Blueberry Peach Coffee Cake

Blueberry and peach batter

Things have been a little busier than normal, so please forgive my tardiness on putting this up (finishing work, moving into school, starting SENIOR YEAR OF COLLEGE). My favorite summer fruits are blueberries and peaches, so voila, I combined them both into a recipe. This recipe was originally for blueberry coffee cake, but, in typical Ellen fashion, I added peaches because I can’t follow a recipe. The peaches add more moisture to the cake and make it a little denser but the flavor is great. Unfortunately while at school, my baking is more limited since all of the ingredients I could ever dream of are not at my fingertips anymore (they’re at the grocery store instead of the closet), so I hope to still be able to add more recipes more frequently this fall (fingers crossed). Enjoy the last few days of summer and this great recipe!
