A Day For Some Home Baking ........
Hello everyone, I'm back after a short break !!!
The white stuff is also back, only a few centimeters at the moment but more is fore casted for later on !!! So I thought I would stay in & try out some new cake receipts. I love Jewish & Eastern European cakes & desserts so I had a nosey on the net & found this receipt that took my fancy. I have changed the measurements from cups to ounces as I couldn't find my measuring cups & I think it's turned out rather well & is very yummy & moreish.

Peach & Cinnamon Cake with Crumble Topping


8oz SR Cake Flour
8oz Softened Butter
8oz Golden Caster Sugar
1 tsp Cinnamon
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
4 Eggs
1-2 tbsp Cold Water (I have always found that by adding a little water & not milk makes cakes lighter)
I Can of sliced peaches (drained & slightly chopped)


3oz Flour
2oz Brown Sugar
1oz Butter

Pre heat oven to 180 oC

In a large bowl mix all the ingredients together until the batter has a light dropping consistency (don't over mix or you will have a heavy cake !!!). Spoon half the batter into a greased & floured 9" cake tin. Arrange chopped peaches over then spoon remaining batter over the top.

Now make the topping crumble as you would a normal crumble mix, then sprinkle all over the top. Bake for about 1 hour, ( my cake took 1 hour 10mins !! ) Leave to cool in the tin for 30 mins before turning out onto a cooling rack.

Then enjoy with a nice cup of tea or coffee !!!!
