For the Topping:

Preheat the Oven and Prepare the Pan:
Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour a 10-inch bundt pan or tube pan and set aside.
Make the Pound Cake Batter:
In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy.
Beat in the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract.
Combine Dry Ingredients:
In a separate bowl, sift together the all-purpose flour, baking powder, and salt.
Alternate Adding Dry Ingredients and Milk:
Gradually add the dry ingredients to the creamed mixture, alternating with the milk, beginning and ending with the flour mixture. Mix until just combined.
Prepare the Peach Cobbler Filling:
In another bowl, toss together the peach slices, granulated sugar, flour, cinnamon, and nutmeg until the peaches are evenly coated.
Layer the Batter and Filling:
Spoon half of the pound cake batter into the prepared pan, spreading it evenly.
Spread the peach cobbler filling over the batter in an even layer.
Top with the remaining batter, spreading it carefully to cover the filling.
Make the Topping:
In a small bowl, mix together the granulated sugar and ground cinnamon for the topping.
Bake the Cake:
Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar topping evenly over the cake batter.
Bake in the preheated oven for 60-70 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
Cool and Serve:
Allow the cake to cool in the pan for 10 minutes before transferring it to a wire rack to cool completely.
Slice and serve the Peach Cobbler Pound Cake warm, accompanied by a scoop of vanilla ice cream, if desired.
- Feel free to adjust the amount of sugar in the peach cobbler filling according to the sweetness of the peaches and your personal preference.
