How to use peach juice

1. Uses for peach syrup

  1. Pour a tablespoon of syrup into tea or orange, lemon infusions or other fruity drinks. You will add sweetness and an extra fruity flavor to the drink.
  2. Apply it in natural yogurt, if you want with pieces of fruit. It's a great way to sweeten yogurt, and it makes a delicious snack or dessert.
  3. Without a doubt, a most ideal use to take advantage of the syrup from canned peaches is to use it in baking, to make sponge cakes. Syrup is the secret ingredient to make super juicy and sweet cakes . Therefore, I detail below how to use the syrup in the cakes and I leave you a recipe with it.

The syrup is ideal for sweetening yogurt or a yogurt breakfast with fruit, and is perfect for preserving cut fruit.

4. Peach syrup can also be used as a sauce for desserts . Heat it in a saucepan over medium heat, add a little cornstarch to thicken it (a teaspoon or dessert spoon) and you will have a delicious sauce to accompany ice cream, cakes (and biscuits) or fruit.
5. To preserve fruit: syrup, given its sugar-rich nature, is a perfect preservative. So you can use it when you have cut extra fruit or have not finished all that you have served on the table, when you want to cut fruit in advance of a meeting or to make a cake and you do not want it to oxidize. You only have to add the syrup in an airtight container and put the cut fruit inside. It is a great way to preserve it (and prevent it from oxidizing), and when you go to drink it, it is sweet and children and adults take it wonderfully. That fruit preserved in syrup is also ideal for adding to yogurt.
6. To make fruit salad : fruit salad is often served with orange juice, but you can also use peach syrup! You just have to pour a few tablespoons on top of the prepared fruit salad.
7. Peach syrup can be used as a delicious sweet base to make a sauce for peach chicken .
8. Store it in an airtight container and use it to brush your fruit tarts (like an apple or strawberry puff pastry tart), or your sponge cakes. You will see that you provide that fruity and sweet touch that rounds out the cake, and also helps it to be brighter and more beautiful.
9. When serving crepes and pancakes : serve your crepes and pancakes with a little fruit and, just as you pour a little honey, you can pour a little peach syrup (not too much, or they will become moist too much). That sweetness and soft peach aroma tastes delicious.

Use the syrup to sweeten crepes and pancakes, and to brush your cakes and biscuits.

2. Instructions on how to use syrup in cake recipes

A simple yogurt cake can be an extra moist cake if you use the syrup from peaches in syrup. Here I leave you the theory that I know for take advantage of the juice of peaches in syrup :


  • The syrup can be substituted with the same amount of sugar as the recipe (that is, if the recipe has 2 cups of sugar, you can replace 1 of them with 1 cup of syrup).
  • It is not recommended to replace 100% of the amount of sugar, because the dough would be too liquid and it is difficult to know how much more flour would be needed to compensate for it. It is better to use the syrup to replace only part of the sugar, and also with the intention of providing a certain fruity aroma to the cake.
  • Another interesting use of syrup is brush the cake : you can use the syrup to moisten the cake a few minutes before taking it out of the oven, or after it is baked and cooled. Prick the cake several times with a fork and pour the syrup over the top. This will make the cake more juicy and with a subtle delicious peach flavor.

3. Recipe for yogurt cake with syrup

Applying the theory that I just told you, here is the recipe that so many of us know for yogurt cake, but using peach juice in syrup:


  • 1 natural yogurt
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 measure of sunflower or mild olive oil yogurt
  • 1 measures sugar yogurt (normally, without syrup, I would use 2 measures)
  • 1 measure of peach syrup yogurt
  • 3.5 measures of flour yogurt (without the syrup I would only use 3)
  • 1 sachet of yeast


Mix everything with a whisk, put it in the mold and bake at 170ºC, and at the end brush everything with more syrup that you have saved.
*I don't like to add vanilla when I make the cake with syrup, because personally I find the flavor of vanilla and peach clashing. What is great about the cake, if you want versions of it, is:
  • Chocolate chips
  • Replace the baking flour with almond flour (1 part or completely)
  • Add macadamia nuts (I love them with the peach flavor), pecans or California walnuts
  • orange scratch
  • A measure of carob flour or cocoa yogurt (I reduce half a measure of flour then)
If you have not yet used the peach syrup, I hope you are encouraged to try it, because it is a good way to use it.
I hope you found these tips interesting. I'd love to know if you have more uses or theories to get the most out of the syrup!
