Today’s guest post is from Nicole at The Galley Gourmet.  Doesn’t her Peach Streusel Coffee Cake look delicious?  Can you pick peaches in your state yet?  Unfortunately, I can’t pick them until August (in Massachusetts).  I can’t wait to make this when they become available!  Yum!

 

 

If I had to pick one summer fruit that I couldn’t live without, it would have to be a peach. Growing up in the South, one could smell a peach stand miles away.  That sweet floral and fruity scent is unmistakeable.  Once at the stand, there would be bags filled to the brim with juicy, ripe peaches. And when I say juicy, I mean “bend the top half of your body and your eating arm forward-running down your arm and drip off your elbow” juicy.  Oh, what I wouldn’t give to get my hands on a good juicy Southern peach!  However, there still are some perfectly suitable peaches grown here in the Midwest.

 

This coffee cake is one we enjoy for a Sunday summer breakfast treat.  It is a tender cake flavored with vanilla and lemon zest.  The peaches rest atop the batter and a cinnamon streusel is sprinkled on top.  Baked until brown with some peach juices bubbling– this is one sweet slice of summer.

 

*One note– make sure you use ripe, but still firm peaches.  Keep those extra juicy ones for eating all by themselves.  Otherwise there will be too much moisture and the batter will not bake properly.
