The best desserts I’ve ever had in my life were back when I visited Celano, Italy.  Anyone who has been to Italy knows what’s up.  Any dessert with the world “Italian” in the title automatically means it’s going to be good.  This Italian Fresh Peach Crumb Cake did not disappoint.  I was super excited to have made this cake with peaches that came from my backyard.  That’s right – no grocery store required.  I took a basket and walked right to my peach tree in my backyard and picked these guys myself.  I love it!  I may have made this crock pot peach cobbler again with the 100 peaches I ended up picking up the tree that just kept on giving.

Italian Peach Crumb Cake recipe is a quick, easy dessert made with fresh peaches.

Have more will power than me and try to resist picking at the amazing crumb topping on this cake while it sits there calling out your name.  Also, you should know that this cake caused me to have an incredibly annoying fruit fly infestation in my kitchen for approximately three weeks.  Totally worth it.

    Ashley, this cake looks phenomenal! And the fact that it’s made with homegrown peaches makes it twice as wonderful!

    Send me some of your peaches please! I’m peach obsessed. I can’t wait to make this cake. Oh, and I hear you on the fruit flies – I’ve just decided to make peace with them though!

    What a beautiful crumb cake…I had a peach tree growing up and a few apple trees. Sometimes I truly miss having them. I have to make this next time I have guests I know they will love it! Picking up a few extra peaches while they are still in season. xo, catherine

    This pie looks delicious! I regret that I didn’t get peaches this year. Such a bummer. I notice you are from Upstate NY. I’m from the Finger Lakes Region – Howdy!

    This is good with strawberries and rhubarb too. I’ve been making this for over 40 years but I always considered it a pie not a cake. I use a deep dish pie pan. I like it warm with a dollop of vanilla ice cream or just a little cream.
