Peach Coffee Cake - The Southern Lady Cooks

Peach Coffee Cake is wonderful. Your family and guests will love it. It keeps well for several days in the refrigerator. You can eat it cold or warm it in the microwave. I love anything with peaches and pecans. You could serve this for dessert, too.

Peach Coffee Cake Ingredients Needed:

2 (15 ounce) cans sliced peaches

All-purpose flour

Baking powder

Baking soda


White granulated sugar


Butter, softened

Sour cream


Peach juice

Vanilla extract

Swirl Ingredients for Peach Coffee Cake

Brown sugar

Ground cinnamon

Ground nutmeg

Pecans or walnuts

Glaze Ingredients for Cake

Powdered sugar


You could use frozen peaches or fresh peaches instead of canned and just increase the milk in place of the peach juice in the recipe. Either way you make it this cake is a great way to start the day. I believe it would be just as delicious topped with ice cream. I love it warm out of the oven, and the glaze is just enough to take this coffee cake to the next level.
