Blueberry Peach Pound Cake

Hubby has been begging me to make blueberry pie for weeks now...but I just haven't had the time. Or maybe it's just the idea of having to roll out a pie dough that has been stopping me.  Either way I needed to come up with an alternative. So I started browsing online and came across the recipe below.  Moist, delicious and above all easy to make.  It was a winner! 

Blueberry Peach Pound Cake
(click for printable recipe)

1/2 cup butter, softened
1 1/4 cups sugar
3 eggs
1/4 cup milk
2 1/4 cups cake flour (I have substituted all-purpose flour and that works fine, too.)
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
2 cups fresh blueberries (can substitute frozen; do not thaw)
2 cups peeled, diced peaches (I cut into about 1/4-inch pieces)
Confectioner’s sugar, optional

In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar. Beat in the eggs, one at a time. Beat in the milk.
In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt.
Add the dry mixture to the wet mixture and beat until just combined.
Fold in the blueberries and peaches.
Pour batter into a greased, 10-inch Bundt pan, and bake at 350 degrees for 60-70 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
Cool in the pan for 15 minutes; remove to wire rack and cool completely.
If desired, dust with confectioner’s sugar.
