Ripe, juicy peaches, crumbly topping and sweet icing make this Fresh Peach Coffee Cake the perfect summer breakfast treat!
I really had no other reason to make this fresh peach coffee cake than I just wanted to. It’s peach season, the sun is shining, and I wanted a delicious breakfast cake to have in the morning at work!
Do I really need any more reason than that?
Nope. Sure don’t.
So this coffee cake is subtle in flavor in the cake, but the peaches pack a huge flavor punch! I honestly don’t know which part I like more, the juicy peaches inside or the crumbly goodness on top.
And let’s be honest here, I don’t always eat a lot of what I bake… but I didn’t share more than one piece of this peach coffee cake with my family!
In fact, I put a big DO NOT EAT sign on it so they’d stay out and I could enjoy a piece every morning until it was gone.
I’m still dreaming about this cake…
Maybe I should make another one.
