Fresh Peach Breakfast Cake


This is an easy breakfast or coffee cake that can be pulled together in minutes and is very moist and delicious. It isn’t too sweet so it would be great for breakfast, or along with a coffee for a mid-morning break. I actually had no plans to add this recipe to the site and soon after baking had cut it into squares to freeze. My husband loves to offer anyone that comes into our house (delivery men, carpenters, plumbers etc.) a cup of coffee and a sweet so I always try to have something handy. If I know someone will be at the house working and will therefor be offered a “coffee break” by my husband this is the perfect snack to have ready as I can pull a couple of squares out of the freezer in the morning and they are ready for guests, unexpected or not. Peaches are presently in season, and I always seem to buy too many of them when we make our weekly market runs so I am too often looking for new ways to use up my surplus supply. This cake turned out even better than I expected it to so I decided to share the recipe after all.
