All the flavours of summer in loaf cake form! There are two tricks that make this dreamy peach cream cheese standout from the crowd; studding the batter with chopped peaches adds extra flavour and texture and infusing the icing with fruit syrup provides a delicate floral note that will have those lucky enough to try it coming back for more.
