wonderful and is reminiscent of a peach melba. If you've ever had that combination of peaches and raspberries, then it will certainly take you down memory lane back to the 70's (if you are that old of course!).

For those of you who aren't keen on raspberries, you can leave the coulis out altogether.

It will still taste nice but obviously, you won't get the sharp and sweet mixture of flavors in your cake. You don't need to change any of the ingredient measures if you choose to omit the coulis from the cake.

We've got a lot of pound cake recipes which you can take a look at.

There are lots of different flavors and choices for you, so there will be something for everyone, ranging from our popular Cherry Coconut Pound Cake to a creamy, delicious Tiramisu Pound Cake.

For all you berry fans, we've recently made a wonderful strawberry and lemon angel food cake. It's as fluffy and light as can be and a delicious cake so be sure to check it out! I'm sure you will enjoy it

How to work out the weight in canned fruit

I thought I'd add this tip as some of you may not be aware, but on the label of canned fruit, you will often see 2 weights listed, one which includes the juice and one without as you see in the photo.

You need to look at the DRAINED weight for most recipes that call for canned fruit.

You'll notice the weight differences are quite big so you could end up with not enough fruit for a recipe.

Instructions

Heat oven to 180C, 160c (Fan), or 350F. Grease and line your baking pan. See here for how to line.

Please note, if using a Bundt pan, be sure to grease it very well as it can be hard to get the cake out of such a shaped pan.

How To Line a Loaf or Pound Tin

If you don't have any parchment paper, use our easy pan release recipe (it only takes minutes to make a batch) and your cake will slide out no problem! 

  • Make the raspberry coulis by adding all the ingredients to a bowl

and using a hand blender, blitz until smooth.

How To Make A Raspberry Coulis, blending fruit
  • You don’t need to pass the coulis through a sieve (as what you would normally do for a coulis as it is going in the cake batter and won’t be noticeable),

Get all your ingredients ready, i.e chop the peaches, sieve the flour, and add the salt and baking powder to the flour etc.

If you are using canned or defrosted frozen peaches, use some kitchen paper to remove any excess liquid

Start with making the cake batter by creaming the butter and sugar until a pale light color.

Slowly add the beaten eggs to the mixer, on a low-speed setting, a bit at a time.

If the mixture starts to curdle or split, add a spoonful of your sieved flour, keep on adding the eggs, and a bit of flour if necessary until all the eggs are added.

Add half the milk with half of the flour, keeping the mixer on a slow speed.

Once combined, add the vanilla extract, the rest of the milk and flour.

Right at the end, fold in the chopped peaches

Put ⅔ of the cake batter into the loaf pan.

Run 3 tablespoons of raspberry coulis down the center and take a skewer and gently swirl the batter so the coulis is distributed.

Transfer the cake mixture to the greased and lined loaf pan. Place in the oven for 60 - 65 minutes, check after 1 hour.

Test if done by placing a skewer in the center of the cake and make sure it comes out clean.

Every oven is different so cook times will vary a little.

Please note, if using a Bundt pan, cook time is 45 minutes.

Allow to cool. Store in an airtight container.

TIP

When the cake is on the cooling rack, peel back the parchment from the cake sides so it cools evenly.

NOTES:

  • I haven't added any frosting or topping on this cake. I don't think it is necessary at all. The cake is very tender and moist with so much flavor.
  • The raspberry coulis ingredient ratio will give you a slightly sharp taste. This is deliberate to offset some of the sweetness in the cake itself. If you have a particularly sweet tooth, feel free to add an extra tablespoon of powdered sugar to the coulis mixture.
  • A true coulis requires you to pass the blended mixture through a sieve to remove the seeds. We haven't done this for this recipe simply because you won't notice them at all! I am guessing the seeds must soften a lot during baking!
