PEACH CRUMB CAKE

Peach Crumb Cake - TSLC - CopyThis Peach Crumb Cake is wonderful with your morning coffee or serve to friends and family as a great dessert.  We love anything with peaches and this one will be a winner.

Cake:

1 (16 ounce) package frozen sliced peaches (could use fresh peach slices or canned slices, drained)

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup white granulated sugar

1 stick butter or 8 tablespoons or 1/2 cup, melted

1 cup sour cream

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

2 eggs

Whisk together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, salt and sugar in a large mixing bowl.  Pour in melted butter and sour cream.  Mix well with spoon.  Add vanilla extract and eggs. Mix to combine.  If using frozen peaches let thaw enough that you can cut into bite-sized pieces. (Can thaw a little in microwave) If using fresh or canned, be sure to drain canned peaches, then cut into pieces. Fold peaches into cake mixture.  Spray a 9 x 9 inch baking dish with cooking spray and add cake mixture.   Make the streusel recipe below and crumble on the top of cake mixture.

Streusel Topping:

1/3 cup white granulated sugar

1/3 cup brown sugar

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

1 stick butter or 8 tablespoons or 1/2 cup, melted

Whisk together all ingredients but butter.  Melt butter and stir into flour mixture with spoon. Crumble on top of cake mixture. (I just do this with my hands) Bake cake in preheated 350 degree oven for 55 to 60 minutes until center tests done. Can sprinkle on powdered sugar before serving.  If you want to garnish with peach slices be sure to keep a few aside to go on the top. Makes 1 cake.  Enjoy!

This quote says it best:  “To win the Kentucky Derby is the goal of every trainer, every hot-walker, every backside person.  They may be just rubbing a horse, or hot-walking a horse, but they wonder if they would win the Kentucky Derby.” ~~Bob Lewis

The great thing about the Kentucky Derby is that you can watch it from Millionaire’s Row or the infield in Louisville, you can watch it with family at home or you can watch it with friends at a derby party and it will be an exciting time.  I hope you will join my state this weekend and enjoy the derby.  From my family to yours have a great derby weekend!

EASY ORANGE BUNDT CAKE

Easy Orange CakeCake is one of my favorite things in this world.  I love it! I could eat cake every meal.  This cake will quickly become one of your “go to” recipes especially if you like anything orange flavored.  It is so easy to make using a mix and keeps well in a cool place for several days. It is a great cake to take to the office or on a picnic or anywhere you need a recipe your friends and family will love.  I have not tried freezing it but see no reason why you couldn’t.

Cake:

1 (15.25 ounce) box Pillsbury Traditional Yellow Cake Mix

1 (3.5 ounce) box French Vanilla Instant Pudding and Pie Filling

3 eggs

1 1/4 cups fresh or regular orange juice from carton

1 stick or 1/2 cup or 8 tablespoons butter, melted

1 teaspoon orange or vanilla extract

1 tablespoon orange zest

Combine cake mix, pudding mix, eggs, orange juice, butter and extract and mix on medium with mixer.  Fold in orange zest and mix with spoon. Batter will be thick.  Spray a 10 inch bundt pan with cooking spray generously.  Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 45 to 50 minutes until center is done when tested.  Cool about 10 minutes in pan. Remove and let cool completely. Add frosting or glaze recipe below.   Makes 1 cake.

Glaze:

3/4 cup powdered sugar

3 tablespoons milk

1 to 2 tablespoons orange zest

Whisk together ingredients and drizzle over cooled cake.

Note:  You could also frost this cake with my cream cheese frosting recipe and add the orange zest to the frosting or use any frosting you like on this cake. This is the only way I make this cake because we like the recipe the way it is posted above. You could make it in a 9 x 13 pan if you like.

Enjoy!

A VISIT FROM TASTE OF THE SOUTH MAGAZINE!

We wanted to write a post and let our fans in on a little secret we have been keeping since January.  The good people from Taste of the South Magazine out of Birmingham, Alabama made a visit to Kentucky and guess who is in the May/June issue coming out this month?  If you guessed The Southern Lady, Judy Yeager, you would be right! 

The photo below is the crew that joined us that day.  From left to right:  Anne Parker Walkup, my daughter, Brooke Bell, Editor, Taste of the South Magazine, Jim Bathie, Photographer behind Brooke, Brian Hart Hoffman, President/CCO of Hoffman Media,  Judy Yeager, Southern Lady, Leigh Harper Walkup, my daughter.

IMG_1016 - CopyWe all had a lovely visit.  The Taste of the South people were so much fun and made us all feel as if we had known each other forever.  We discussed recipes, cookbooks, food and the magazine article called “Dishing with The Southern Lady Cooks”.   My daughter, Anne, was taking pictures at the same time they were getting photographs.  I have to admit I was nervous at first but we got the photos over with as soon as they arrived and just enjoyed visiting.  We loved finding out that my girls are twins and Brian is a twin, too!

Check out all the excitement taking place in the kitchen during the photos!

We recently received our issues and are so pleased with the article.  We made Brooke, Brian and Jim some of my Kentucky Bourbon Balls and my Honey Bun Cake.  As proper Southerners they returned the tin I gave them the bourbon balls in filled with a wonderful Pound Cake!  Thank you so much Taste of the South!  We really enjoyed the cake and meeting each of you and sharing time together.  You are always welcome in Kentucky!

Please check your local stores on April 21st. for Taste of the South Magazine or order online from their site. The May/June 2015 issue celebrates all things barbecue and delicious sides with Blue-Ribbon Pie recipes you will love.  We hope you will enjoy “Dishing with The Southern Lady Cooks”, too.
