Oh my!!! Summer time fruits and veggies are finally coming into season! Hands down…this is my favorite “eating season of the year”. Is that a real thing? I’m not even sure but I am officially calling it. Berries are a favorite at our house. I wash them and keep them available in the fridge. The kiddos will grab a handful of berries over other snacks if I keep them easily accessible. Several years ago I found a fun recipe that infuses peaches and blueberries into a delightful pound cake. At first glance, someone once told me this combination was “a little strange” but after one bite they were hooked. This pound cake is sweet and delicious. The berries infuse flavor and keep the cake moist.
This summertime favorite is simply delicious! Yummy peaches and fresh blueberries create a flavorful pound cake that is hard to resist.
