Peach Sunrise Coffee Cake From The Gray Whale Inn Kitchen! A Book and Recipe From Karen MacInerney

I follow Karen MacInerney on Facebook and I subscribe to her news letters too. As a reward last week she sent her followers The Gray Whale Inn Kitchen Recipe Book.  My friend Sheryl over at Booth Talks Booksand I both have made this Peach Sunrise Coffee Cake and it is delicious.
I have asked author Karen MacInerney if I can share this recipe and she has kindly agreed!

Peach Sunrise Coffee Cake From  The Gray Whale Inn Kitchen by Karen MacInerney
Cake :
2 cups of All Purpose Flour
1 tablespoon Baking Powder
1/2 teaspoon Salt
2 tablespoons of Sugar
1/3 cup of butter
1 egg
1 cup milk

1/2 cup of melted butter
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 cups of peaches thinly sliced ( I used canned and I sliced each one in half)

Middle layer:
1/3 cup of sour cream
1/2 cup raspberry preserves

In a large bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, salt and sugar with a fork. Cut in butter. In a separate bowl, beat together egg and milk. Add to the glour mixture, stirring until just mixed. Set aside.

Combine melted butter, brown sugar and cinnamon; spread over the bottom of a 9 inch square baking pan (I had a 8X8 pan). Next layer the peaches in four rows.  Spoon half the cake batter over the peaches.

Middle Layer: Combine sour cream and raspberry preserves in a small bowl. Pour over the batter in the pan. Then drop spoonfuls of the remaining batter over the preserves mixture and smooth it out.

Bake at 350 F for 50 mins, cool for 15 mins and then invert on a serving plate.
