A Peach Recipe

This recipe is for moms.
It's not so much for kids.
And it's probably not so much for dads.

So if you are having some ladies over,
make it.
If you are having a family with kids over,
don't make it.
Apparently, I'm feeling bossy.
How 'bout I just let you make the call?

Peaches and Cream Coffeecake

Dough:
2/3 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 egg
1/2 cup milk
3 T butter, melted
1 quart canned or fresh peaches, drained, reserve the juice

Cream filling:
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
3 T peach juice

Topping:
1 T sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large mixing bowl, mix flour, baking powder and salt. Add egg, milk and butter and beat for 2 minutes. Pour into a well-greased 8-inch round pan. Drain peaches and arrange over batter. For the filling, cream together ingredients and spoon over peaches. For the topping mix sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle on top. Bake 30 to 35 minutes.

So, I'm bad about reading a recipe all the way through.
I made this in an 8X8 square pan.
It worked.
But next time I'll make it in the round pan.
Then I can cut it in triangles.
I like triangles.

This is not very sweet.
When I make it next,
I may add a little sugar to the bottom layer.
And a little cinnamon too.
And maybe some nutmeg.
I like nutmeg.

And I will make it again.
Possibly even if I'm not having ladies over.
It would be ok to eat the whole thing, right?
By myself.
All in one setting.
I'm kidding about that last part.
Maybe.
I like to eat.

I like to eat triangular nutmeg-y things.

That sounds good...I might just have to try it. And, I'm glad it worked in an 8X8 square pan since I don't own a round baking pan like that (maybe I should to improve my domesticity)....BTW, we're potty-training our son this weekend (and we're staying home all weekend)...Since you're an expert with boys, I may be seeking you out if the rest of the weekend goes like last night :)
