My style of summer baking is simpler than at other times of the year. Unlike the holidays (when I break out rich and decadent dessert recipes) or autumn (when I crave time in the kitchen, turning to complicated yeasted breads), now is when I want easy but satisfying recipes. I want to be baking in the sun at the beach, not in a hot kitchen—but I still love the meditative ritual of baking, so I do it anyway.

If you're like me, now's the time to turn to recipes that make the most of summer produce without obscuring the bright, ripe, fresh flavors. Look for recipes that don't require a million bowls or steps. Find recipes that are worth turning the oven on for, like today's raspberry peach butter cake.

This cake is an excellent example of a way to elevate perfect summer produce. I use raspberries and peaches, but any stone fruit or berry will work nicely. You could use all berries if you like: a mix of blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries is wonderful.

At first glance, the recipe looks like a basic butter cake. But it's not! The blank canvas of a butter cake is a fantastic foil for fruit, but I've tweaked the master template a bit to create a cake with a little more flavor in the batter. For the liquid, I use a mix of coconut milk and regular milk (whole or 2% are best). A touch of nutmeg adds a tiny bit of spice to the batter along with vanilla bean paste (you can use vanilla extract instead).

Chickpea Butter Is a Thing Now (But Isn’t That Just Hummus?)

  Chickpea Butter Is a Thing Now (But Isn’t That Just Hummus?) As alternatives to the ever-popular peanut butter, consumers have seen almond butter, sunflower butter, cashew butter, and even pistachio butter. As it turns out, chickpea butter is absolutely nothing like hummus, as one company that sells chickpea butter, The Amazing Chickpea, explained to The Daily Meal. Chickpea butter attempts to mimic the texture and flavor of dense nut butter, much thicker than hummus or another chickpea spread. Tasters have described it as stickier and more satisfying than hummus, with a pleasantly sweet aftertaste.

But the best part of this recipe is the crumb: tender and moist, it sticks pleasingly to your fork and keeps beautifully over a day or two. To achieve such a good texture, I use part butter and part fresh goat cheese. Creaming the fresh goat cheese with the butter and sugar gives the cake great moisture and also adds a slight tangy flavor.

Make this cake your weekend plan. Stop at the farm stand, or the market, or the grocery store, and pick whatever fruit looks best. Bake it, and revel in the simple and fleeting pleasure of peak fruit season. And cake season—because it's always cake season.
