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

    …Hello, I always visit but rarely comment but I had to come out and tell you “thank you” for the laugh today and for the wonderful recipe! I loved how you photoshopped yourself in the photo – too funny! :o)

    …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)

    36 hours of a clean house? So jealous!! I get about 30 seconds right now before the kids destroy it.
    This coffee cake looks absolutely incredible! I love peaches. This one is bookmarked for peach season. Thank you!!!

    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.

    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 😉

    I think flat Tidy Mom is brilliant… but not as brilliant as this gorgeous coffee cake! Love it!

    Looks and sounds delish! Can’t wait to try it. The family photo is great!

    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!

  22. Alison @ Ingredients, Inc. posted on March 19, 2012 at 6:21 pm (#)

    You had me at Peaches! YUM!

  23. Amy Tong posted on March 19, 2012 at 6:49 pm (#)

    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…

  24. Erin @ Dinners, Dishes, and Desserts posted on March 19, 2012 at 8:00 pm (#)

    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!

  25. Jenny posted on March 19, 2012 at 9:09 pm (#)

    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!

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

  27. Jeanette posted on March 19, 2012 at 9:34 pm (#)

    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.

  28. Sylvie @ Gourmande in the Kitchen posted on March 19, 2012 at 10:05 pm (#)

    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. :-)

    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!

    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!

    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. :)

    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!

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

  42. Linda Norton posted on March 25, 2012 at 9:35 pm (#)

    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.

  43. Kristina Vanni posted on March 26, 2012 at 12:53 pm (#)

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

  44. Amanda posted on April 1, 2012 at 12:46 am (#)

    Sounds absolutely yummy! Looks fantastic, too!

  45. Trudy posted on April 1, 2012 at 6:33 pm (#)

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

  46. Brittany posted on April 2, 2012 at 11:46 am (#)

    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!

    • Terry replied on August 9th, 2012 at 3:30 pm

      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.

    • TidyMom replied on August 10th, 2012 at 8:54 am

      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.

  47. Adriana B posted on April 5, 2012 at 6:56 am (#)

    Made this pound cake for a card class yesterday and everyone loved it! SUCCESS! Thank you for sharing it with us :)

  48. Cyndi posted on April 7, 2012 at 11:12 pm (#)

    This looks so good…and I feel like it will make a perfect addition to Sunday brunch next weekend.

  49. Amy K posted on April 8, 2012 at 4:26 pm (#)

    I made this for our Easter brunch this morning – what a hit! Thanks for sharing this deliciousness!
