Easy Peach Torte

Easy Peach Torte. This simple torte is a one-bowl, lightly spiced buttery cake showcasing late summer peaches, or any other seasonal fruit you like. It is a truly no-fuss dessert best served warm with a dollop of cream.

Hello again! It’s Olivia here. One of the best things about summer in Ontario are the fresh, beautiful Niagara peaches available in abundance.

Fresh or frozen peaches both work well in this simple recipe idea.

These peaches that I speak of are a hot commodity back in Newfoundland. It’s not uncommon for Ontario folk to bring some along for friends when visiting the island.

Now that we are approaching the height of peach season, I’d like to share this beautiful torte recipe, one of my favourite go-to easy desserts. It’s actually inspired by the famous New York Times Plum Torte, with a few additions I deem essential.

It’s an incredibly simple recipe that can be thrown together in one bowl, baked and ready in just about an hour.

I absolutely love the versatility of this Peach Torte. You can really use any fruits you like, but I would stick to what’s in season. Berries, fresh apricots or pears would all be great choices.

Another favourite trick of mine is to bake this Peach Torte in a cast iron skillet. It makes for a crispy, buttery crust and a beautifully rustic presentation.

You can simply put the warm skillet on a cloth on the dining table and serve from there. A dollop of cream doesn’t hurt, either.

Easy and delicious, highly recommend it. I made it in a 10 inch cake pan that I buttered liberally.
