Prep Time: 10 minutes Cook Time: 45 minutes Servings: 12-16 slices


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 3-4 fresh peaches, peeled, pitted, and sliced

For the Streusel Topping:

  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, cold and cubed
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour a 9×13-inch baking pan.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy.
  4. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract.
  5. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, alternating with the sour cream. Begin and end with the dry ingredients. Mix until just combined.
  6. Spread half of the batter into the prepared baking pan.
  7. Arrange the sliced peaches over the batter in the pan.
  8. In a small bowl, mix together the streusel topping ingredients (brown sugar, flour, butter, and cinnamon) until crumbly. Sprinkle half of the streusel over the peaches.
  9. Carefully spread the remaining batter over the peaches and top with the remaining streusel.
  10. Bake in the preheated oven for 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  11. Allow the cake to cool in the pan for about 15 minutes before transferring it to a wire rack to cool completely.
  12. Slice and serve. Enjoy your delicious Fresh Peach Cake!
