Summer Stone Fruit Cake

Summer Stone Fruit Cake is a great treat the whole family will love- So Let’s Eat Cake! It’s a dessert made without any refined sugar so you can feel good about eating it!

One of our favorite things during summer is eating and slurping juicy peaches and nectarines. Farmers’ Market’s have a huge assortment and varieties of all kinds of stone fruit.  Stone fruits are those that have a pit inside them: peaches, nectarines, plums, apricots and cherries. Bite into these colorful gems and their juicy goodness starts to drip all over.

These deliciously sweet fruits are packed with tons of benefit for our bodies. Rich in vitamins A, C, K, potassium, carotenoids, beta-carotene, antioxidants, and insoluble fiber all helping to maintain healthy eyes, skin, brain function, digestion, immune function and more.  Carotenoids’ antioxidants give fruit their vibrant colors and become more available to our body when cooked. So feel good about eating this low sugar, super moist cake. Here’s where you can have your cake and eat it when it comes to a healthy-ish dessert or snack. Create your own masterpiece by mixing all the varieties of this season’s fruit.

Besides biting into stone fruit’s juicy goodness, here are a few other recipes  your stone fruit tastes great in: peach plum fruit crisp a morning peach basil smoothie or our nectarine burrata for a great salad or appetizer!
