Before starting with the preparations, preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Secondly, mix together the dry ingredients in a large bowl: 3 cups of all-purpose flour, 1 cup of quick oats, 1 cup of brown sugar, 2 teaspoons of baking powder, 1 teaspoon of baking soda, and a pinch of salt.

Mixing the Batter

In another bowl, cream together half a cup of softened butter and one cup of sugar until light and fluffy. Then add in two large eggs, followed by three teaspoons of vanilla extract. Slowly mix in the dry ingredients to this mixture until fully combined.

Adding the Peach Filling

Mix together one 21-ounce can of peach pie filling that has been drained well with three-quarters of a cup of sour cream. Fold this mixture gently into the cake batter.

Making the Crumb Topping

To make crumb topping: Mix 1/2 a cup each of all-purpose flour and butter at room temperature. Add in one cup each of confectioners’ sugar and brown sugar, along with one teaspoon ground cinnamon. Rub this mixture between your fingers until small clumps form.


Next, pour half the batter into a greased 13×9-inch cake pan. Spoon half the peach filling over it followed by half the crumb topping mixture. Pour in the remaining batter on top followed by the rest of the peach filling and crumb topping.


Bake for approximately 45 minutes or until done. Serve warm or at room temperature as desired.

Are you feeling like experimenting with this Peach Cobbler Coffee Cake Recipe? Let me provide you with some substitution and variation ideas to make the recipe your own unique creation.

If you are looking for a healthier option, you can substitute some of the ingredients with paleo-friendly substitutes. For example, swap out the all-purpose flour for almond flour or coconut flour. Additionally, you can replace the sugar with maple syrup or agave nectar.

For a blackberry peach twist on this coffee cake recipe, substitute the canned peach pie filling with canned blackberry pie filling or use fresh blackberries instead of peaches. The result will be a berry-filled sweetness in every bite.

If crumb topping is your jam, add some to this coffee cake. Mix together 1/2 cup quick oats, 1/4 cup all-purpose flour, 1/4 cup brown sugar, and 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon to create a streusel topping. Cut in 1/4 cup cold butter and mix until the mixture is crumbly. Then sprinkle the streusel mixture over the cake batter before baking.

Looking to switch up the flavour profile? Add some instant espresso to make it a peach cobbler coffee cake or use another flavored extract such as almond extract, lemon extract or rum extract in place of vanilla extract.

If you do not have sour cream on hand, you can substitute it with Greek yogurt. This substitution will also give an extra tanginess to your coffee cake recipe.

Make-Ahead, Storing and Reheating

Just one bite, and you’ll be hooked for life.

The beauty of this Peach Cobbler Coffee Cake recipe is that it can be made ahead of time and stored without compromising the taste and texture of the cake. If you are planning to make this coffee cake for weekend breakfast or brunch, you can prepare it the night before and cover it with plastic wrap or aluminum foil. Then refrigerate until ready to bake.

If you have leftover coffee cake, you can store it in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 days. Alternatively, you can store it in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.

To reheat the coffee cake, preheat your oven to 325°F (160°C) and place the cake on a baking sheet. Cover the cake with foil and bake for about 10-15 minutes until heated through. You can also reheat slices of this delicious cake in the microwave for 15-20 seconds.

For those who want a quick solution, cut a slice off and use a toaster to warm it up until it’s crispy again resulting in that fresh-out-of-the-oven smell.

However, if you plan on storing your coffee cake for longer, freeze slices wrapped in plastic wrap tightly covered with aluminum foil. They will keep for up to three months if stored properly.

This Paleo Peach Cobbler recipe is also great since the peaches hold together beautifully both during baking and freezing to give you that juicy peach flavor bites every time you take a slice out of the freezer. Just defrost overnight in the fridge or microwave and enjoy!

Tips for Perfect Results

 Nothing beats a good cup of coffee and a slice of cake in the morning.
Nothing beats a good cup of coffee and a slice of cake in the morning.

