Peach Coffee Cake Recipe

Have you ever heard of the Peach Truck? It’s a big white truck from Georgia that visits different cities and sells fresh peaches. One of my favorite June activities is heading out to pick up a box of peaches. Picking up a peach and taking a juicy bite is the best way to eat a peach, but this cake is a close second.

Breakfast Cake Recipe

This peach coffee cake makes the perfect breakfast cake recipe. It has a brown sugar & cinnamon flavor, which we all know are two 100% acceptable breakfast foods. Then buttery sugar crumb topping will melt in your mouth and adds just the right of sweetness when paired with a cup of coffee.

Cake with Canned Peaches

This cake can be made any time of the year, fresh peaches or not. If you use canned peaches, be sure to drain the juice off the peaches before you add them to the cake. If I use canned peaches, I like to use peaches that were packed in juice instead of heavy syrup. You’ll get a more authentic flavor that way.

Cake with Fresh Peaches

If you’re lucky enough to have freshly ripened peaches available, switch out the canned peaches for fresh. You’ll want to peel the peaches and use about 2 cups of chopped (or thinly sliced) fresh peaches. Nothing beats that taste!

Coffee Cake Glaze

The last part of this cake is the glaze. Unfrosted cakes are always better with glaze and it doesn’t get any simpler than powdered sugar glaze. Just mix together powdered sugar, milk and a touch of cinnamon, then drizzle it over the cooled cake. Mmmm…

Tools to Make This Cake

  • Springform Pan: Always watch for what size springform pan to use in each recipe. This recipe calls for a 9” pan.
  • Pastry Cutter: I use this tool all the time. It cuts butter into flour perfectly for streusels, crusts and other pastries.
  • Saigon Cinnamon: This is our favorite cinnamon. You can’t beat its flavor!
  • Cake Plate<: I have this cake plate and everyone loves it! It comes with the cute server too.

I love getting peaches from the peach truck!
Can you freeze the peach coffee cake or would it be better to use frozen peaches ?
Would you freeze the cakes before or after baking?
