Hi, I'm Stef! Welcome to my kitchen, home to over 1000 recipes! Join me on my quest to push baking boundaries and live creatively both in and out of the kitchen.
Happy exploring!

Until now, I’d never made a peaches and cream recipe. In fact, prior to my making it, neither Jonathan nor I had ever had peaches and cream. We both weren’t even sure what peaches and cream was supposed to taste like. I have to wonder if we are freaks or if the the romantic notion of peaches and cream pervades our culture more than the actual dish.

Peaches n’ cream (pronounced like one long word – peachesncream) can be found everywhere except as a simple dish of peaches with cream; witness Peaches & Cream oatmeal, Peaches n’ Cream lip balm, and even Peaches N’ Cream Barbie.

The product description for the Peaches N’ Cream Barbie says that it “Makes you feel all warm on the inside and fuzzy on the outside!” I’m not sure how a product can make you feel fuzzy on the outside unless it’s a fur coat or Rogaine.

Unlike Peaches N’ Cream Barbie, the dessert form of peaches and cream is not a thing of beauty. When Jonathan first saw it, he questioned how anyone could, with good conscience, plate and serve it to company. But then, we took bites and we saw what all the reverence was about. At the bottom rests a layer of thick sweet crust, then comes a layer of sweet, juicy peaches (I used canned, but it would be even better with seasonal, fresh peaches), and a layer of thick cream with a sprinkling of cinnamon and sugar tops it off. It’s hard to resist plopping gobs of the stuff into your bowl and then going back for seconds. If the Barbie shown above were a true Peaches N’ Cream Barbie, she would be far more rotund.

Peaches and Cream Recipe

I got the peaches and cream recipe from Dragon Musings, this month’s Taste & Create partner (the monthly event where bloggers get paired up to make recipes from each other’s blogs). I love Dragon Musing’s blog header. You should go check it out! It’s funny that the item she made from my blog was also peach-related. She made my peach cup-pies (here’s her version).

Dragon Musings found the peaches and cream recipe in an Australian Women’s Weekly Menu Planner from 1987. I am reprinting the recipe below. Other than Americanizing it a bit, the only change I made was to add much more cinnamon than the original recipe called for – I don’t think you can have too much cinnamon.

    I readily admit that I’ve eaten a bowl of peaches drowning in cream and sprinkled with cinnamon and brown sugar. I didn’t even know that there was an official dessert. This sounds kind of like upside down cobbler. Yum!

    (I totally had that barbie when I was little. Scary.)

  2. I’m glad you liked the recipe. And thanks for the comment on the blog header, I love playing around with graphics and things like that.

    I made your Pomegranate Mojito cupcakes on the weekend in little babycake size. Man those things are dangerous! You think that because they are only one bite you can have a couple, and before you know it, the whole plate is empty! Good thing it made 70!

  3. alwaysarac says:

    OMG I HAD THAT BARBIE! In fact, I believe I still have the dress of it. 😛

  4. Alexson says:

    Frirst: yum. Second: I had that Barbie, too! I loved that dress, it was so swooshy.

  5. Pam says:

    Funny with Barbie; leave it to her! She has everything! Your bowl of peaches looks so inviting and delicious!

  6. Hmm, microwave dishes sometimes seem sketchy, but I can’t help but want to try it after you gave it such high praise!

  7. I still have that Barbie. The dress was in my top two favorites, mostly because of the shawl…you could wrap it around her in so many ways!
    I really just got more excited about this post because of a doll than that totally awesome looking desert…how sad.

  8. Betsy says:

    Yep, I had that Barbie too. I was so jealous because I totally wanted her outfit.

    Loooove the recipe! Yummy!

  9. Holy crap I had that Barbie growing up as well!

  10. Sana Hurzuk says:

    yum this looks good! i too have never eaten peaches n cream..i do have canned mango right now.. do u think mango would taste good in here.. i think it would…

  11. Megan says:

    This sounds absolutely delicious-bonus points that it’s so easy to put together and you can make it in the microwave!

  12. Heidi says:

    This was better once I had let it sit and cool in the fridge. The kiddos did not like it, unfortunately.

    Wow, just wow! These are really superb! I had my doubts at first with the peaches and creme going along in the batter, but it made the cupcakes extremely moist. Haven’t made the frosting, yet, (lack of vanilla bean paste; is there a substitute?). Overall a great recipe.

  14. Stef says:

    Anon – You can just use vanilla extract or extract plus the seeds from a vanilla bean.

  15. Stephanie C says:

    This was a very interesting recipe – a cross between my peach cobbler and a peaches and cream pie that I make with a cream cheese custard layer. I would love to try this again altered for the oven for a little more even consistency, but I will say that for a quick, comforting dessert, this was great!

  16. Anonymous says:

    What are the substitution amounts if you use fresh peaches?

  17. Stef says:

    Anon – I would use the same amount.

  18. Lori says:

    I am definitely going to make this and can hardly wait; I am SO happy!!
