Peachy Coffee Cake

We made this coffee cake the other morning and it was so delicious. You can use any type of flour you like...I used 1 cup rice flour and 1 cup spelt flour just to mix it up a little.

1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
1 cup yogurt or 1/2 cup milk
2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
dash salt

Beat butter and sugar together, add egg and yogurt and beat again until combined. Measure out dry ingredients into bowl on top of egg, butter, sugar mixture. Stir until just combined. Spread this mixture into the bottom of a 9 X 9 or slightly larger baking dish.

3-4 peaches, peeled, sliced

Layer peaches over the batter in the baking dish.

1/2 cup Walnuts or pecans
1/3 cup sugar
2 tbsp butter
1/4 cup oats
1 tsp cinnamon

In food processor, pulse walnuts, sugar, butter, cinnamon and oats together until the nuts are ground and ingredients are mixed evenly. Top peaches with nut mixture and bake at 375 degrees for about 35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
