Peaches cream Coffee Cake

If you like cake for breakfast………..then this coffee cake recipe is for you!

This past weekend my family headed to Kentucky for a family wedding and I stayed  home… an empty house. Well, empty as in just me and the dogs.

I cleaned the house Friday evening and it stayed clean until they returned on Sunday.

36 hours of a clean house, I can’t lie, I enjoyed it.

I had no one to answer to, no one to pick up after, no one filling up the sink every time I’d empty it and no one to share the TV with.

Then I got this picture.

and I missed them……messes and all.

TidyMom and family

ok, so hubby was going to surprise me and take flat TidyMom along, and he forgot her, so I photoshopped her in! haha

So I decided to bake.  I knew they’d be getting home in the wee hours on Sunday, so why not have a delicious coffee cake, laced with peaches and cream waiting for them when they walk thru the door.

So tie on those aprons, I’m going to show you how easy it was!

(full recipe is at the end of the post)

Alrighty, grab a 9″ springform pan and be sure to lock it and give it a good coat of no stick spray.  Mix the dry ingredients, and removed one cup to set aside for topping.  Add egg yolks and cream and mix until smooth, then gently fold egg whites by hand.

Pour that delicious batter into your springform pan, top with a can of peach pie filling, sprinkle with the cup of crumb mixture you had set aside and then she’s ready for the oven!

While the cake is in the oven, I use that time to clean up the mess I’ve made in the kitchen, and make the icing.  You could also make the icing while the cake cools.

Melt the butter and a little vanilla. (can’t wait to share my homemade vanilla with you soon)  Slowly add to powdered sugar and stir, it will be very crumbly.  Add about 3 tablespoons of cream, then slowly add more cream one tablespoon at a time until you have a smooth and creamy consistency.

After about an hour, you can remove the cake from the oven!  Allow to cool for five minutes then remove from pan.

After it cooled some, I transferred my cake to a 10″ cardboard cake board and drizzled icing over the top, allowing it to run down the sides.

I couldn’t resist, and enjoyed a piece while it was still slightly warm!

If no one is home when you eat coffee cake for dinner, will anyone KNOW you ate coffee cake for dinner?

PS – my clean house was short lived…….in no time at all my sink was like this again

  1. I made this for Easter and it was absolutely delicious! Not only that, but I live in high altitude and didn’t have to make any adjustments. That’s a true winner in my book. Thanks!!!

  4. It looks delicious! I will try it, but I have a question, when you said 1c. brown sugar packed…. you mean…. cup? thanks!

  5. LSU goes back to school tomorrow and I made this for the student workers in the on-campus research lab I run. Of course, I made a teeny tiny one for me and the Mister too. It’s delicious!

  6. Do you beat the egg whites before you fold them into the batter? Thanks. Recipe sounds great!!!

  7. Could I make this using fresh peaches? Would it be too dry, since I imagine the pie filling has extra liquid that seeps into the cake? Thanks!

  8. Hey, i like your pictures a lot (and the recipe). I was wondering what sort of camera you use?
