Peach and Strawberry Crumb Cake

I have some leftover peaches at home from the salsa that Adam made so I decided to make a Peach Crumb Cake.  After scouring my fridge, I also have some strawberries so I decided to throw it in the mix. 

The crumb cake I used is Sarah's Coffee Cake Recipe which uses her Ultimate Butter Cake as the base and adding to it a wonderful sugar cinnamon topping.  In between the cake and the topping, I made a fruit layer - a mix of small slices of strawberries and peaches.  I think this Coffee Cake recipe is the most fragrant cake I ever make.  The kitchen smells so good whenever I am baking this.  You may have noticed from my older posts that I am not big in adding fruits in cakes.  However, Adam loves them and I am trying to incorporate fresh ones into my baked goods.

Here's a photo of the cake from the side with the fruits.  It created a fruity decadent layer into this already awesome coffee cake.  It is very light and moist.  It is perfect for breakfast together with our favorite coffee, although we also had it for dessert after dinner.
