Here I am (finally) with the recipe for Peach Crumble Cake that I promised you a few days ago. The thing about this cake that makes it a must-bake is the crumble. If you love streusel topping, you absolutely have to try this cake. Seriously, it is the best crumble (or streusel) I have ever had. The ingredients for the topping are pretty basic…but the amount is what sets this recipe apart. There is a ton…I briefly considered not using it all but I decided there was no such thing as too much streusel! I piled it on and oh my gosh. It’s amazing.There is a layer of fresh peaches between the cake and the topping. It’s delicious but if you wanted to leave it out you would have the perfect crumble-top coffee cake. The sour cream in the cake is, of course, what makes it so moist.
I baked this Wednesday evening and just as I was ready to pour the batter in the pan, my dad called. He told me my mom was having chest pains and they were leaving for the hospital. When she got there a cardiac team was already waiting. I guess God wasn’t ready for her yet because she made it through the catheterization, a stent was installed and in a matter of few hours it was all over. She’s home and other than being very tired, she is doing well.
I stuck the bowl of batter in the refrigerator just before I flew out the door to go to the hospital. I baked it the next day and surprisingly it turned out great.
It’s a perfect fall day here in Ohio. I hope to enjoy it a bit today and I hope the same for you. Happy weekend…
