Servings: 12
Prep Time 30 minutes
Cook Time 50 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 20 minutes



  • 1 1/4 cups (175g) all-purpose flour (scoop and level to measure)
  • 1/3 cup (74g) packed light-brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup (74g) granulated sugar
  • 1 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup (4 oz) unsalted butter, melted


  • 1 1/2 cups (214g) all-purpose flour (scoop and level to measure)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 lb peaches at room temperature, peeled, cored and sliced (about 3 medium sliced into 10 slices each)
  • 3/4 cup (170g) granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup (4 oz) unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup (80g) sour cream
  • 1/3 cup (80ml) buttermilk

Vanilla Glaze (optional)

  • 1/2 cup (66g) powdered sugar
  • 1 Tbsp half and half or milk
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9-inch springform pan with non-stick cooking spray.

  2. To make crumbs:
  3. In a mixing bowl whisk together flour, brown sugar, granulated sugar, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and salt until well blended (break any clumps of brown sugar up with fingertips). Pour in melted butter and using a rubber spatula, fold mixture until evenly moistened. Set aside.
  4. To prepare cake:
  5. In a separate mixing bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt for 20 seconds, set aside (peel and slice peaches now if you haven't already). In the bowl of an electric stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, whip together butter and granulated sugar until pale and fluffy.

  6. Mix in eggs one at a time adding in vanilla with second egg.

  7. Add 1/3 of the flour mixture to the butter/egg mixture and mix just until combined, then pour in buttermilk and mix just until combined. Mix in another 1/3 of the flour mixture and mix just until combined, then mix in sour cream. Finish by mixing in last 1/3 of the flour mixture and mix until nearly combined, then remove bowl and scrape bowl and fold batter just to combined.

  8. Pour batter into prepared pan. Top evenly with peaches then evenly sprinkle crumb mixture into very small crumbles over peaches.

  9. Bake in preheated oven until center of cake is set (it shouldn't jiggle or sink when touched, and toothpick should come out free of batter), about 50 - 55 minutes. Cool on a wire rack (you don't need to cool entirely, this cake is really good warm), then drizzle with glaze if desired.

  10. For the glaze:
  11. Whisk together powdered sugar, half and half and vanilla in a bowl until well blended. Add more half and half to thin as desired or more powdered sugar to thicken if needed.

    Thank you so much for this receipe! I made this today with peaches from a can (because they are not in season in my country right now), and it turned out absolutely delicious, with perfectly moist cake and crunchy crumble topping.

  • Swati

    Hi, I just discovered your website and am loving it! Quick question about the cake- can I make it with tinned peaches? Fresh ones are not readily available where I live (India) or can I substitute it with another fruit?

  • Jeri

    I made two of these last night for this morning’s breakfast. One for my family and one for friends who were returning late last night from vacation. It is delicious! Perfect with a cup of coffee.

  • Barbara

    I made this yesterday. I was having friends over for dessert. Received rave reviews. This cake is absolutely delicious.

  • Jessie

    I made this over the weekend and it was delicious, but the middle came out close to raw after almost an hour in the oven. I have an oven thermometer, so I know the temp was steady at 350. It was obvious that it wasn’t done in the center, but I pulled it anyway for fear that I’d burn the rest. We just cut out the center and it was still more than enough for my family of four. My kids said we should just call it the donut cake. :) Any ideas what went wrong?

      I’m not sure what would have happened other than maybe your peaches were much juicier than the ones I used? Next time maybe a little less peaches and crumble would help. Sorry that happened!

    • Rebecca

      I had the same issue – after 50 minutes the center was very wet and I don’t think the issue was the peaches (they weren’t as ripe as I was hoping and not very juicy when I cut them). I ended up baking it for another 25 minutes. Smells wonderful, though, and I AM looking forward to trying it.

        Hopefully it turned out! Room temperature peaches may be the difference so I’ve added that above.

  • Laura Dembowski

    This cake is perfection! I’d eat it for any meal and probably wouldn’t want to share :)
