Fresh peach coffee cake is a soft moist cake topped with fresh peaches, crumble topping and icing. It is great to make on lazy Sunday mornings.
Fresh peach coffee cake is a basic quick coffee cake and goes great with a cup of coffee, tea, or a cold glass of milk. I just love these quick coffee cakes that can be whipped up, baked and eaten in under an hour.
I have been making easy quick coffee cakes for as long as I can remember. It was a great treat for a Sunday morning when our kids were still living at home. I would make a large pan of any kind of quick coffee cake and it was gone before I knew it.
Now that peach season is winding down I knew that I had to make a coffee cake with some of the summer’s delicious peaches before they are gone.
There have been some really amazing peaches this summer. I have enjoyed just slicing them up and serving them fresh. I have taken some in my lunch for work and enjoyed every bite. It will be sad to see these fresh peaches disappear, but then there is always next year.
If you have been around this blog at all you know that I love a good crumble. This coffee cake has a crumble, but I decided to top the crumble with a cinnamon and ginger icing. The cake, peaches, crumble, and icing comes together for a delicious breakfast treat or an afternoon snack.
I hope you try this fresh peach coffee cake before the end of the peach season.
