Peach Cake With Crumb Topping

Photo: Diana Rattray
The generous buttery crumb topping makes this peach cake taste like a peach crumble with a vanilla butter cake layer. This is a wonderful cake to enjoy with fresh peaches in season, but it's excellent with drained canned peach slices of frozen sliced peaches as well. Bake this heavenly cake for a summer gathering or cookout, Father's Day, New Year's dessert, Easter dessert, or for just about any other occasion.

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 45 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour, 5 minutes

Yield: Serves 8


  • 4 peaches, peeled, pitted, thinly sliced*
  • ***Topping***
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 6 tablespoons butter, melted
  • ***Cake***
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour, about 5 3/4 ounces
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 4 ounces (1/2 cup) butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract


*You may use about 12 ounces sliced frozen peaches, or use canned and drained peaches -- about 1 1/2 15-ounce cans -- in place of the fresh sliced peaches.

Grease and flour a 9-inch springform pan or spray with baking spray. Preheat the oven to 350°.

In a medium bowl, combine the 3/4 cup brown sugar, 3/4 cup flour, cinnamon, and the 6 tablespoons of melted butter. Stir with a fork until well blended and ingredients are moistened.

In another bowl, combine the 1 1/4 cups of flour with the baking soda and baking powder; set aside.

In a mixing bowl with electric mixer, beat the 1/2 cup softened butter with 1/2 cup granulated sugar until light and creamy. Add the eggs, sour cream, and vanilla and beat until well blended. Slowly beat in the flour, baking soda, baking powder mixture. Continue beating on medium-high speed until smooth. The batter will be quite thick.

Spread the batter in the prepared pan. Arrange the peach slices, close together, over the top of the batter.

Sprinkle the butter and brown sugar crumb mixture over the peach layer.

Bake the cake for 40 to 50 minutes, or until a cake tester or toothpick comes out clean when inserted in the center of the cake.

YUM!!!!!!!!!!, Member AliceHankin

This cake is soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo good! I especially love the cinnamon topping. I could actually eat this all day! I used yoghurt instead of sour cream, but it turned out just fine. I would definitely make this again. Thanks!
