Recipe of the Month - Peach Kuchen


Peach Kuchen

As I was enjoying a peach recently, I had a memory of a dessert my mom would make growing up called Peach Kuchen (the German word for cake). I recreated this dessert from my childhood to be gluten-free, dairy-free, and lightly sweetened with coconut sugar. It’s a thin, slightly crispy, not-too-sweet cake as a base topped with sliced peaches. Perfect summer dessert! 


  • 1/2 cup butter, softened (dairy-free or regular)
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 cup GF flour (I used Bob’s Redmill 1-to-1 GF baking blend)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2-4 peaches, sliced (yellow works best)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350F. 
  2. Using an electric mixer, combine all wet ingredients. 
  3. Mix in the flours, baking powder, and salt until the batter is uniform and well combined. 
  4. Spread into a greased 9x13in baking dish. 
  5. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until the cake is a deep, golden brown color. *NOTE: I live at 6000ft elevation which affects baking time. Baking time may be longer at lower elevations.
  6. Cool for 10 minutes, and serve warm. Best served fresh!
