Peach Snack Cake

March 3, 2014Teresa

Peach Snack Cake is a delicious coffeecake recipe I’ve been making for years. It’s quite simple too, since you just stir everything together for the cake part, then you have a streusel topping  made with brown sugar, coconut and pecans, and a marvelous icing for the top. Yum.

The cake layer even uses canned peaches (and juice) so it’s a recipe you can make year round. The interesting thing about this recipe is it uses half a can of vanilla frosting in the batter instead of sugar. The juice from the peaches is also incorporated so that’s where the cake part gets sweetened. Then you mix the remaining frosting with a little water to thin it and use it for the icing on top. It’s an ingenious recipe I found years ago off the back of a box or recipe for frosting (back in the days before frosting was premixed and canned).

Back in the late 1970s and 1980s, John’s office had a staff meeting every Friday and all the staff would rotate bringing in home baked goodies for breakfast. I used to make this recipe frequently for those occasions because John always came home saying how much everyone enjoyed this delicious coffeecake. So when I was making up goodies for our Ladies’ Conference a couple of weeks ago I decided to put this scrumptious recipe on the menu.

If you’re looking for an easy coffeecake recipe for special occasions, holiday baking, or just because you like coffeecake, then Peach Snack Cake is a wonderful recipe to try. It’s filled with luscious flavors and has all the nice crunch and texture from the coconut, pecans and peaches that you love in a coffeecake. So take the plunge and give it a try!
