Ingredients

Dry Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups wholewheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

Liquid Ingredients

  • 6 tbsp butter (softened)
  • 1 cup brown sugar + 1 tablespoon (for peach on top)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2/3 cup 2% milk fat Greek yogurt

Topping

  • 2 large peaches (sliced into wedges)
  • 2 tsp powdered sugar (for decoration)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F with rack in middle. Grease the side and the bottom of the springform pan with butter or cooking spray.
  • DRY INGREDIENTS: Sift flour, baking powder, baking soda, together into a medium bowl.
  • LIQUID INGREDIENTS: In a separate bowl, beat butter, sugar, and 2 eggs until very light in color and fluffy, 2-3 minutes on high speed. Add vanilla and Greek yogurt and continue beating until very creamy and light in color, for about 1 more minute.
  • Keeping the mixer speed low, mix in the DRY INGREDIENTS into LIQUID INGREDIENTS until combined. Do not overmix.
  • Transfer the cake batter to the springform pan. Top with sliced peaches. Sprinkle the fruit with 1 teaspoon granulated sugar.
  • Bake until cake turns golden, and the tester comes out clean in the center, about 1 hour, depending on your oven.
  • When the cake is done baking, let it cool (still in the baking pan) on a wire rack for 15 minutes. After cake has cooled for about 40 minutes, release the cake from the springform pan. 
  • Sprinkle with powdered sugar on top.
