Peach Blueberry Cake


For the dough:

3 cups all-purpose flour

1 cup sugar

2 tsp. baking powder

½ tsp. salt

16 tbsp. cold, unsalted butter, cut into cubes

2 large eggs

2 tsp. vanilla extract

For the filling:

¾ cup sugar

3 tbsp. all-purpose flour

2 tbsp. quick-cooking tapioca

5-6 peaches, pitted and cut into 8 pieces each

1½ cups blueberries

1½ tbsp. freshly squeezed lemon juice


Preheat the oven to 375° F.   To make the dough, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in the bowl of a food processor fitted with a metal blade.  Pulse just to combine.   Add in the butter chunks and pulse until the butter forms small bits about the size of peas.  Add the eggs and vanilla and pulse again until the dough clumps together and forms a ball.

Transfer the dough to a 9-inch springform pan.  Press the dough evenly all the way up the sides of the pan, and cover the bottom completely.  Chill the pan in the refrigerator for about 10 minutes while you prepare the filling. 

Stir together the sugar, flour and tapioca in a large bowl.  Mix in the peaches, blueberries and lemon juice, and toss gently to coat the fruit.   Spoon the filling into the prepared pastry dough.  Cover the pan loosely with foil.  Place the springform pan on a baking sheet in case any juice leaks out during baking.  

Place in the oven and bake until the filling is bubbling in the center and the crust is golden, about 1 hour and 45 minutes.  Transfer the pan to a wire cooling rack and let cool at least 20 minutes.  Carefully remove the sides of the pan.  Let the cake cool until just warm, then cut and serve with vanilla ice cream as desired.
