If you want to turn a simple coffee cake into something more colorful and Summer-ish, this recipe is perfect for you! This is the best coffee cake for the Summer: with generous amounts of blueberries, apples, and peaches – all together in one cake! The top of the cake is richly covered with crunchy cinnamon crumb topping. Then, it’s drizzled with the vanilla glaze! This is one of the best coffee cakes you’ll ever taste! It’s especially wonderful if devoured the same day it’s baked!
It’s baked in a springform pan, which makes it easy to release the cake and still keep its pretty shape! I like to line the bottom of the springform pan with parchment paper, which ensure even cleaner release from the bottom portion of the pan – see detailed instructions below.
Because the cake has a crunchy crumb topping, it is at its very best if consumed within several hours after it’s baked and cooled. The streusel keeps its wonderful texture for the first 24 hours – so, if you plan to eat this cake within 24 hours, cool the cake completely, then just loosely cover the cake with parchment paper, leaving spaces for air – this will allow the top of the cake to stay nice and crunchy!
If you plan to store the cake longer than 24 hours, store it in an air-tight container (or wrapped in plastic) at room temperature for 2days, or in the refrigerator for 5 days. Make sure to cool the cake completely before storing it. Keep in mind that the crumb topping loses some of its crunchiness when the cake is stored longer than 24 hours, but it still tastes wonderfully delicious!
Here is a little overview (in photos!) of important steps in the making process of this cake. Fold in some sliced apples and peaches directly into the batter:
