Peach Kuchen Recipe


  • 2 ¼ cups white flour
  • ¼ cup shortening
  • ¼ cup + 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 2 teaspoons yeast
  • ½ cup warm water
  • 2 eggs + 2 egg yolks
  • 1 cup cream
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 cups sliced or chopped peaches


  1. In a small bowl, mix together the yeast, water, and a teaspoon of sugar. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the flour, shortening, sugar, and 2 whole eggs. Mix together until crumbly.
  3. Add in the yeast mixture. (You may need to add a little milk to make a nice sticky dough). Knead the dough for several minutes.
  4. Place it in a warm area and cover to let it rise for about an hour.
  5. Grease a 9x9 (or slightly larger pan.)

  6. Pat the dough into the bottom of the pan and slightly up the sides.
  7. Place in a pre-heated to 350 degree oven and bake for 15 minutes.
  8. During this time, in a medium bowl, mix together the cream, cinnamon, and egg yolks.
  9. After you take the bread out of the oven, place the chopped peaches in the middle and pour the cream mixture over the top.
  10. Place back in the oven and bake for another 30-40 minutes or until the middle has set up.
  11. Enjoy warm or cold.
