Ingredients for This Peach Cake

I love how easy this blueberry ricotta cake is to put together! It’s made with staple pantry ingredients you’re sure to have on hand. For the cake batter, we’ll need eggs, butter, sugar, vanilla, ricotta cheese, flour, almond flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In my video recipe, I also added some peach extract, which is optional. For the fruit portion of this recipe, we’ll need a few fresh peaches, a few cups of blueberries and cornstarch to thicken the fruit juices as the cake bakes!

How to Make a Blueberry Peach Ricotta Cake

Here’s how I put this incredible, easy summer cake together!

  1. Start by preheating the oven to 335F. Line a 9-inch spring form pan with parchment paper and spray the sides with a non-stick baking spray.
  2. I recommend having all the ingredients at room temperature. Into a large mixing bowl, add the softened butter, sugar, vanilla and optional peach extract. Cream the butter for a few minutes until the mixture is fluffy and creamy.
  3. Add the eggs into the butter and sugar mixture and beat for a couple minutes, until the eggs are well beaten. Add in the ricotta cheese next and mix again just until it’s incorporated.
  4. In a separate bowl, combine the dry ingredients: flour, almond flour, baking powder and soda, and salt. Sift the dry ingredients into the cake batter, then beat on medium speed for about a minute, just until the dry ingredients are incorporated.
  5. Next, prepare the fruit! Slice a few peaches for the top and chop half a peach for the cake filling. Place the chopped peach, along with 1 cup of blueberries into a mixing bowl and toss with 1 tablespoon of cornstarch. Fold this fruit mixture into the cake batter with a spatula.
  6. The cake batter is all done! Transfer the batter into the prepared spring form pan and level the top with a spatula. Toss the remaining sliced peaches with 1 tablespoon of cornstarch, then arrange them single layer over the top of the cake. Watch my video recipe to see how it’s done! Sprinkle about ½ cup of blueberries over the top.
  7. Baking time! Bake the cake for about 1 hour and 20 to 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Remove the cake from the pan and onto a wire rack to cool.

Cake Serving Suggestions

This peach ricotta cake can be enjoyed just as it is with a cup of coffee in the morning or after dinner. If you want to make it extra special, try serving it a la mode with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, or make a batch of easy whipped cream:

  1. Place 1 cup of chilled heavy cream into a mixing bowl, along with 1/3 cup confectioner’s sugar and ½ teaspoon of vanilla or peach extract.
  2. Whisk on slow speed first, working your way up to high speed. Whisk for about 4 minutes, until stiff peaks form.
  3. Add spoonful’s of whipped cream on the side of each slice and enjoy!

Common Recipe Questions

Can I make this peach cake without the almond flour?

Yes, this recipe will work great without the almond flour, too! Just substitute the ¼ cup almond flour with 2 tablespoons regular flour.

Can I use other fruit for this recipe?

Yes, other fruit and berries will also work great! I really like this cake with blueberries and lemon zest! Raspberries and peaches will also taste amazing!

Can I make this cake ahead of time?

Yes, this is a great cake to make ahead of time as it will keep well for days! I recommend letting the cake cool completely, then wrap it gently with plastic wrap, or place it into an airtight container, and keep it stored at room temperature. Refrigerate the cake after 1 day.

Can I used canned or frozen peaches?

Yes to both! Canned peaches will work great, just drain all the juices before using in the recipe. If you want to use frozen peaches, thaw them completely before using.
