Peach Coffee Cake

Fresh, sweet peaches combine with cinnamon and a hint of ginger in this Peach Coffee Cake! A generous, buttery streusel and simple confectioner’s sugar glaze top this summery breakfast cake!

Based off of our Lemon Poppy Seed Coffee Cake, this Peach Coffee Cake is a summery variation that is just as irresistible.

I’ve found that I don’t bake with fresh peaches nearly enough. The problem is that they usually get eaten fresh before I have a chance to bake with them! 

However, one bite of this coffee cake was enough of a reminder for me to buy more peaches than we can eat fresh the next time I’m at the store!

That same juicy, sweetness that we love from fresh peaches is found in this coffee cake. (Make sure you use ripe, sweet peaches to get maximum peach flavor. If your peaches aren’t ripe enough, the cake will end up tasting bland.)

A simple coffee cake base is spiced up with cinnamon and ginger and filled with chunks of fresh peaches (peeled or unpeeled. . .it’s up to you!).

Topping it all off is a generous layer of streusel. No coffee cake around here is complete without a streusel topping. The crunchy, buttery sweetness is a must!

A simple confectioner’s sugar glaze is drizzled over the warm coffee cake right before serving.

You can serve the cake warm or cool. We’ve found that we actually liked it best after it had cooled and the flavors had a chance to blend.

How to Make Peach Coffee Cake

Making this coffee cake is simple. You whisk together your dry ingredients. Cream together the butter and sugar, and beat in the rest of your wet ingredients.

Add the dry ingredients to wet ingredients until just combined. Fold in your peaches, and the base of your cake is done!

Whisk together the dry ingredients of your streusel topping, and cut in the butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Spread it over the top of the batter, and bake.

When the cake is done baking, stir together the ingredients for the glaze until smooth. Drizzle over the top of the warm cake. Wait impatiently for the glaze to harden, and serve!

Tips for Making Peach Coffee Cake

  • Stir the chopped peaches into the batter until just combined. Over-stirring the batter will cause the texture to become dense.
  • You can make this cake in a 9×13 inch baking dish. Just know that the streusel layer will be significantly thinner. Start checking for doneness at around 30 minutes.
  • The sweeter your peaches, the sweeter, more flavorful the cake. If your peaches don’t have any flavor, the cake will lack flavor, too.
  • Tossing your peaches with a bit of flour right before folding into the batter helps to prevent all of your peaches from sinking to the bottom of the cake.
  • Does it look like the top of the coffee cake is getting too brown before the cake is ready? Cover the cake with aluminum foil for the remainder of the baking time.
