Peach Coffee Cake with Pecan Streusel

Peach Coffee Cake with Pecan Streusel

1 Review
From:, May 2019

This fresh peach coffee cake with pecan streusel would be lovely for a summertime brunch or afternoon tea. A combination of Greek yogurt and buttermilk in the batter makes for a moist and tender cake, and swapping out all-purpose flour for white whole-wheat flour ups the nutritional value without affecting the taste or texture of this delicious coffee cake.

  • Baking spray with flour
  • ½ cup chopped pecans
  • ⅓ cup packed light brown sugar
  • ¾ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2½ cups white whole-wheat flour, divided
  • 1 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup plain low-fat Greek yogurt
  • ½ cup buttermilk
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1½ cups peeled fresh peach slices (from 2 peaches), plus more for serving


  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Use baking spray with flour to generously coat bottom and sides of a 9-inch springform pan.
  2. Combine pecans, brown sugar, cinnamon, ½ cup flour and ¼ teaspoon salt in a small bowl. Add melted butter; stir gently until crumbly. Set streusel aside.
  3. Place the remaining 2 cups flour in a large bowl. Whisk in baking powder, baking soda and the remaining ¾ teaspoon salt.
  4. Whisk eggs, yogurt, buttermilk, granulated sugar, oil and vanilla in a separate bowl. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients; stir to combine.
  5. Transfer the batter to the prepared pan. Arrange peach slices on top of the batter, leaving a 2-inch space in the center. Top with the reserved streusel.
  6. Bake until lightly browned and a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean, 50 to 55 minutes, covering loosely with foil after 30 minutes to prevent excessive browning. Let cool in the pan on a wire rack for 30 minutes. Remove the pan sides and serve with additional peach slices.
  • Equipment: 9-inch springform pan

Just made with 2 minor changes: 3T butter and NF yogurt. Turned out great! Pretty and sturdy w/extra peaches. Hoping it will last to test it's flavor tomorrow, but my kids are in town...
