I grew up in ND and had kuchen often and the only time we used a sour cream based filling was for the sour cream raisin kuchen and my sour cream chokecherry kuchen because it does seem drier than what the norm is. I learned to bake in my great grandmothers old wood cook stove and we did all other kuchen with a custard base made with real cream. The NDSU ext page shows a recipe almost exactly like I was given by my great grandma and it is always a hit. I added an extra egg to this one and a bit more sugar but again it came out drier than I expected. Close but no I won't use this one again. I have started just swirling sour cream in to the custard for my raisin sour cream and so much better all the way around

Delicious! Just the right amount sugar. My husband does not like anything too sweet. He and I both really like this recipe, will add this recipe to our favorites.

I am not a big cobbker fan, but my son's love peach cobbler. This recipe has been a favorite for years. It's not a cobbler but close enough. I love topping it with french vanilla ice cream or french vanilla cool whip..

I use this recipe all the time and love it. Plus my kids can help make it. I use 2 whole eggs in the topping so I dont have leftover egg whites and it turns out just fine.

I found that adding 1 cup of Blueberres with the peaches really enhances the flavor, but it is terrific with just peaches!

This was okay, but I will not make it again. We each had a piece, and the rest was thrown out.

I made this for my dad's birthday celebration - he loves kuchen; and I have to say it is outstanding. I don't even like it and I thought this was fabulous! I did lighten it up some...but not much, instead of four egg yolks I used two egg yolks and 1/2 cup of egg beaters. Next time around I think I could even cut back some of the sugar since most recipes you seem to be able to cut out 1/4-1/2 without noticing. The crust I don't think I'd change a thing, it was wonderful!

Delicious recipe. I made two changes with using fresh peaches and doubling the topping. Everyone raved about it!
