Vanilla Peach Coffee Cake

Hello Fellow Thrifters and Friends,
    I signed up to make dessert for my book club, and I knew that I was going to try something new just for fun. I bought a spring form pan years ago, but have always been a little intimidated by it for some reason. I decided it was time to use my pan and make a yummy coffee cake and get over my silly fear.

Vanilla Peach Coffee Cake 

Recipe via Pines Cones and Acorns


2 eggs
1 C milk
1/2 C oil
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 C sour cream
3 C flour
1 C sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking soda

5 or 6 large peaches, diced.
3 Tbsp. butter, melted
11/4 C brown sugar
1Tbsp. cinnamon
2 tsp. nutmeg
4 Tbsp. flour

Vanilla Icing:
1 Tbsp. butter
1 tsp. vanilla or vanilla bean paste
3/4 C powdered sugar
2-3 tsp. heavy cream


Prepare 9 inch spring form pan with cooking spray. Preheat oven to 350. Beat eggs on medium for 1 minute. Add oil, vanilla, milk and sour cream then beat for another two minutes. In separate bowl, mix flour baking soda, baking powder, salt and sugar. Add this dry mixture to the wet and mix for a few minutes until well incorporated. Do not over mix. Pour the batter into the spring form pan.

Peach filling: In separate bowl, mix the peaches, melted butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and the flour. Evenly distribute the mixture over the batter.

Icing: Mix vanilla, powdered sugar and vanilla in a bowl, it will be lumpy so don't worry. Slowly add heavy cream a little at a time until the frosting is the consistency you like.

Bake for 1 hour and 5- 10 minutes. I recommend checking this cake after about 55-60 minutes, the add additional time if not done. When a toothpick or skewer poked into the center comes out clean the cake is finished.  Let cake cook and then drizzle with icing. 

Now its time to sit down with a cup of warm coffee and another good book and enjoy a piece of this yummy cake. ENJOY!
