Peach Coffee Cake

Deliciously moist peach coffee cake recipe. Perfect with a cup of tea or coffee!

Peach Coffee Cake

Hey! How was your weekend?

Mine was super hectic with lesson planning and other general school related stuff. Not that I'm complaining: I love being busy. But every once in a while, I feel like I need to wake up and smell the coffee cake.

And in my summer season nostalgia (already??), I am making a peach coffee cake.

Even though I bought cans and cans of pumpkin puree, I am not quite ready to use them (though I have no qualms about buying pumpkin flavoured things from coffee shops!). I am not quite done with the summer flavours.

So as a smooth transition into fall, I am baking up a comforting coffee cake that is busting with diced peaches. The best of both worlds really!

I probably shouldn't have baked such a huge cake this particular weekend. My boyfriend is gone for the week to this math conference in Germany, so I am here all alone with a very large coffee cake.

So it looks like I have all of my breakfasts and desserts ready for the next week! There is no such thing as too much cake.

And don't forget the streusel topping! My favourite part about coffee cakes is the streusel topping, and this one is just perfect. I just want to crumble it on top of everything: muffins, doughnuts, french toast... the possibilities are endless!

But for now, I have a weeks worth of cake to eat. I better get started now.

  1. Oh wow! That's the sort of cake I want to just dig into the pan with a spoon. And yeah, streusel is awesome :)

  2. That's my kind of cake..that buttery cinnamony topping is totally irresistible.

  3. Would love to bake with peaches... the cake looks amazing...

  4. This looks fantastic. And I love that it makes a big pan because I am obsessed with coffee cake. I would totally have this with a huge mug of coffee.

  5. Love everything about this... Especially that streusel topping!! :)


  6. Awh poor Cathleen stuck with a whooole cake to herself ;) If anything it is an awesome excuse for having friends over for coffee :)
    This sounds epic though! I love fruity bakes, and I have only once made a cake with peach in it - and come to think of that; it was lovely!
    This could be a new alternative to banana bread that I just have to make :D Thanks for the recipe Cathleen. I hope you are having less of a hectic weekend this time around :)
    I myself have moved in with my boyfriend which was stressful (next time a van will be hired!) but it's lovely to finally be sharing a flat :) xx
