Peach Crunch Coffee Cake
Peach Crunch Coffee Cake is an awesome coffee cake. It’s a double layer recipe with two layers of coffee cake, two layers of peaches, two layers of streusel, then a layer of pecans and a powdered sugar icing on top. It’s quite wonderful and not overly difficult since it starts with Bisquick baking mix. The texture is crunchy because of the pecans and streusel, yet this coffee cake is also moist because of the peaches in the batter.
I love peaches, but when I had bushels of them coming off my peach trees I had to think fast and figure out ways to use them up quickly before they all got eaten up by squirrels or fell off the trees. This was one of the first recipes in my recipe file. It’s one I clipped from an old Bisquick booklet circa late 1970s or early 1980s. Bisquick was a fairly new product then and the makers were trying to show ways to use it in recipes.
This recipe was actually one for apples, but since it was peaches I needed to use up, I decided to follow the recipe fairly closely except to substitute peaches for the apples. It was a stunning success. The coffee cake turned out very tasty.
This was another one of those terrific desserts I sent with John to his office a couple of weeks ago. Many of the departments are used to getting my Christmas cookies every year, but they were all pleasantly surprised when some of my cakes and cobblers came there way. It was like Christmas in August! 🙂 John brought the empty plates back that night! And there were plenty of very happy campers at his work place!

You and your family are sure to enjoy this cake whether you enjoy it for breakfast or dessert…an afternoon or midnight snack…or every hour in between. 🙂
