Peaches and Cream Cheese Cake

So, when I first opened up to this recipe in a church-style recipe collection – I assumed it was a cheesecake. But, it’s a cream-cheese, cake. A little disappointed as I continued to read – but I wanted to get it out to you quickly as well as try it myself.

The instructions were absolutely all-over-the-place, which can be very common in these older community-gathered recipe books. But I think I put it together “well enough”. Have any suggestions or questions – let me know if the comments below.

Though I know that there are a lot of people who aren’t a fan of cream cheese. I love have varied cream cheese can be. Try this fun summer, fruity, cream cheese cake and let me know what you think!

Enjoy and Happy baking! 💋

Servings 8 people
A delicious and easy summer treat!

Ingredients

  • ¾ C all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • oz package vanilla pudding (not instant)
  • 3 Tbsp butter
  • ½ C milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 canned peaches (Size not specified - assuming 15 oz)

Topping

  • 1 8 oz package cream cheese
  • ½ C granulated sugar
  • 3 tsp juice (fruit)

Additional Topping (Please read notes below)

  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon* (Please read notes below! I suggest only ¼ tsp cinnamon.)

Instructions 

  • Preheat oven to 350°
  • Sift together the flour, baking powder, salt, pudding.
  • Mix in butter, milk, and egg.
  • Grease pie (baking) pan
  • Pour batter into pan
  • Lay peaches on top of batter
  • Mix together cream cheese, sugar and juice to make the topping
  • Spread topping on top of peaches
  • Mix together additional topping ingredients: sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle over cake
  • Bake for 30 - 35 minutes

Notes

*There were absolutely no instructions given on how to use this additional topping.  In fact, the entire instruction set was out of order.  The "Grease pie pan" came just before "Bake at 350 for 30 to 35 minutes".  I would suggest ONLY using 1/4 spoon cinnamon and combining it with the 1 tsp sugar for a sprinkled topping which is placed on top just before baking.  If you have any other ideas or suggestions - let me know in the comments.
