Fresh Peach Cream Cheese Cake is light and simple summer cake that is easy to make and is eaten quickly. Cream cheese and fresh peaches make it so good.
I love this cake and I often prepare it. Maybe, it‘s because I love peaches. Summer is coming – fresh fruit cakes, as well. Fresh Peach Cream Cheese Cake is one of them. I am always happy to see first fresh peaches at the grocer‘s.
Since I love them, I also like all desserts made of them. My favorite is definitely Fresh Peach Cream Cheese Cake – simple, light, soft cake with fresh, juicy peaches. They match perfectly with a soft cake, making it juicy and fresh.
You can choose some other fruit, or make your own combination. This Fresh Peach Cream Cheese Cake is ideal for brunch or a snack with a glass of milk, ice tea or fresh citrus juice. This cake has a smell of childhood and, somehow, it always takes me back to that period and makes me smile.
Fresh Peach Cream Cheese Cake is easy to prepare, like most of the recipes on our blog. Light and simple desserts, that are not too sweet, are what I like and Fresh Peach Cream Cheese Cake is just like that.

I have dietary issues with cornstarch. Is there a substitute I could use?

Yes Ann, all-purpose flour is a very stable thickener. For every tablespoon of cornstarch, you'll need to substitute two tablespoons of all-purpose flour. 1/4 cup = 4 tablespoons cornstarch

I'm staring at this beautiful thing and I don't want to touch it. Well, we waited 15 minutes and jumped in. Much more dense and close to a pound cake than a cheese cake.
Here's what I experienced when making. Used about 2.5 cups sliced / 3 super ripe peaches. Have a feeling that I should have incorporated more in the batter than the top and was right. I think I could have used 3-4 cups and it would have held. I also used less sugar on top (1/8 cup) since 1/4 cup looked like a lot and I plan to top with a huckleberry sauce. This affected the brown-ness and craggyness of the top. Don't do what I did. Checked at 45 min and was way underdone. At 60 was still underdone. I turned the oven up to 375, waited 15 minutes (emailed my landlord about my faulty oven while I waited) and then the toothpick looked good and I pulled it. It was much taller than I expected, close to the top of my spring form pan. Upon taking it out it didn't really fall much either.
In the end was great. Though the raspberry/huckleberry sauce was amazing too. Hard to imagine it without the sauce.
5 stars. yay cake.
