This is a really easy coffee cake. I’ve made it a few times but this time I cut the recipe in half and made it in a loaf pan. I just didn’t need a whole coffee cake. I wanted a whole coffee cake, but I was showing restraint.
That brings me to a point. Since there are only two of us in this household, (and currently only one in California) I’m rarely making a full batch of anything. When you are baking vegan it is so much easier to pair down. Half an egg is pretty easy to work out and that way you get a variety of things.
I only made a small batch of this cake because honestly I wanted to eat my peaches in their natural form. So I got the best of both worlds with some warm coffee cake and some wonderful local sweet peaches.
