Easy Almond Peach Streusel Cake Recipe

Easy Almond Peach Streusel Cake Recipe
Fresh peaches are at their best in the early fall, and when I’m in a hurry, I like to make desserts like the following Almond Peach Streusel Cake. It’s a very moist cake with a crunchy topping, and it’s full of fresh, luscious peaches. This yummy cake starts with a cake mix; real butter, almond extract, and fresh peaches make it taste like it’s made from scratch. The streusel topping sinks in across various places on the top of the cake, making crunchiness and gooeyness throughout.

The Official Hancock Tasters quickly devoured this cake, and there weren’t many leftovers. However, those leftovers stayed moist and good for a couple of days when stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
