View Bracha

The Bracha Rishona on Peach Pie is Mezonos, and the Bracha Acharona is Al Hamichya.

As with all cakes, the dough is considered the Ikkur (primary ingredient) and only Mezonos is necessary (Mishnah Berurah 212:1), even if there is less dough than peaches, and even if the cake is eaten mainly because of the peaches. However, to say an Al Hamichya one must eat a K'zayis of cake within a Kdei Achilas Pras (2-9 minutes). Otherwise, one says a Borei Nefashos. On the other hand, if there is merely a thin strip of dough, which is intended just to help you handle all the peaches, the dough becomes subordinate to the peaches and only Haetz need be said.
