Sour Cream Peach Kuchen

Sour Cream Peach Kuchen

Oh My Gosh I had forgotten all about this recipe!! When I first started cooking at different facilities I was introduced to Peach Kuchen. I could not stop eating it. It is so heavenly!!
Kuchen is the German word for cake just in case you were wondering. It's made with peaches, custard, and a shortbread crust. My mouth is watering just thinking about it.
What is peach kuchen made of?
Peach Kuchen is a delectable German peach cake made with either fresh or canned peaches. Simple custard cream and cake batter is baked all together creating a moist and delicious cake.
Baking powder
Sour Cream
Egg Yolks
We like to use fresh peaches but you can use frozen peaches for this recipe. Just thaw your frozen peaches well and get as much moisture as you can out of them.
In our family we like to serve this warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, or a dollop of homemade whipped cream.
Make one this week for your family!
Happy Baking 🙂
