Peaches ‘n Cream Custard

October 4, 2018Teresa

Peaches ‘n Cream Custard is an awesome dessert. It’s so very fruity and delicious. This custard is made with a lot of white flesh peaches. It’s truly a custard–NOT a cake. The peach pieces are actually what give the custard the body it needs to set up. If you enjoy gooey, fruity desserts this one will be right up your alley! 🙂

I was contacted in mid-September by representatives for the Washington State Fruit Commission. They asked me to consider blogging about either white flesh peaches or nectarines. I knew I could not do justice to another 20-pound box of fruit. So I told them I would do a ten-pound box of nectarines….I received a ten-pound box of white flesh peaches instead!

They have them automatically shipped in 20-pound boxes so they had to make a special order for me. I was glad they did because those white flesh peaches were absolutely delicious. I made two different desserts with them. I made this Peaches ‘n Cream Custard (because it used up so many of the peaches). I also made five or six Rustic Peach Galettes. My plan was to use up all the peaches and post before peaches disappeared from all the supermarkets.

This turned out to be a really fantastic dessert. But let me forewarn you: if you’re looking for “cake” you’re not going to get it in this recipe. This is a custard–almost pudding type recipe. It’s not a cake. If you want cake, you’ll have to add an additional cup or cup and a half of flour to give it the body and texture needed. I made this in a springform pan because that’s what the original recipe suggested. But you can just as easily bake this in a round cake pan.

I wasn’t exactly sure what to expect with taste and texture when I saw this recipe. But I wanted to give it a try because it was a way to use a lot of peaches. Plus, my husband doesn’t like dry desserts, so I thought this would be a good option. It definitely was. It was custard-like, fruity, gooey and light making it a perfect after dinner dessert. The dessert calls for powdered sugar to be sprinkled over top before serving. I thought it was delectable with some Cool Whip and maraschino cherries served with it, too. 🙂

This lovely, fruity dessert is excellent made with fresh peaches. But I think you could just as easily use canned or frozen peaches for the recipe as well. If you’ve never tried white flesh peaches before, they are incredibly scrumptious in this recipe. If you want to sample a dessert that you don’t feel horribly guilty after eating, this is the one for you! Enjoy.

Peaches ‘n Cream Custard is really not a cake. It’s a cross between a custard and pudding with just a little more body.

I used these ingredients. While I used white flesh peaches, regular peaches can also be used.
