This is an old recipe I got when I was in 4-H. It is a rich yeast raised coffee cake that won a blue ribbon at the county fair.

Prep Time includes time for the dough to rise.

How to Make German Peach Coffee Cake

Step-by-Step

  • 1For yeast dough, dissolve yeast and 1 tablespoon sugar in water. Let stand 5 minutes. In a large bowl, combine shortening, sugar and egg. Gradually mix in 2 cups flour, milk and yeast mixture. Add enough remaining flour to form a soft dough. Turn out onto a floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place dough in a greased bowl, turning to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.

Sprinkle over dough. Top with peach slices. Bake at 375 for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Yield: 2 coffee cakes.
