A light, summery cake featuring fresh nectarines.

Recipe Ingredients for Nectarine Cake

1 cup flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1 stick unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cups sugar
2 large eggs
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1/8 tsp. almond extract
3 nectarines, pitted and cut into wedges
1/2 tsp. grated nutmeg

Recipe Directions for Nectarine Cake

  1. Heat oven to 350F. Lightly butter the pan, making sure to get into the grooves between the bottom and the sides.

  2. Beat together butter and sugar until fluffy and a pale yellow color. You could use an electric mixer to do this, but my preferred low-tech method is to use a whisk and some serious muscle.

  3. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each. Beat in extracts.

  4. Add combination of flour, baking powder, and salt slowly, about 1/4 cup at a time. Mix until just combined, being careful not to overbeat.

  5. Spread batter into the pan evenly, then artistically arrange the nectarine slices on top of the batter. Or you can arrange them to fit the most nectarines possible onto the cake. Which is what I did.

  6. Stir together nutmeg and 1/2 tbsp. sugar in a small bowl, then sprinkle over the cake. Bake until golden-brown and firm, about 45 minutes. Let cool in pan for about 10 minutes, then remove the sides of the pan.
