Oma's German Peach Cake Recipe ❤️

Want a German Peach Cake recipe that's easy to make and wonderful to eat, especially warm out of the oven? This Pfirsich-Streuselkuchen is a bread machine cake recipe for a yeast dough. It is then followed by a quick finishing off by hand before baking in the oven. You can make it with streusel topping as shown or omit the streusel, if you wish.


Using an easy bread machine method keeps the time in the kitchen to a bare minimum, while at the same time filling the house with such a fragrance!

I've had my Black and Decker All-In-One Breadmaker for years. 

I use it for making breads, of course, but mostly for making dough. It's the easiest way I've found to make yeast doughs for all sorts of baking.

Brötchen and Kuchen. Staples of German baking!

When it's time to replace my current bread machine, I'll be buying another Black and Decker like the one shown here.

Along with the preprogrammed settings, it's larger, meaning I can make more dough (= more Brötchen!) and larger loaves.


Best served fresh, this Peach Streusel Cake also tastes great and keeps for several days due to the fruit keeping the yeast base moist.

Ingredients:

Yeast Dough

  • 2 tsp active dry yeast
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 2¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ⅞ cup lukewarm milk
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 Tbsp soft butter

Topping & Streusel

  • 28-oz can sliced peaches, well drained
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup cold butter

Instructions:

  • Put all the Yeast Dough ingredients into the Bread Machine pan.
  • Use the "dough" setting and start (usually takes about 1½ hours).
  • Grease  a 15" x 11" baking sheet.
  • Once dough cycle is finished, pat dough onto baking sheet. Pierce dough all over with a fork
  • Arrange fruit on dough in rows.
  • Let rise in a warm place about 15 minutes.
  • Make streusel topping by mixing flour, sugar, and cold butter together to get a crumbly mix. Crumble over fruit just before baking
  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Bake 25 - 30 minutes or until yeast pastry is puffed up and golden between the fruit.
  • Cool slightly in pan then cut into squares.
  • Serves about 8 - 10.

I used canned peaches for this one, and you may find that you'll want to use 2 cans of peaches if you want more fruit on top. However, you can change it by adding different fruits.

German Cakes: Peach Streusel

Can't use this bread maker recipe because you don't have a bread machine. Don't fret. You can make the yeast dough as in the Poppy Seed Cake and finish it the same way as here.

Oma says,

Want something a bit different? Omit the Streusel Topping and sprinkle with ⅓ cup sugar crystals and ½ tsp cinnamon after it is baked.

If you want to make this a German Plum Cake, Pflaumenkuchen, use 2 lb fresh prune plums, wash and pit, cutting plums lengthwise into quarters. Place them in rows over the dough. Let rise. Cover with streusel or sprinkle with sugar. Bake. Enjoy!
