Difficulty

You will be able to bake an outstanding peach streusel cake, even though the recipe is very simple.

Baking tools

A hand mixer, two bowls and a square or rectangular baking pan are needed.
We used a 26 x 40 x 4 cm rectangular one.

Steps

1. Prepare peaches

Weight Ingredient
500 g Peaches
  • Take the peaches and cut them 2 to 3 cm squares
  • Afterwards put them aside until the dough is finished

2. Grease Baking Pan

  • Grease a baking pan with butter on bottom and all sides

3. Mix – Dough

Weight Ingredient
120 g White sugar
7,5 g Vanilla sugar
6x Eggs
225 g Butter – Softened
5 g Lemon juice
375 g All-purpose flour
15 g Baking powder
0,5 g Salt
500 g Peaches
  • Mix all of the mentioned ingredients together with a hand mixer
  • Start with the sugar, egg and softened butter until creamy
  • Rinse the lemon under hot water and dry it off, squeeze out the juice and add just 5 g of it to the mixture (keep the rest for the glaze)
  • Add the all-purpose flour, baking powder and salt step by step while mixing further
  • Afterwards add the previously cut peaches and carefully fold them in or wait until the dough is in the baking pan and then sprinkle them on top of it
  • Pour the whole mixture in the greased baking pan and spread it evenly
  • Tip: If you take your butter directly out of the fridge, you can cut the butter in smaller chunks into a bowl and melt in the microwave for about 30 seconds to soften it

4. Mix – Streusel

Weight Ingredient
225 g All-purpose flour
110 g White sugar
150 g Butter – Softened
7,5 g Vanilla sugar
0,5 g Salt
  • Mix all of the mentioned ingredients together with a hand mixer using dough hooks until well combined
  • Create streusel by taking the dough into your hand and crumbling it over the dough in the baking pan

5. Bake

  • Preheat oven to 170°C (338°F) for ~20 minutes with the circulating heat function
  • Put the baking pan in the oven on the middle rack and bake for 40 minutes
  • After baking take your finished peach streusel cake out immediately, but keep it in the baking pan

6. Cool

  • Let the cake cool in the baking pan for about 30 minutes

7. Glaze

Weight Ingredient
125 g Powdered sugar
Lemon juice
  • Fill a small bowl with powdered sugar
  • You will have to decide how thick you want the glaze to be because the less lemon juice you add the thicker the glaze will be
  • Therefore take the rest of the lemon juice that you made during the mixing of the dough and just a bit of it to the powdered sugar and stir until well combined
  • If you want to have the glaze less thick, just add a bit more juice and stir again until well combined
  • After you get your preferred thickness pour the glaze over the peach streusel cake and spread it evenly
  • Wait at least 30 minutes and check if the glaze has hardened enough
  • If not, just give it some more time

Conclusion

Taste

This streusel cake basically has it all. It is soft and fluffy. At the same time it is also crunchy, thanks to the streusel on top.
This gives a nice contrast you would not expect from the look of the cake.

While the cake is of course sweet, it is not unpleasant or intrusive.
