Peach Kuchen {#Dairyfree} for Labor Day #SundaySupper Party

Labor Day is here - the last hooray of summer; next week the girls will go back to school and I will start my regular work schedule again.  Back to reality and the lazy days of the 2013 summer will become a treasured memory :)

There are many things to celebrate these last days of summer; just take a look at all the produce that is now in season.  Tomatoes, Peaches, Nectarines...are at their peak, so juicy, sweet, and delicious. Apples will be following soon, then my next favorite season fall, the promise of visits to the pumpkin patch.

Today it is the #SundaySupper Labor Day party and thank you so much to Foodie Stuntman for hosting. It is Peach Kuchen from The Not So Cheesy Kitchen today; it certainly is not a pie, nor a cake, nor a "torte", so Kuchen seemed to be the most suitable title for this easy dessert.  It celebrates the end of summer with plenty of ripe, juicy peaches.
Peach Kuchen 
  • 1 box vanilla pudding prepared according to directions with your choice of dairy free "milk" 
  • 3 eggs
  • 4 Tbl. hot water {not boiling}
  • 3/4 C sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 3/4 C flour
  • 3/4 C corn starch
  • 3 tsp. baking powder
  • 3-4 large peaches
  • Optional handful of berries 
  • 1 package of Clear Glaze {prepare with sugar & water according to directions}
  1. Prepare Vanilla Pudding according to directions.  Set aside until ready to use; you will need about 1/2 of the prepared pudding for the cake
  2. ***Preheat oven to 400 F*** Prepare a Cake Springform Pan by lining it with parchment paper
  3. Mix eggs, with water and beat for about 1 minute,
  4. Add sugar, as well as vanilla.  Beat for about another 2 minutes,
  5. Mix flour with corn starch and baking powder; once thoroughly mixed gently add it to the dough
  6. Transfer the dough into the prepared pan and bake immediately for about 30 minutes
  7. When dough is golden and baked all the way through remove from the oven and let it cool down
  8. Leave cake in the pan; run a knife around the outer edges of the pan to loosen the cake. Either lay a cake ring around the cake, or leave it in the springform pan.
  9. Gently remove to top baked layer from the cake to get a straight surface then spread about 1/2 of the cold vanilla pudding {be sure that it is firm} over the cake; 
  10. Slice the peaches and place the peach slices on top of the vanilla pudding layer; add on top of the peaches {if using}
  11. Prepare the Clear Glaze according to directions {I used sugar and water} and spread it over the peaches on the cake. The Kuchen is ready for serving once the glaze has firmed up.
Serve with either Vanilla ice "cream", whipped "cream, or just as is :)
