Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Butter and flour a 9-inch springform pan. Combine peaches and 1/2 cup sugar in a medium saucepan over medium, stirring occasionally, until sugar is dissolved, about 5 minutes. Keep warm over low while preparing batter.

  • Place butter and remaining 11/2 cups sugar in the bowl of an electric stand mixer. Beat on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Beat in egg and vanilla. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl. Add dry ingredients to mixer bowl alternately with milk, beginning and ending with flour mixture. Beat well after each addition.

  • Spread batter evenly into prepared springform pan and bake in preheated oven for 40 minutes. Meanwhile, prepare streusel topping by combining flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, and butter in a medium bowl. Cut butter into dry ingredients using a pastry cutter until butter is pea-sized and mixture is very crumbly. Stir in half of the nuts. Sprinkle topping over coffeecake, then sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup nuts. Continue baking until a pick inserted in the center of cake comes out clean, about 25 more minutes. Remove from oven and let cool in pan 30 minutes. Transfer cake to a serving platter to serve warm, or to a wire rack to cool completely.
