We have one peach tree in our yard. Every year we hope for, and look forward to, a lot of peaches. This year, we have so many that the limbs are breaking off of the tree. Even after a late-season hail storm, we still have more peaches than we know what to do with. As a result, I use a lot of peaches this time of year. Recently, I made this Peach Coffee Cake with Oatmeal Crumb Topping using fresh peaches.
August 2019, I am updating this post with new photos and a step by step guide how I made this Peach Coffee Cake.
To begin with, are the ingredients we need for this recipe, fresh peaches (2 or 3) peeled and diced. Flour, sugar, brown sugar, oats, Greek yogurt (or sour cream), vanilla, egg, butter, salt, baking powder, and spices.
How to make Fresh Peach Coffee Cake
To prepare the coffee cake, add the egg, Greek yogurt or sour cream, sugar, vanilla, and melted butter. Whisk well.
Next, you need to add the flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and cardamom. Mix just until blended. Add the peaches and gently fold them in. While the batter is very thick at this point, everything will be fine once the peaches bake in. This coffee cake is surprisingly moist.
Spread the coffee cake batter into a 9-inch baking pan that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.
Make the crumb topping
In order to make the crumb topping, I just use the same bowl I used for the batter. After all, I’d rather not dirty more dishes than necessary. Add the flour, brown sugar, oats, cinnamon, salt, and melted butter. Then mix it together. Really, it’s that easy!
Finally, sprinkle the crumb topping onto the coffee cake and bake in a 350-degree oven for 35-45 minutes. Or, until golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the center.
Of course, the downside is waiting for the coffee cake to cool slightly before cutting, but once it is ready, enjoy!
This delicious coffee cake is just one of the many things we have made with peaches so far this year.

Peach Coffee Cake with Oatmeal Crumb Topping
For the Coffee Cake
1/2 cup Sugar
1/4 cup Butter, melted
1/2 cup Greek yogurt or Sour Cream, I like the Vanilla Greek yogurt
1 teaspoon Vanilla
1 Egg 2 teaspoons Baking Powder
1 1/4 cups Flour
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoon Cinnamon
1 teaspoon Cardamom
2 cups Peaches, peeled and diced
For the Crumb Topping
2/3 cup Oatmeal
1/3 cup Flour
1/3 cup Brown Sugar
1/4 cup Butter, melted.
First, mix together the sugar, butter, sour cream, vanilla, and the egg. Add the flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and cardamom and stir just until combined. Then, fold in the peaches. This coffee cake batter will be thick.
Pour mixture into a 9-inch baking pan that has been sprayed with non-stick spray.
Mix together all the ingredients for the crumb topping, and spread over top of the coffee cake. Bake in a 350-degree oven for 35 – 45 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean when poked in the middle. The crumb topping will also be a nice golden brown. Cool slightly, serve.
Both Greek yogurt and sour cream work well in this recipe.
If the peaches are not juicy, you may want to cut back the flour just a little.
I have also made this in an 8″ springform pan. Very nice presentation, but it does take a little bit longer to bake.
