Fresh Peach Custard Kuchen Recipe

Peach Custard Kuchen is the perfect dessert to prepare when local peaches start showing up in farmerís markets, produce stands, and grocery stores. Kuchen ([koo-KHuh n] or (kŻ'kən, -KHən) is the German word for Cake. And just like cake, there are thousands of variations. One of the most popular types of kuchen is a yeast raised coffee cake most often containing fruit; another consists of a crust with both a custard filling and fruit. This recipe is of the latter variety and, while itís fabulous made with fresh peaches, it can also be made with nectarines, apples, pears, plums, or berries.
ĒĒThe following recipe for Peach Custard Kuchen was adapted from an old cookbook in my Motherís collection; it has been a family favorite for years.

If Iím peeling several peaches, itís worth the time to bring a pan of water to a boil; peaches can be peeled easily by plunging them in boiling water for 1 minute, then transferring them to a colander and running cold water over them. The water can be brought to boiling while Iím preparing the crust and assembling the other ingredients; then it takes just a minute or two to prepare the peaches.

8 Servings

1 cup flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 cup butter

1 1/2 to 2 cups fresh peaches, (about 3 medium) peeled and sliced

1/3 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
2 egg yolks
1 egg
1 1/2 cups whipping cream
1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg, (about)

  1. Preheat the oven to 400į.

  2. Spray a shallow 9 x 7 x 2" or 8 x 8 x 2" glass casserole dish with non-stick spray; set aside.

  3. Crust: place flour, sugar (2 tablespoons), salt, and baking powder in the food processor and pulse to mix.

  4. Add the butter and pulse until the mixture is crumbly. Pat the mixture evenly over the bottom of the baking dish and 1" up the sides.

  5. Topping: Arrange the peach slices evenly over the crust.

  6. Sprinkle the 1/3 cup sugar over the peach slices.

  7. Sprinkle the cinnamon evenly over all.

  8. Mix the egg yolks, whole egg, and whipping cream. (this mixture can be mixed in the processor or just in a bowl with a wire whisk).

  9. Pour the cream and egg mixture over the peaches.

  10. Using a nutmeg grater or Microplane, grate the nutmeg evenly over the mixture.

  11. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until the center is set.

  12. Remove from the oven and let sit 15 minutes. Serve warm or cold.
