Home Newsroom 332. 12 Days of Recipes, Day 9: Peaches & Cream Coffee Cake

A lot of thought goes into the dishes you’ll serve or bring to this year’s holiday dinner.  But what about Christmas morning?  For the perfect, festive dish to serve at breakfast this holiday, try my Peaches and Cream Coffee Cake.

12 Days of Recipes - Day 9

Warning:**  This is not my usual “great flavor without the fuss” recipe…  This one takes some time.  But, with ingredients like peaches and cream, it is so worth it.

Post - Peaches and Cream

And, on the other hand, it does fit my “maximize your efforts in the kitchen” category since the results of this recipe are 4 coffee cakes.  When it comes to making something fussy, if the item can be frozen (which these can), I always think it’s worthwhile to make a lot at once. You can half the recipe if you only want to make two (just whip the egg when required, and then use half).

Peaches and Cream Coffee Cake


1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter, cubed
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 package (1/4 ounce) yeast
1/4 cup warm water
1 egg, lightly beaten
2 cups all-purpose flour


8 ounces (1 package) cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup sugar
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 peaches, sliced


1 cups confectioners’ sugar
3 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Toasted sliced almonds, optional

In a small saucepan, combine the sour cream or yogurt, sugar, butter and salt. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, for 5-10 minutes or until well blended.   Cool to room temperature. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water.  Add cream mixture and eggs.  Beat until smooth. Gradually stir in flour to form a soft dough (dough will be very soft). Cover and let rise.  Punch dough down. Turn dough onto a floured surface; knead until smooth.  Divide into fourths. Roll each piece into a 12-in. x 8-in. rectangle. In a large bowl, combine all filling ingredients except peaches until well blended. Spread over the center of each rectangle.   Top with sliced peaches. Fold in sides; pinch seams and ends to seal.  Place seam side down on greased baking sheets. Cut six X’s on top of loaves. Cover and let rise, about 1 hour. Bake at 375° for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool.  In a small bowl, combine the confectioners’ sugar, milk and vanilla; drizzle over warm loaves. Sprinkle with almonds if desired.

Hi guys! Today we'll be checking out some star-crossed lovers! 💔

No, **not** Romeo and Juliet! I mean first of all, the story of 牛郎织女 -- niú láng zhī nv -- dates back to at least the Jin Dynasty -- 250-420 AD 😱. Take that, Shakespeare! Also, Romeo and Juliet may be tragically "star-crossed," but, as the story goes, Niu Lang and Zhi Nu literally *are* stars -- on opposite ends of the Milky Way 😦.

Let's rewind. Zhi Nu is the youngest daughter of the Queen Mother of the West and the Jade Emperor (Hey -- we know who those people are! 😁).

Meanwhile, Niu Lang was a poor. sad, unloved cowherd. As many versions of the story go, though, the cow was magical -- which is never a bad thing 😂. The cow led Niu Lang to steal the clothes of a girl bathing with her sisters in a river.

As questionable as a method as that may seem, it worked! Zhi Nu and Niu Lang were married and had children ❤️.

But there's always a but. And this story's "but" is that the Queen Mother was not happy with this union. Niu Lang had a magical coat (that's another story), and when the Queen Mother tried to separate them, he flew up to try to join Zhi Nu in the heavens.

Unfortunately, the Queen Mother wasn't having it, and she separated the two with a river in the sky, only allowing them to meet on the 7th day of the 7th month of the lunar calendar -- "Chinese Valentine's Day."
