Just Peachy!


So I went live over on my Instagram page last evening, but alas, midway I lost connectivity and could not reconnect to finish the live workshop.

But, I kept my chin up and finished baking this gorgeous cake, along with some baked peaches.

I am sharing the recipe below. Thank you to all of you who joined in!


Baked Peaches


These are so easy to make but show up as a really sophisticated dessert when served with a scoop of ice cream on the side.

This is great to prepare for parties, when you want to impress with very little work!





Ingredients


3 peach halves

2 tbsp brown sugar

2 tbsp very soft butter

2 tbsp honey

1 tsp cinnamon powder

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 tsp rum/bourbon (optional)


Method


-Add all of the ingredients to a bowl (except for the peaches) and whisk them together real good until it's incorporated nicely

-Pour this mixture into the center of each peach and drizzle the remaining liquid around.

-Bake in a pre heated oven at 180C for 15 minutes


Peach Cake


Such a light and delicious tea time cake. I do love incorporating fruit in my cakes. It makes them feel less of an indulgence while having all the element of one!!




Ingredients


2 sliced peaches

1 1/2 cup flour

1 1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

6 tbsp butter (85 gms)

1 cup castor sugar

1 egg / 1/4 cup yogurt

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 cup milk


Method


-Preheat the oven to 180 C

-Add the flour, baking powder and salt to a bowl and give it a mix

-In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar. To this add in the egg (or yogurt), milk and vanilla extract and mix until incorporated nicely.

-You will have a lovely smooth batter

-Pour this batter into a prepared baking tin

-Place the peach slices on the top, quite closely together in a pretty pattern

-Bake at 180 C for around 35 to 40 minutes
