We are, sadly, approaching the end of peach season, which runs from late July through early September, here in the mid-Atlantic.  I couldn’t let the summer go past with at least one peach-filled dessert, and this one.. well, this takes the cake.  The bundt cake, to be precise.

The idea behind this cake came from the need to make a dairy-free dessert for someone with an extreme dairy allergy.  It’s generally really easy to substitute in a nut or soy milk for dairy milk, but that.. you know… requires actually purchasing said faux-milk.  I am all about using what I already have on hand!

One of my most-made recipes is an amazing Jewish apple cake.  There’s actually nothing “Jewish” about an apple cake (it’s actually probably Pennsylvania Dutch in origin), but rumor has it that it inherited the Jewish designation because it’s dairy free, and thus a popular Kosher dessert.
