Peachy Sour Cream Coffee Cake

I ♥ Peaches!!

I recently found this recipe and knew I would have to try it! I'm so glad I did! I see a flaws in the picture but there's nothing wrong with the flavor of that cake! My daughter had a friend here for the afternoon and she smelled this baking and kept coming to the kitchen asking if it's ready to sample. I thought that was kinda cute so when I took her home I sent a piece with her. She was happy!☺

Streusel Topping and Filling:
2 cups chopped nuts
1/3 cup brown sugar
3 Tablespoons white sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon


1 cup brown sugar
½ cup white sugar
3 teaspoons cinnamon

This is what I used so that my family would help me eat it!☺

½ cup butter, softened
1 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
2 cups flour
1 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups fresh peaches,
peeled and sliced

Mix streusel ingredients and set aside. In a mixer bowl cream sugar and butter until fluffy, scraping down sides as needed. Add eggs and beat well.

In a separate bowl, whisk together dry ingredients. Add to creamed mixture. Mix. Add sour cream and vanilla.

Beat until smooth. Scrape down sides to make sure it's mixed evenly. Avoid over beating.

Spray a 9 inch Springform pan with non-stick spray and spread half of batter evenly on the bottom.

Sprinkle with 1 cup streusel mixture. Top with remaining batter and ½ cup of streusel .

Bake @ 350° for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and arrange peeled, sliced peaches on top of cake; sprinkle with remaining streusel.

 Bake an additional 45- 65 minutes. I had to go to 65 minutes because of the oven I was using. After 45 minutes I should have set the pan onto a cookie sheet to prevent the bottom from getting too brown. It didn't taste bad, but it was darker than I would have preferred.

The finished cake.

See what I mean about the bottom being brown?

But it was super delicious anyway, served warm with ice cream!

Can't wait to try this one again!

Let's I owe someone a favor?

Be Blessed!☺
