Homemade Peach Coffee Cake

A perfectly spiced peachy coffee cake with homemade peach pie filling, crumble topping and drizzled with icing.  This Homemade Peach Coffee Cake tastes amazingly delicious served right out of the oven.  It’s also a great way to use up any peaches you having growing outside or from the grocery store.  Peaches are one of my favorite fruits that I cannot seem to get enough of so baking with them makes for the best desserts.

Sweet, juicy summer peaches made into homemade peach pie filling never tasted so good!  I swear, if no one was watching, I’d just eat the peach filling right out of the saucepan.  Now, top it with a scoop or two of vanilla ice cream and it’s dessert!

 But, before we do that, let’s get back to this coffee cake.  If you have never made peach pie filling before, you’re missing out on the good stuff.  Let’s talk pie filling for a minute.  Dice a few peaches up, toss in a saucepan with water, sugar, cinnamon, vanilla extract and cornstarch.  Simply heat it up and take in the yummy cinnamon aroma coming from your kitchen.  Seriously guys, peach pie filling, it’s easy, it’s delicious and it’s best homemade with a pinch of love!  If you don’t have time to make the pie filling, you most certainly can use canned peach pie filling from the grocery store.

    The recipe says fold in the egg whites but never mentions whipping the egg whites, do you just fold in two un-whipped egg whites or is there an omission in the recipe steps?

      Hi Laura, go ahead and gently whip them just a little and then fold them in.

    Hi! Clarification on the icing ingredients and directions listed in your Homemade Peach Coffee Cake recipe would be helpful to me. The Icing ingredient list calls for 1 and 1/2 Tablespoons water + 1/3 cup powdered sugar, but step 14 in the directions calls for adding 3 Tablespoons of cream after the icing is already made???? Thanks for your help.

      Either water or cream may be used. If using cream, you’ll need a little more. If using water, use less. I will update the post. Thank you pointing the error out.
