This doesn’t really have anything to do with Cloudflare. It looks like Google last crawled the page on July 23, and that was indeed what the title of the page was at the time. You can request that Google re-crawls / re-indexes your page, but you can’t force them. Google does what Google wants when they want to do it. Re-crawl requests through Search Console almost never work in my experience (well, you’ll see Google hit your server if you check the logs but they won’t actually update the index based on the recrawl). Requesting recrawls through Google’s API is much more effective, however, getting properly set up with the API may take a few hours of work if you’ve never done it before. If you can get set up with the API, use it to request recrawl once or twice a day (I normally do morning and evenings) and within a week or so, you should see the search results update.
