A (Simple) Summery Delight: Peach Küchen

I was thrilled when my dear friend, Wanda Urbanska, was writing Fruit Orchard Cookbook and asked me to contribute a favorite recipe. It's simple and summery.

I wrote, "The summery perfume of peach kuchen baking in my mother's kitchen is one of my fondest July and August memories. The cozy morning aroma of Mom cooking before the heat of the day set in wafted up the winding staircase, gently blending a touch of cinnamon and peaches with the flowers in full bloom." 

The Kogen Girls Peachy Delight

2 cups flour

1/4 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 cup sugar

1/2 cup margarine

12 peach halves (blanched and peeled)

1 teaspoon cinnamon

2 egg yokes

1 cup sour cream

Fruit Arrange peaches; sprinkle with cinnamon and remaining sugar. 

Back 15 minutes at 400 degrees. Remove from oven and pour egg/sour cream mixture over top. Return to oven for 30 additional minutes.
