A Best Georgia Peach Pecan Crumb Coffee Cake that compliments any good cup of coffee!

Here's the recipe for this great moist cake!

1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup shortening
2 eggs
2 1/4 cups peaches ( put through the food processor pureed but  leaving little chunks of peaches)

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup chopped pecans

Cream sugar and shortening together till fluffy. Add eggs and mix and combine until smooth. Add peach and rest of dry ingredients. Mix thoroughly. Add vanilla and chopped pecans and stir until blended. Pour into two pans that have been well greased (one round 8 inch and one loaf style pan). Pour batter equally into both pans. You now can make the crumb topping, add to the tops of both or just the round coffee cake. I always leave the bread loaf plain to serve with peaches and whipped cream like a shortcake. You can decide how your family will like these.

Crumb Topping Recipe:
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1-1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
3 tablespoons cold butter
1/2 cup chopped pecans optional
Mix ingredients all together until well combined adding nuts last if using.  Sprinkle on top of cake before baking.

Bake on 325 degree preheated oven till browned around an hour. Test the middle when tooth pick comes out clean they are done. Wait 5 minutes before removing from loaf pan.
