Peach Coffee Cake with Vanilla Glaze – light and fluffy Greek yogurt cake baked with lots of peaches on top (mixed with brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg), and topped with creamy vanilla glaze. One of the best peach coffee cakes you’ll ever taste!

Pour the vanilla glaze over the still warm cake for best results – so creamy, and melt-in-your-mouth delicious!

I made this cake using the springform baking pan – it’s perfect for a coffee cake (and no, there is no coffee in this cake, but this cake does taste great with a cup of coffee which is why it’s called coffee cake). Start by making the actual Greek yogurt based cake batter (use full fat Greek yogurt for richer cake texture):

Top the cake batter with 4 or 5 sliced peaches, mixed with brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg.  Peaches mixed with all those spices taste so good, even without the cake.  I kept restraining myself from eating too many of them.

Bake the cake at 350 F on the middle rack for about 45 minutes to 1 hour, until the cake looks like this (yes, all the peaches you just put on top of the cake will sink perfectly into the middle):

Peach Coffee Cake with Vanilla Glaze

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 45 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour

Yield: 1 cake, using 9x3-inch springform pan

Peach Coffee Cake with Vanilla Glaze


    Peach Filling:
  • 4 peaches, diced
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • Cake:
  • 1 and 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 stick butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt (full fat)
  • Vanilla Glaze:
  • 1 tablespoon butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 4-5 teaspoons heavy cream


  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  2. Peach filling:
  3. In a large bowl, mix the sliced peaches, melted butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and the flour until well combined.
  4. Cake:
  5. Sift flour, baking powder, baking soda, together into a medium bowl.
  6. In a separate bowl, beat butter, sugar, and 2 eggs until very light in color and fluffy, 2-3 minutes on high speed. Add vanilla and Greek yogurt and continue beating until very creamy and light in color, for about 1 more minute.
  7. Keeping the mixer speed low, mix in the flour mix until combined. Do not overmix.
  8. Transfer the cake batter to the springform pan. Top the batter with the peach mixture.
  9. Bake at 350 F on the middle rack until cake turns golden, and the tester comes out clean in the center, about 45 minutes to 1 hour, depending on your oven.
  10. When the cake is done baking, let it cool (still in the baking pan) on a wire rack. After cake has cooled for about 30 minutes, release the cake from the springform pan.
  11. Vanilla Glaze:
  12. In a small bowl, combine softened butter, vanilla extract, powdered sugar and 2 tablespoons of heavy cream milk - mix until creamy. Add 1 or 2 more tablespoons of heavy cream to get the desired consistency for the glaze (thick but spreadable).
  13. Drizzle the vanilla glaze over still warm cake.

    What should the oven temperature be?

  • Nancy February 27, 2016, 10:50 am

    Hi, what oven temperature do you use to bake this cake? I do not see that listed in the instructions. Thank you.

      I was searching for the same thing? Will google similar receipts I guess.

  • Denise June 18, 2016, 4:30 pm

    I cooked it at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. It turned out great.

  • Kelly July 29, 2016, 8:20 pm

    This looks delicious! Do you think it would freeze well??

  • Betty August 5, 2016, 7:11 pm

    Made the cake and it sunk in the middle when cool. We ate it anyway, and it was delicious, but what did I do wrong?

  • Teresa August 29, 2016, 2:43 am

    Hello, this cake must be really delicious! I can not wait to prepare myself .
    A doubt ….. heavy cream: teaspoons or tablespoons?
    Thank you!

    The recipe worked well, but it was incredibly sweet. I would make again, but cut the sugar in the peach mix by half.

    This sounds amazing! I have a funny inquiry though, do you think that if I skipped the vanilla glaze & put a crumb cake crumble topping on it instead that it would be good?

    • Deebi27 July 12, 2017, 1:12 am

      Either way, I think it would be yummy!
