Whole Wheat Peach Coffee Cake Whole Wheat Peach Coffee Cake Whole Wheat Peach Coffee Cake Whole Wheat Peach Coffee Cake

This is a recipe that I made up as I walked home from work one day. As far as I know, it is original. I hope you will try this moist peach cake and tell me what you think.















½ cup butter, unsalted
melted and divided
2 cups whole-wheat flour
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups peaches
up to 3 cups, ripe
1 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large eggs
2 tablespoons brown sugar
for sprinkling optional


Pour ¼ cup melted butter into a square or round glass baking dish , spreading to completely coat the dish.

Place sliced peaches in baking dish and stir to completely coat with butter. Pour butter-coated peaches into a medium bowl and set aside. The baking dish should have a nice buttered coating.

Place flour, soda, sugar, cinnamon and salt in a large mixing bowl and combine thoroughly. Make a well in the center of the mixture.

In small mixing bowl, mix buttermilk, vanilla, egg and remaining ¼ cup butter until thoroughly blended. Pour into the well of the flour mixture and stir lightly until just blended. Do not over mix.

Spread ½ of the batter into the baking dish. Spread peaches onto the batter. Spread remaining ½ of the batter over the peaches. Sprinkle with 2 tablespoon brown sugar and a sprinkle of cinnamon, if desired. Bake uncovered in 350℉ (180℃) oven for 50 minutes.

Let cool. Serve warm or at room temperature.

I can't believe I left out a key ingredient. Strike it up to being a newbie to the online recipe world. I've inserted 1 cup of sugar in the ingredients now. Thanks for pointing it out and ENJOY!

Have you tried it with All Purpose white flour?

over 9 years ago

Coffee cake is usually made with all-purpose flour, so it should be perfectly delicious when you make it with all-purpose white flour. Especially the one I made with whole wheat flour still came out super fluffy and tasty, so if you make it with white flour, it should be even more fluffy :-)
