I’d eat this peach cake for breakfast, dessert, snack time or in a house with a mouse. Seriously, peach coffee cake is for all circumstances and all seasons.

A moist coffee cake filled with peaches and covered in both cinnamon streusel AND a sweet glaze? Yes, please.

If you like peach cobbler and coffee cakes, you’re going to get a big kick out of this peach cake recipe!

I am so thankful right now. Do you just have days where you feel overwhelmed with all the good in your life? Even when things are far less than ideal, sometimes it’s nice to reflect on the positives.

While you’re having those silent reflections, may a suggest a slice of this Peach Streusel Coffee Cake? With a hot cup or coffee or tea, it’s a great way to enjoy your morning!

Or end your day. Or take a break in the middle of the morning or afternoon. You get the idea. You just need a peach cake as good as this in your life!

Coffee Cakes are one of my favorite treats to have around because they’re appropriate for any time of day. Being able to offer a piece of coffee cake–whether it’s pumpkin, peach or chocolate chip–to a guest always makes me feel like I’m winning the hostess Olympics, too.

While I’m usually perfectly content with a coffee cake that just has a simple streusel topping, this time I decided to take things a step further. The glaze on this cake is so easy to whip up and adds a perfect finishing touch of even more cinnamon flavor and moisture!

Peach Cobbler Cake

This cake is great for the indecisive. If you can’t decide between a peach cobbler and a peach coffee cake, make a peach cobbler cake!

The cake uses peach pie filling so you can make it any time of year. No need to wait until peach season (although you’re going to want to make it then, too). With the perfect ratio of juicy peaches to moist spice cake, every bite is better than the last.

Ingredients

For this recipe, I made the cake from scratch with these ingredients:

{Ingredients listed at a glance; scroll down for amounts with the full recipe.}

  • Flour
  • Sugar
  • Eggs
  • Unsalted butter
  • Milk
  • Baking powder
  • Baking soda
  • Cinnamon
  • Salt
  • Vanilla
  • Peach pie filling

For the streusel topping, you need:

  • Brown sugar
  • Cinnamon
  • Unsalted Butter
  • Salt
  • Nutmeg
  • Flour

And, last but not least, here’s what you’ll need to make the peach coffee cake glaze!

  • Powdered sugar
  • Cinnamon
  • Milk

How to Make Peach Cobbler Cake

STEP 1. Make the peach cake batter

Grease and flour (or spray with cooking spray) a 13×9 baking dish and set aside. In a mixing bowl, beat flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt on low until blended.

Beat in softened butter until crumbly. Add in eggs, vanilla and milk and beat for several minutes until fluffy and fully combined. Pour batter into prepared baking dish.

Top that batter with peach pie filling.

STEP 2. Make the streusel crumb

Combine the sugar with cinnamon and salt. Mix in melted butter, flour and nutmeg with a large fork until crumbly. Sprinkle evenly over peach layer.

Bake cake in a preheated 325 degree F oven for 55-60 minutes.

STEP 3. Add the glaze

Whisk the sugar, cinnamon, and milk together until smooth. When cake is removed from oven, pour glaze over warm cake. Let the peach cake cool before slicing and serving!

Tips & Tricks

  • Serving peach cake: This cake is delicious on its own, especially with a cup of coffee. To serve this as a more decadent dessert, it’s also wonderful with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on the side.
  • How to tell when peach coffee cake is done baking: Unlike other cakes, a toothpick inserted into the center won’t come out clean when the cake is done baking, due to the juicy peach layer. The cake is ready to come out of the oven when the streusel topping is evenly golden brown. Check at 55 minutes and if it doesn’t look quite golden, leave it in for up to 5 minutes more.
  • How long does peach cobbler cake last? The cake will keep for about 5 days at room temperature, if kept covered. When I make it, we tend to eat slices for dessert one day, then breakfast the next. . . so it rarely lasts the full 5 days!
