Filled King Cake

I finally tried out a cream cheese filling for my king cake recipe. Recipe is below. It makes enough for two king cakes. I rolled out my dough pretty thin, smeared the filling along an edge, and rolled it over to seal in the filling. Then I dusted the dough with cinnamon and finished rolling it up.


  • 2 lbs full fat cream cheese

  • 250g powdered sugar

  • 25g AP flour

  • 1 egg



  1. Beat together room temperature cream cheese and 150g of powdered sugar. Start at a low speed so the powdered sugar doesn’t make the kitchen white.

  2. Beat in 25g flour

  3. Beat in 1 egg

  4. Beat in remaining 100g powdered sugar. Beat until smooth.
