Peach Coffee Cake Recipe

  • 1 (29 ounce) can sliced peaches, drained and chopped
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 2 lemons, zested
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease an 8×8 inch baking pan.
  2. In a saucepan over low heat, mix the peaches, brown sugar, cornstarch, and 3 tablespoons vegetable oil. Cook and stir until sugar is melted and mixture is slightly thickened.
  3. In a large bowl, mix the flour, sugar, baking powder, and lemon zest. Stir in eggs, vanilla, 1/2 cup oil, and orange juice. Mix until smooth. Pour 1/2 the batter into the prepared pan. Layer with 1/2 the peach mixture, then with remaining batter. Top with remaining peach mixture.
  4. Bake 45 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
