Maybe you could call this guilt-free pound cake?   The secret to the perfectly balanced peach flavor is peach Greek yogurt. It gives it a nice, moist, yet very delicious flavor.

With this cake you have the option of adding in an additional 1/2 cup of diced peaches, just for extra peachy-ness. It’s delicious and perfect without it and will be delicious and perfect with it.

To make it more healthy I used coconut oil rather than vegetable oil.

This recipe easily comes together with peach yogurt.  It adds a delicious peach flavor and makes the pound cake more moist. You will need two 5.3 oz. containers or 1 cup. My favorite brand is Chobani® but you can use any brand you prefer.

For this recipe don’t use the yogurt with fruit on the bottom. Plain peach flavored yogurt is all you need.

Gorgeous.

Be sure not to over cook the pound cake, otherwise, it will be dry.  Start out by cooking it 45 minutes, if it’s not done cook 5 more minutes. Each oven is a little different so you may even need to cook it 55 minutes, depending on how big your loaf pan is.
