OMG GOOD! Every bite of this was wonderful! The streusel was great, no unsavory flour taste, which I so dislike. I might just use this streusel for any recipes that call for this type of topping. Now to the cake part.....so light as to be almost melt in your mouth. I think that coffee cake was named for the fact that it was so dry, you HAD to drink coffee to get it down! Not so with this cake. But go ahead and drink your coffee with it......your coffee will say "thank you." So, all I can say is, thnx for sharing your recipe, ghostlyvision. Made for PAC Spring 2010.

Wow, this was very, very good! It was heavenly still warm from the oven, and I ended up having two pieces as soon as I cut them. I didn't know what to expect from a coffee cake that uses yeast, but it was like a cross between a light tender cake and a sweet bun. That being said, this is not overly sweet (just the way I like it!). I forgot to put the streusel in the middle and ended up putting all on the top. It was still tasty, but I can see how it would've improved the overall result by distributing the sweetness that comes from the streusel. I used walnuts instead of pecans (didn't have any) and a couple of tablespoons of oatmeal for extra texture which turned out very nice. Next time, I will probably pat dry the peaches so that excess moisture does not get trapped in the center. This is a great recipe since you can whip it up with ingredients in your pantry. I am also looking forward to experimenting with cooked sliced apples or even a savory version with sauteed onions and cheese. Thank you so much for sharing a wonderful recipe, ghostlyvision!
This was one of the best coffee cakes I've ever had! It wasn't dry like a lot of coffee cakes seem to be. It is also a very easy yeast recipe since it only has to rise once. I took this to a friend's house and it got devoured very quickly. I followed the recipe to the tee. Thanks for a great one ghostlyvision!
