Peach Cobbler Coffeecake

My mom's cherry coffeecake is one of my favorite things, to make, and to eat. When I had some peaches sitting around recently, I decided to try to adapt that recipe to using fresh peaches. A quick google search proves that I was not alone in that idea - so I combined a few concepts to come up with this coffeecake. This could also be called bars, or just plain cake, but by calling it coffeecake, I feel more justified in eating it for breakfast, which I did every day last week. (I also took this to work to share. It makes a big pan!)

Start by peeling the peaches (I boil them for a minute then put them under cold water, and the peel slides right off!) and then slicing them thinly. Place them in a medium bowl and top with the brown sugar and cinnamon.

For the batter, cream together the butter and sugar. Add in the eggs, yogurt, almond extract and vanilla,

and beat well until blended. Gradually add the flour and salt and mix until combined. Spread about 2/3 of the batter into a greased 15x10 pan.

Top with the peach mixture.

Now dollop the remaining batter over the top of the peaches.

Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the top is golden.

Let cool on a wire rack. To make the glaze, combine the powdered sugar, vanilla, almond extract and milk.

Whisk until the mixture is smooth and then drizzle over the cooled cake.

It looks amazing!

Because it's coffeecake, remember you can eat it for breakfast. Or any time for that matter.
