Blackberry Peach Coffee Cake – I love this time of year when my favorite summer fruits are in season. I grabbed the juiciest peaches and blackberries to make easy cake recipes. This cake recipe reminds me of an old fashioned cake. It is a cross between a coffee cake and an upside-down cake. In summer I love lightly frosted or topped with whip cream vs fully frosted cakes.
To be honest, I am really focusing on lighter recipes lately. Although, I don’t have my grandma’s recipe for the peach cake she made something similar to this. I adapted a white cake recipe adding the fruits of summer to recreate a recipe similar to hers. What are your favorite summer fruits?
Blackberry Peach Coffee Cake
- This recipe uses two round cake pans.
- First, make a cake batter.
- Then add summer fruits.
First I washed the blackberries. Leave most all the blackberries whole. Except for a few you can cut them in half. Do this if your blackberries are really big.
Then I washed, peeled, and chopped the peaches into bite-size pieces. When the fruit is ready, set to the side.

Next, take the peaches along with the blackberries and slip them into the cake batter.
Then covered slightly more with a little batter over the top of the fruit.
This really is a yummy summer cake that is perfect with coffee or iced tea.
