Peaches and Cream Cheese Cake
This is a recipe that Harry's wife, Delores, made for us once upon a time. It's really simple to make and people go CRAZY for it! It's Miss Melissa's favorite birthday treat. (Always make one for the birthday party, and then another one for her to take home!) It's also Mat's favorite "Joey dessert". My brother Chris told me "You should be manufacturing these!" I can't claim the recipe as my own, but I'm not gonna lie, I did make it famous! Enjoy!
1 1/2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 cup milk
2 pkgs (3.5 oz) cook and serve pudding mix (not instant)
6 tablespoon soft butter or margarine
2 cans (15-20 oz) sliced peaches, drained, reserve juice
2 pkgs (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
1 cup sugar
6 tbs reserved peach juice
2 tbs sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9x13 baking pan. Set aside.
In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, combine the first seven ingredients for 2 minutes on medium speed. Pour into prepared pan. Place the drained peaches over the batter. Combine cream cheese, 1 cup sugar and reserved peach juice. Beat 2 minutes at medium speed. Spoon to within 1 inch of edge of batter. In a small bowl, mix together the 2 tbs sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon. Sprinkle over entire filling. Place pan in oven and bake for 30-35 minutes until crust is golden. Filling will appear soft. Chill completely before serving. Store in fridge.
