Peaches 'n Cream Cheese Cake Recipe // This Peaches and Cream Cheese Cake Recipe is a family favorite. It's not your traditional holiday pie, but it will compliment your holiday meal wonderfully. | Tried and TastyThis recipe has been in my family for as long as I can remember. In fact this Peaches and Cream Cheese Cake recipe is my dad’s most favorite thing that my mom makes. We have it on average two-three times a year: for my dad’s birthday, for Thanksgiving, and then again for Christmas (if we’re lucky). It’s something that the whole family enjoys, but isn’t easily shared and is often fought over. We’ll find as we are walking by that little slivers are missing here and there until the next thing we know, the entire thing is gone! I prefer to eat it warm, but it’s delicious served room temperature also. I love those recipes that remind you of a time or a place or a person. This recipe reminds me of home. Have you even ever heard of a Peaches and Cream Cheese Cake recipe? It’s not something I’ve seen or tasted anywhere else.

Through all the years I’d never once made our Peaches and Cream Cheese Cake recipe on my own. I’ve seen my mom make it over and over but never did I jump in and offer to make it for whatever reason. It was just one of those things that “mom does”. This year I decided to take on the challenge of recreating this special family recipe. I was excited to use a jar of the peaches I canned late summer/early fall! I was so nervous – but one look in to the oven when the timer went off I knew it was a success. Of course, the first people I told that I’d made the famous “Peaches and Cream Cheese Cake Recipe” was my family. I’ve never seen my family come together so quickly over anything in my life! As I turned it over to my dad, it was love at first site. I’ve never received so many compliments on anything I’ve ever made. He truly made me feel like a superstar and I’m so grateful that I have the special touch that my mom does :)

Ingredients

  • 3/4 c. flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 3 1/4 oz. box dry vanilla pudding mix cook n serve, not instant
  • 3 tbsp. butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 c. milk
  • 1 8 oz. pkg. cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 c. sugar
  • 1 15 oz. can of peaches
  • 3 tbsp. juice from peaches
  • 1 tbsp. sugar
  • 1/2 tbsp. cinnamon

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

  2. Mix together flour, baking powder, salt, pudding mix, butter, egg and milk in stand mixer or using hand mixer; beat 2 minutes at medium speed.

  3. Pour in to greased pie pan. Drain a 15oz can of peaches (reserve juice) and carefully place peaches evenly over batter one at a time.

  4. Combine cream cheese, sugar, and 3 Tbsp. juice from peaches into a mixer and beat until smooth. Pour over sliced peaches evenly.

  5. Combine 1 Tbsp. sugar and 1/2 Tbsp. Cinnamon and sprinkle over cream cheese filling. Bake at 350 degrees F for 30-35 minutes until crust is golden brown. Filling will appear soft.

Recipe Notes

You will want your cream cheese to be room temperature before you start. I actually set my egg, butter, and cream cheese out for an hour or more before I even started baking. That way, when I was ready everything was nice and soft. Having a room temperature egg allows it to incorporate in to your batter easier. Having room temperature cream cheese makes for a smoother filling rather than a lumpy one. Enjoy!

    Hi Yvonne – Can fresh peaches be used in this recipe? Sorry if you’ve already answered this question in the other comments.

  2. Deb

    My mom used to make this and gave me the recipe several times, but never kept it. She passed away last year and I was so happy to find this! Just made the recipe but didn’t realize I had instant pudding. :( I added additional milk and hope it turns out ok.

  3. Toni Hayes

    This simple recipe has been a family favorite for years. It is delicious & very easy. I agree with having the cream cheese at room temperature. Refrigerate the leftovers & warm in the microwave. Somewhere along the way the recipe changed that I got. My recipe calls for a 29 ounce can of peaches drained & cut into chunks.

  4. Sheila Ottino

    Well if you were close I would hug you! I love this recipe and have been searching for it unsuccessfully for years!! I originally found it on the back side of a powdered sugar C&H box (C&H was a sugar factory in California) Where I am from). Then they stopped making it about 15 years ago and I never found it again. I’ve made it so many times when I first got married in 1981.
    I too had the recipe that instructed to place a few of the pieces on the top as well in a circular fashion! I don’t remember the vanilla pudding being part of it, But I can’t wait to make this right after I get hubby to pick up the ingredients for me! Thank you so much for making my day so Blessed !

    Just retired to Texas but are home (Kansas) for the holidays – I also have used this recipe for over 30 years – left all my recipes in Texas and thought of this for my son which is his all-time favorite- just took a chance and typed in Peaches ‘n’ Cream Chhesecake and as soon as your recipe popped up I could tell it was mine. My son will be so thrilled that we will have some.

    1. Yvonne

      Kim, I love hearing your story of the 30 year history with this recipe! I’ve had it in my family since I was young (not sure how long it was around before then). Hopefully you made it, and hopefully it turned out exactly how you wanted! Thanks for taking the time to rate and comment on the recipe!

  6. Sherri L.

    This sounds delicious. Thank you for posting this recipe! Heading out now to purchase the ingredients to make it. One quick note – you may wish to add the 15 oz. can of peaches to the ingredients list. Thanks! :)

    1. Yvonne

      That has been fixed, I can’t believe no one has ever mentioned that – thank you!! Hopefully you enjoyed it as much as my family does.

