peach streusel coffee cake

6.20.2010

We've been in heaven with the abundant number of farmers markets around Montgomery. After discovering Hampstead's, I heard about another one in Eastchase on Saturdays. My husband and I couldn't help it but we ended up with way too many peaches than we can eat. So what would you do with one too many peaches? Well, I made cake!

streusel ingredients:
  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 6 tbsp cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
cake ingredients:
  • 1-1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 egg
  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1-1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp almond extract
  • 1 lb peaches, peeled, pitted and sliced 1 inch thick
    directions:
    1. preheat oven to 350 degrees F. grease and flour a 9-inch round spring-form pan.
    2. to make streusel, in a bowl, stir together the flour, brown and granulated sugars and cinnamon. add the butter and, using a pastry blender or fingers, cut or rub in the butter until coarse crumbs form. set aside. 
    3. to make cake, in a bowl, stir together the flour, granulated sugar, baking powder and salt. in another bowl, using an electric mixer on medium speed or a wire whisk, beat egg, butter, milk, vanilla and almond extract until creamy, about 1 minute. add to the flour mixture and beat until evenly moistened. there should be no lumps or dry spots. do not over-mix. 
    4. spoon the batter into the prepared pan and spread evenly. if using a spring-form pan, arrange peach slices in concentric circles from the pan sides to the center. gently press the slices into the batter. sprinkle evenly with the streusel. 
    5. bake until the topping is golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean, 40 to 45 minutes. transfer the pan to a wire rack and let cool for 20 minutes. remove the sides of the spring-form pan. serve the cake warm or at room temperature.
