Nectarine Golden Cake

Serving Size:Serves 8


  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon (rounded) salt
  • 1 stick unsalted butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup plus 1/2 Tablespoon, divided sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon pure almond extract
  • 2 nectarines, pitted and cut into 1/2 inch thick wedges
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated nutmeg



Impress your guests with this summery dessert. Serve with a dollop of fresh whipped cream.


Preheat oven to 350°F with rack in middle. Lightly butter 9- springform pan.
Whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt.

Beat butter and ¾ cup sugar with an electric mixer until pale and fluffy. Add eggs 1 at a time, beating well after each addition, then beat in extracts. At low speed, mix in a flour mixture until just combined. 

Spread batter evenly in pan, then scatter nectarines over top. Stir together nutmeg and remaining ½ tablespoon sugar and sprinkle over top. Back until cake is golden-brown and top is firm but tender when lightly touched (cake will rise over fruit), 45-50 minutes. Cool in pan 10 minutes. Remove side of pan and cool to warm.
