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!

Go ahead…poke your fork into a piece of warm spice cake lifting out sweet peaches topped with a generous crumb and creamy glaze.

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

    …I too get on those cleaning sprees and nothing makes me happier. And I feel your pain regarding how it stays clean ’til the husband returns and then it’s all ‘here we go again’…*giggle*shrug* ;o)

    …Thank you for doing what you do – it is great appreciated!

    …From one Missouri gal to another – blessings to you. :o)

  13. This cake looks AMAZING Cheryl, cute photo of your family!!

  14. HAHA! I’m dying. This is too funny.

    I have a soft spot for coffee cake… it’s something my mom used to make all the time and it reminds me of home. This looks absolutely stellar. Can’t wait to try this version.

  15. What a lovely photo of your family (love that you put in flat Cheryl). This coffee cake looks delicious and yes, I love cake for breakfast. I thought everyone did 😉

  19. I’m a morning cake lover, and this cake looks delicious! It perfect for anytime of the day 🙂 Already pinned! Have a wonderful week Cheryl 🙂

  20. I couldn’t be trusted to bake coffee cake like this if I were home alone – there would be nothing left when the family returned – not even tell tale crumbs!

  21. Your cake look scrumptious. I’ve never use peaches in my cake before and this is definitely something I wanted to try. I LOVE cake for breakfast, I mean, who doesn’t? 🙂 How nice to have a clean house, even for just a short period of time. I haven’t have a clean house for many years already! hahaha…

  22. This looks like the perfect coffee cake! I love when I can keep my house clean for more than 5 hours, it always seems like a miracle! At least it looks like they rinsed their dishes first, not always the case here!

  23. This looks so yummy! LOL about flat TidyMom. That must have been so strange to be alone for that long. I think the longest I’ve been alone since Abby was born was probably 6 hours. My Mom watched Abby while Dave was at work and I had the carpets cleaned. It was so quiet and clean. LOL!

  24. That coffee cake is GORGEOUS! I love peaches in breakfast goodies…yum!

  25. What a sweet mom and wife. Even when you had “time off” you didn’t put your feet up. Instead you were still thinking of your family and made them this beautiful coffee cake.

  26. Oh my gosh I know what you mean about the clean house! As much as I miss my husband When he’s traveling it’s so nice to have a clean house. 🙂

  27. Looks delicious!

  28. My gosh, this cake just looks so heavenly!! And a perfect start to the day… Yummy!

  29. Do you know how scary it is that a picture of YOUR sink looks almost exactly like MINE? I have the same McD’s Coke glass, and the same soap dispensers! It’s like you were in my kitchen! The cake looks so yummy! I’m going to have to try to make this soon!

  30. What a PRETTY coffeecake!!! I know you enjoyed your time ALONE, but were so happy to see their faces again! Love the girls posing with dad! 😉

  31. I’m a sucker for anything with a crumb topping – this looks fabulous!!

  32. I’m not sure what I like more. That gorgeous shot of the cake up top or that awesome family shot. I am definitely trying this cake soon though. If I have one sort of baked good I can’t pass up it is the coffee cake. Yum!

  33. Cake for breakfast? Yes, please. This looks incredible!

  34. Aah, bless, emty house is just not nice! The cake will definitely do the trick! Looks yum!

  35. That is one nice looking coffee cake!

  36. You found my weakness, Cheryl. I love peaches and cream *anything*. The answer to your question is no. Because you can deny deny deny and say you gave a slice to the mailman. 🙂

  37. Printing it off now! Thanks so much. It’s good to get some alone time now and again. It makes you appreciate them when they come back!

  38. Oh coffee cakes are my thing! this looks spectacular! I’m going to give this a try soon.

  39. yum, that looks so good! Especially that last cake picture, I am drooling!

  40. I’m getting hungry just looking at the pictures. You have some really yummy looking recipes that I want to try. That’s funny about the flat Tidy Mom. We did that with my family that lives 3,000 miles away. My kids’ flats spent Christmas with the family and they posed with them sitting at meals and socializing. It was a hoot.

  41. Yum! This sounds great! I wouldn’t mind eating this coffee cake for dinner!

  42. Sounds absolutely yummy! Looks fantastic, too!

  43. Thanks for the recipe! It tastes delicious, but I had a wee mishap while baking! Oy. The batter was everywhere!

  44. I made this last week and it was sooooooooooo good! I had so many compliments from my co-workers.

    2 quick questions:
    Were you supposed to beat the egg whites before you fold them in? I didn’t and it made the cake dense but still tasted delicious.
    And…do you think it would be as delicious with apple pie filling?
    Thanks…love your blog!

    • I had the same question about the egg whites… I finally went back to the original Lucky Leaf recipe, and the egg whites are supposed to be stiffly beaten.

    • first I think it would be fabulous with apple!
      second, I missed the step about beating and folding the egg whites, so I wrote the recipe the way I made it, so I think you could do it either way with good results.
