Oma's German Peach Cake Recipe ❤️

➤ by Oma Gerhild Fulson

❤️ Here's an easy yeast cake to make using plums, peaches, whatever fruit you wish, just like Oma makes.

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.

Best served fresh, this Peach Streusel Cake also tastes great and keeps for several days due to the fruit keeping the yeast base moist. It does taste wonderful when served with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream on the side.

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.

Don't have a bread machine?

Can't use this bread maker recipe because you don't have a bread machine? That's ok. The only reason I use the bread machine is to make quick and easy work of making the dough.

However, you can make the yeast dough following the normal way, such as the way it's made 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 pounds of 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!