When it comes to baking a delicious peach cobbler coffee cake, following the recipe is key. However, there are a few additional tips that can take your cake from good to great. Here are some tips to ensure perfect results every time you bake this delectable dessert:

1. Use Fresh, Sweet Peaches – Fresh peaches make all the difference in a cobbler coffee cake recipe. Choose sweet and ripe peaches and slice them into small pieces.

2. Cream the Butter and Sugar Thoroughly – It’s essential to cream the butter and sugar until they’re light and fluffy before adding other ingredients. This step ensures that air is incorporated into the batter and results in a more tender cake.

3. Make Sure Your Ingredients are at Room Temperature – Make sure your ingredients are at room temperature, especially the butter and eggs. Otherwise, they won’t mix well with each other, causing an uneven texture.

4. Use All-Purpose Flour for Best Results – All-purpose flour produces a tender crumb in cakes, giving them a light and fluffy texture. Avoid using cake flour or bread flour as they can produce a tougher texture or denser cake.

5. Be Precise with Your Measurements – When measuring your ingredients, be precise as possible. Invest in high-quality measuring spoons, cups and kitchen scales if you don’t have them yet.

6. Check the Cake Often to Avoid Overbaking – Overbaking can dry out the cake or burn the top of it. Check the cake frequently during baking; if you notice that it starts browning too quickly, cover it with foil.

7. Let the Cake Cool Fully on The Cooling Rack Before Serving – Allowing your cake to cool completely before serving can prevent it from falling apart while slicing it.

8. Experiment with Different Toppings – While the crumb topping is sweet and satisfying enough on its own, feel free to add blackberries, peaches or other fruits and nuts to the topping to add more flavor and texture to it.

Following these simple tips will ensure that you make one fantastic peach cobbler coffee cake. Enjoy your delicious dessert and feel free to experiment with new versions of it!


Now, let’s move on to the FAQ section, where I will answer some common questions and concerns about this peach cobbler coffee cake.

What makes coffee cake different from cake?

What sets coffee cakes apart from other cakes is their unique streusel topping and lack of frosting. Unlike other cakes, coffee cakes are often filled with fruit, nuts, or chocolate or have a swirl of streusel inside. While some may have a simple glaze on top, the emphasis is on the delicious and crunchy streusel topping.

Why isn’t my peach cobbler crispy?

It’s important to serve peach crisp soon after baking because the juicy cooked peaches underneath will cause the crispy topping to become softer over time. As the peaches release more juices, the topping will lose its crispy texture. So, it’s best not to let peach crisp sit for too long before serving it.

How do you increase the flavor of coffee in a cake?

As a barista, I’ve learned some tricks to make your coffee game strong. If you want to infuse your baked treats with a rich coffee flavor, try adding instant espresso powder to the batter. This is the most trouble-free way to achieve that distinct flavor.

Another way to amp up the coffee flavor in your baked goods is by adding a mocha swirl. It’s a simple and delightful technique that elevates the taste of your treats. Trust me; your taste buds will thank you.

Don’t stop there; why not pack the crumb topping with coffee, too? This technique adds texture and flavor to your dessert that will leave your guests impressed. Make sure to sprinkle it generously on top.

Lastly, indulge in a boozy latte glaze to finish off your dessert. It sets a warm and cozy tone and adds an adult twist to your creation. Don’t overdo it, though; a little goes a long way. Enjoy every bite and savor the complex flavors.

Can I add coffee to cake mix?

If you’re making chocolate baked goods, consider adding some instant espresso or coffee to enhance the chocolatey taste. When adding coffee, replace a portion of the water with strong brewed coffee to achieve better flavor.

Bottom Line

If you’re looking for a delicious coffee cake recipe that combines the flavors of a peach cobbler and a freshly brewed cup of coffee, look no further than this Peach Cobbler Coffee Cake Recipe.
