Georgia peach pecan cream cheese coffee cake

Yield: 12 Servings

Measure Ingredient
2¼ cup All-purpose flour
1 cup Sugar; divided
¾ cup Margarine
¾ cup Light sour cream
3 Eggs; divided
½ teaspoon Baking powder
½ teaspoon Baking soda
¼ teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoon Vanilla
1 pack (8 ounces) light cream cheese; softened
1½ cup Peach jam or preserves
1 cup Chopped pecans
1 cup ConfectionersÂ’ sugar
Red and yellow food coloring; (to make peach shade)

Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease and flour bottom and sides of a 9 or 10-inch springform pan. In large bowl, combine flour and ¾ cup sugar. Using pastry blender or fork, cut in margarine until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Reserve one cup crumb mixture. To remaining crumb mixture, add sour cream, 1 egg, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and vanilla. Spread batter over bottom and two inches up sides of prepared pan.

In small bowl, combine cream cheese, ¼ cup sugar, and 2 eggs. Blend well.

Pour over batter in pan. Carefully spoon peach jam or preserves evenly over cheese filling. Sprinkle reserved crumb mixture over top followed by chopped pecans. Bake at 350° for 35 to 45 minutes or until cream cheese filling is set and crust is golden brown. Cool 15 minutes. Remove sides of pan.

In ziploc bag, combine confectioners’ sugar, two tablespoons milk and coloring. Seal bag and mix ingredients around in bag with hands. More milk may be needed to achieve the right peach shade and a thin consistency.

Snip one corner of the ziploc bag and drizzle the glaze over the coffee cake. Stick a leaf in one corner of the coffee cake for a real peach look.

Serve warm or cool. Refrigerate leftovers.
