Tasty Tuesday

          I'm such a sucker for a pretty cake! Even more so when you can eat it for breakfast and get away with it! This beauty caught my eye on Pinterest this morning and I was not surprised it came from Tidy Mom as so many good recipes do! So, since I'm late with this post again, I know, it won't become a habit, I promise, but trust me here, bake up this yummy coffee cake, brew a pot of joe and take it outside to celebrate the new season!! Welcome spring!!!

Peaches & Cream Coffee Cake

  • 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 c. brown sugar, packed
  • 3/4 cup butter, softened
  • 2 eggs, separated
  • 1 cups heavy whipping cream (or milk)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 2-1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 can (21 oz.) Peach Pie Filling (I like Luck Leaf)
  • for icing
  • 1 Tbsp. butter
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 3-5 Tbsp. heavy whipping cream (or milk)
  1. Preheat oven to 350°
  2. Mix flour, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and butter (will be crumbly). Take out one cup of this and save for topping.
  3. Mix egg yolks with cream and add to remainder of flour mixture. Add salt and baking powder and mix until very smooth.
  4. Gently fold in egg whites.
  5. Pour into greased springform pan.
  6. Put pie filling evenly over top of batter. Sprinkle with crumb mixture.
  7. Bake for 55-65 minutes. Until lightly brown on top.
  8. Allow to cool for five minutes then remove from pan.
  9. Drizzle with vanilla icing.
  10. For the Icing:
  11. Melt butter in microwave, then add vanilla.
  12. Slowly stir in powdered sugar. (will be clumpy)
  13. Add 3 tablespoons of cream (or milk) stir until creamy and smooth. Add more cream 1 tablespoon at a time until right consistency (runny enough to drizzle over cake).

  5. Your cake looks soooo good! I need something to get me going in the mornings but regular breakfast food often is not appetizing to me. This cake with coffee sounds great. I will be making this one soon. If you join Linky parties and would want to join in Your Cozy Home Party on Mon. at 8, I would love to have you. Details on my blog if you are interested.--------Shannon
