Yet another of Baltimore’s sickly sweet creations, peach cake is a classic. This rectangular treat is topped with fresh peach slices and a thick glaze that seeps into the cake, making it extra moist and delicious. There is a balance that must be struck between moistness and soupiness, but quite a few places in Baltimore get it just right.
You know that Hoehn’s Bakery uses only fresh peaches on their cake because it’s a seasonal item—you’ll only find this sweet treat here in the summer. But when you do, snatch it up. The slices are enormous so you’ll get more bang for your buck!
Simon’s Bakery bakes up lots of yummy goodies, from marshmallow donuts to crispy sugar cookies, but their peach cake, well…it takes the cake. It’s a bit outside of the city, but worth the trek because it tastes so fresh and light.
You can find Simon’s Bakery at 582 Cranbrook Rd.
The peach cake here is done in the confection-style, which is a favorite of German immigrants in Baltimore. For those who have a raging sweet tooth, this should be your go-to. It’s also wonderfully moist!
