Eat this Peach Buckle either for dessert or breakfast, a great way to finish or start your day. Watch and learn how to make this super easy peachy coffee cake topped with crunchy sliced almonds, baked in a vanilla cake batter until golden and fragrant, and serve it right out of the pan. I like to serve it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for dessert, and for breakfast I like to dust it with powdered sugar. If you don’t have a cast-iron skillet, no problem… Bake it either in a 9-inch square baking pan or a 2-quart shallow baking dish. Farewell summer…
