How To Make This Peach Coffee Cake
- 1 cup flour
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- ¾ teaspoon salt
- ½ cup milk
- 2 egg whites
- 2 Tablespoons melted butter
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1- 21 ounce can peach pie filling
- ½ cup firmly packed brown sugar

- Sift the dry ingredients together in a large bowl.
- Add milk, egg whites, butter and vanilla. Beat using a whisk for 2-3 minutes, until smooth.
- Pour batter into greased pan.
- Sprinkle ½ of the Streusel topping mixture on top of the batter.
- Carefully spoon the peach pie filling over the top of the batter, distributing evenly to cover the batter.
- Sprinkle the remaining Streusel topping mixture on top of the peach pie filling.

Please do not cut down the amount of salt too much in this recipe - perhaps to ½ teaspoon if you wish. The salt is necessary to balance the sweetness of the pie filling and sugar.