    I have been looking for this for over a decade. I learned how to make it in 9th grade “Foods For Singles” class at Towson H.S. (Md.) in 1982. I NEVER liked ANYTHING with peaches & was complaining before we ever made it…”Why not cherry or apple?) I was too stupid to understand they don’t have the juices you need!

    It was not only amazing to taste, but a great looking dish as well. We were taught to place the pieces of peach, ON TOP , in a decorative circle. Not under the filling like here? It was so good that a few of my parent’s friends asked if they could “PAY ME?” to make them one, for a fancy dinner party they were hosting. I did…for free! It was a big hit.

    The only teacher I knew with the recipe (I lost), would be 90-95 years of age today, so getting this recipe from her might have been quite a challenge….to say the least! I can’t believe Google found it! I have to bring a dessert to a big Turkey Day feast & they are probably expecting me to show up with a box of HO HO’s? Wait until they see this? I will practice with this recipe & hope memories kick in? if so, I’ll make it the old way, (with peaches on top) & see which one comes out better.

    Your recipe is exactly the same one I found in a Christian School Cookbook over 30 years ago. I have been making it ever since as it has become a real favorite here too. I will be making it again tomorrow for company. Your readers are going to LOVE it! I did wind up substituting plain ground nutmeg sprinkled on top for the cinnamon and sugar. It is delicious. The nutmeg takes it to a new level. Just my humble opinion. Have a great day!

    1. Yvonne

      How wonderful to hear! I actually don’t like nutmeg, which is why we chose to do the cinnamon sugar – but for those who do, I bet that would be wonderful! I just returned from visiting my family on the east coast and while we were there we had this – always a favorite!

  9. Valerie

    My best friend gave me this recipe years ago and every time I make it, it does not last long enough to put it in the fridge! It is so easy and quick to make, and very delish!

  10. Pat Conrad

    This recipe was one of the winners in the PIllsbury bake off contest many, many years ago, and the recipe originally appeared in women’s magazines. My Mom cut it out and I followed it for years until it was in tatters. Glad to have the recipe back again. I’m 68 and have had the recipe as far back as I can remember, so you know how old it is!

    1. Yvonne

      Ohmygoodness, I love reading about the history of this recipe from so many commenters! Thank you for letting me know and I’m so happy you have the recipe back, this is a family favorite for sure in our house!

    2. Joyce Lazan

      I couldn’t remember where I got this recipe until you mentioned the Pillsbury Bake Off! I have always used pineapple instead of peaches (just because I like it). I am 76 and have made this for years. It is delicious!

    1. Yvonne

      I’m sorry I’m just barely seeing this – if your house is warm, you’ll want to put it in the fridge, if your house is cool, you are OK to leave it out! Summer = fridge, winter = counter. But really, if I’m being honest.. this doesn’t last long enough to worry about that – haha!

  11. Cindi

    I also had a recipe similar to this that a close friend had shared with me. It was a recipe I used many times early in my marriage (now 39 years ago), with great success. After the chaos of a house fire 2 years ago, I am unable to find my copy of the recipe. Thank you for sharing this! I will be making it again.

    1. Yvonne

      I’m so happy you’ve found something close once more! I’m sorry about the house fire, that sounds crazy!! Excited for you to make this, my family sure does love it!

    1. Yvonne

      Hi Joni! I think the use of the cook n serve pudding is important in this. I haven’t tried it any other way, but don’t think you’d get the same result with instant pudding.

  12. Kim Ruhl

    Hi Yvonne….I am in Australia and have come across your amazing recipe. I am VERY keen to try it as my 5 year old step son is mad on peaches at the moment. What exactly is vanilla pudding mix. I am sure we have the same thing here but just wanting to check. Thanks for your help, am excited to try this. Kim

  13. Amy

    My mom got this exact recipe from her cousin over 50 years ago. It is a family favorite. I have been making it for 26 years for my family now. It is always a winner at any gathering.

  14. Linda

    I had this recipe as well, but no longer have the cookbook. Glad I found it here. It was originally in a Pillsbury cook book called “Simply From Scratch”

  15. Joan Berry

    I had a recipe like this one about 20 years ago and lost it. I think it was the same one. I am so excited to have it. Making this tonight! Thank you! Your website has some very good stuff.

    1. Yvonne

      Oh cool! This is so delicious and will always remind me of my family! Glad a recipe similar to yours is back in your hands!

  16. summerscraps

    Yvonne this looks divine! I just love peach desserts – and aren’t family recipes the best? I was just saying I wanted to share our families Peach Delight recipe on my blog (it is the one my mom always makes and now I have begun to make) and my brother said I was forbidden to share it :) We joked that if I shared it then no one would have any reason to invite us to parties anymore. Your recipe reminded me of mine because it is also made with peaches. I can’t wait to try yours!

    1. Yvonne

      You know what’s funny, I was actually kind of scared to ask my mom if she was ok with me posting the recipe! I thought… well, doesn’t hurt to ask right?! So glad she was ok with it – it’s worth being shared. It’s DELICIOUS!!! I bet yours is a keeper too, especially if it’s a family secret!

      1. Raylene

        I’m so glad your mom was willing to share; this looks so yummy! My mom was a chef and didn’t share any recipes because if the recipe failed she thought it would reflect bad on her. I think always thought that was so sad.
