My collection of bundt pans are stacked on a shelf. Deciding which one to use sometimes comes easy and other times not so much. I’ll stand there looking to figure out the right one for a particular cake. Does it have a glaze? Or dusted with powdered sugar? Or in this case, what is the size? I truly thought the pan I used with this cake was a 12-cup one. Perhaps not or this Peach Brandy Pound Cake is one that really puffs up.
The roundness of the cake top made me laugh. My husband looked at it and said “That’s a big ‘ole cake”. Then the song “Baby Got Back” by Sir Mix-A-Lot crept into my mind and, well, this happened:
I gotta big bundt and I cannot lie
You other bakers can’t deny
When you stand in any place
With a round bundt in your face
You get hungry, need your chin wiped
’cause you notice that bundt is spiked
Deep in the batter is brandy
You’re hooked ’cause you know its dandy
Oh, bundt, I wanna bite you
And take your picture…
Peach Brandy Pound Cake is a boozy bundt. It has both peach brandy and dark rum in it. The peach flavor is light and there is only a slight peachy hint in the background. I think next time I’ll add some peach flavoring in addition to vanilla to make it peachier. Another option is to serve it with fresh peaches when they are in season.
Pounds cakes have a classic crunchy top. Well, when it is baked as a bundt it becomes the bottom. You can see the cracks in this one. Those cracks made me smile too. I knew I’d save those bites for the last because I enjoy them the most. Or cut off a chunk of that crunchy goodness when no one was looking. Just kidding. Maybe. Ahem. I did eat a regular slice though and it was right after this photo of it:

I dont have peach brandy, would peach shnapps work as a substitite?
Monday 13th of April 2020
Most likely it would work. It might make the cake a little sweeter, because schnapps is sweeter than brandy.

bundts cake looks great
Tuesday 2nd of December 2014
I have never made a traditional pound cake but tasted one last week and it had that crunchy bottom. Loved it. Vowed then to make one soon. And this peach and brandy looks like a great starting point.

LMAO I LOVE that you reworked the lyrics to Baby Got Back, Renee. You crack me up, lady. This bundt looks divine - so high 'n fluffy! The crispy crust is always my favourite part to eat. I say the baker is always entitled to hack it all off and eat it first. I'm totally envious of your bundt pan collection (mine needs to grow!) and booze in baking is the beeeeeeeeest!
