Peach and Almond Slice

Updated: May 10

I got some lovely ripe fresh peaches today when I was doing my shopping and was trying to decide what to do with them.


I wanted a cake that was quite simple but showcased the delicate and delicious flavour of the peaches.



I decided on a light almond sponge with the peaches and some crunchy flaked almonds on the top.



It's a lovely cake as it is with a cuppa or for a dessert with cream or custard!



Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees centigrade (160 fan) and line and grease a 23cm/ 9” square cake tin.



Melt the butter in a pan or in the microwave and set aside.



Peel and thinly slice the peaches - set aside for later.



In a medium sized bowl or in the bowl of a stand mixer place the flour, ground almonds, baking powder, sugar, eggs, almond extract and cooled melted butter.



Mix until everything is combined.



Put half the batter in the prepared tin and level.




Place the peach slices on top evenly distributed.



Put the rest of the batter over the peaches and sprinkle with the flaked almonds.



Bake for 50 minutes or until a skewer comes out cleanly.



Leave to cool before cutting into slices.
