Peach and blueberry Coffee Cake is an irresistible dessert that you’ll make over and over. A dense and moist fruit filled cake that’s great for brunch or dessert. A rich flavor that’s not too sweet. Great with fresh or frozen fruit.
I haven’t been making many desserts lately, all I really crave in the summer is fruit. With both girls home for a couple of weeks, I thought I would try this out on them. Peach and Blueberry Coffee Cake is full of fresh fruit and isn’t too sweet. Well, it was so good, that I have to admit, I had three slices after dinner. I sliced the rest and froze it to keep from eating the whole thing. Everyone loved this, even Taylor who isn’t a big fan of cake and they were pretty disappointed when I told them I had frozen half of it to give to a friend. It was unbelievably easy and comes out of the pan perfectly every time I’ve made it. I just love when a recipe turns out so good without any tweaking needed.
The fresh peaches and blueberries that I found at our favorite fruit stand probably helped, but this would still be wonderful with frozen fruit. Most cakes with greek yogurt or sour cream are super moist and this was no exception. The combination of moist cake and fruit were the perfect summer dessert but since it’s not too sweet it would be great for a brunch or breakfast meeting. There is a cup of sugar in the cake but given the size, that’s not too bad. It’a not overly sweet at all and what you mostly taste is the fruit. Natalie wanted to top it with canned whipped cream, which I hate to admit was pretty good. I’m a bit of a snob and always make my own whipped cream, but it was more fun using the canned version. It has real whip cream in the photos.
I’m normally pretty good at eating desserts in moderation. However, the first time I made it, I ate three slices while it was still warm, and the next day when I took the photographs, I had to eat one more slice before freezing it, that’s how good this is!
I recently made it for some friends who came over for dinner and Lily, who’s an amazing artist, helped with the photos. She has a great eye.
