What makes this cake so delicious?
This delicious Peach Moscato Cake is lightly sweet, moist and a fluffy white cake soaked with sweet moscato. The cake is then filled with a sweet boozy peachy filling then topped with a fluffy buttercream. Having a good Moscato such a this one from 90+ Cellars really helps take this cake over the top!
The Peach Filling
Diced sweet summery peaches, macerated in sugar and moscato for 30 minutes or so. For the filling you will need 2-3 ripe peaches, pits removed and diced into bite sized pieces.
This Peach Moscato cake has a super simple vanilla buttercream that is light, fluffy and doesn’t overpower the cake.
How to make the cake
To make the cake, start out with three 8 inch square baking pans, greased with baking spray. Beat the butter and sugar for about 2- 3 minutes until it is light and fluffy. Next, add in the egg and the vanilla, mix on medium for about 1 minute. While the mixture is mixing, combine the flour and baking powder together. In a separate bowl mix together the wet ingredients. Pour in the dry, alternating between the dry and wet until mixture is just combined.
Bake for 20-25 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Once the cake cools, poke it with several holes. Place the cakes on a sheet pan, pour the moscato over each layer of cake then wrap the sheet pan in plastic wrap for about 1-2 hours.
Let’s Assemble the cake
Place the first cake layer on a cake stand, start by piping along the edge of the first layer so you have a circle. Next, fill the cake with the peach filling, repeat with the second layer and top with the last layer. Frosting the entire cake with the buttercream, until the cake is completely covered.
Can I make this cake without Alcohol?
Of course! Just don’t soak the cake with moscato and don’t soak the peaches with moscato. For the peaches, simply macerate with sugar and let it sit for 30 minutes.
Will the cake get soggy?
The cake will be best eaten the same day if possible. If eaten within 2-3 days after baking, the alcohol will continue to soak into the layers creating a slightly soggy cake.
- The cake can be soaked in the moscato for 2-6 hours.
- The peach filling can be made the day prior
- Buttercream can also be made the day prior to save on time.
