While looking for a dessert recipe to go with a German-themed dinner I was making, I came across this from "Allrecipes.com". I have adapted it slightly. Kuchen is the German word for kitchen and often refers to this coffeecake-type treat. The recipe was easy to make and everyone loved it. I did serve it with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream. I am listing this recipe as 12 servings with each serving being 4 points. If you would like a larger serving size, 8 servings would be 6 points per piece. Be careful to not over bake this recipe.
Serves 12 ( 4 points +)
- 1/2 c. butter
- 1/4 c. sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 1 c. flour
- 1/2 tsp. baking powder
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 2 medium peaches, sliced
- 3 T. sugar
- 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 and spray an 8 inch round springform pan with nonstick spray.
Sift together flour, baking powder and salt. set aside.
In a large bowl, beat butter and 1/4 c. sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg and vanilla. Beat in flour mixture. Spread dough by hand on the bottom and 1 inch up sides of pan.
Combine 3 T. sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Arrange peach slices in a spole pattern over the dough. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar mixture.
Bake for 30-40 minutes or until golden brown.
