Peach-Apricot Corn Bread Coffee Cake

“Bridget brought me this recipe for my cookbook of a Peach-Apricot Cornbread that she made with the Apricot Syrup I had given her. It had been a stand out summer for peaches, and she came up with this cornbread coffee cake for something quick and satisfying to have on weekend mornings. You can substitute maple syrup if you don’t have apricot and it still tastes fantastic!” – April Ferre
