“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


  • 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
