Ingredients

Cake

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp bourbon
  • 1 1/2 cup flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk

Bourbon Whipped Cream

  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tsp granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp bourbon
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract

Peaches

  • 3 peaches peeled and sliced
  • 2 tbsp bourbon
  • 2 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon

Instructions

Cake

  • Preaheat the oven to 350 degrees farenheit. Grease a 9 inch cake pan, set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugars together until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg. Stir in the vanilla extract, bourbon and buttermilk until combined. Mix together flour, baking powder and salt. Add flour mixture to creamed mixture. Spread batter into prepared cake pan.
  • Bake in preheated oven until lightly browned on top, 35 to 40 minutes. Remove cake from oven, and let cake cool completely.

Whipped Cream

  • In a medium bowl, whip cream until soft peaks form. Add sugar and continue whipping until it forms stiff peaks. Gently fold in the bourbon and vanilla extract. Chill until ready to assemble the cake.

Peaches

  • In a medium bowl mix together the peaches, bourbon, sugar, and cinnamon. Let it sit out for at least a half hour, or refrigerate for several hours so that the fruit takes on the flavor of the bourbon mixture.

Assembly

  • Once the cake is completely cooled, spread the whipped cream over the cake in an even layer. Top with the peach mixture. Serve immediately, or keep covered in the refrigerator until serving.
