  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a 9-inch springform pan with non-stick cooking spray. Line the bottom of pan with parchment, and spray again with non-stick cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl, cream together 1⁄4 cup butter and light brown sugar. Once combined, beat in the buttermilk, vanilla paste, and egg until well incorporated. In a medium bowl, whisk together the white whole-wheat flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add it to the wet ingredients and stir until a batter forms. Pour into the pan. Top with a single layer of peach slices.
  • In a small bowl, use a fork to mix together the remaining butter, sugar, and all-purpose flour until it forms coarse crumbs. Sprinkle over the peaches.
  • Bake for 50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle of the cake comes out clean. Cool for at least 15 minutes before releasing the cake from the pan.
