INGREDIENTS

For the Caramel

  • 60 grams butter
  • 100 grams brown sugar
  • 500 grams peach slices fresh or canned (if using canned peaches drain and pat dry with a paper towel) Note: a 820 gram can of peach slices = about 500 grams of peaches when drained.

For the Cake

  • 160 grams plain flour
  • 1 ¼ teaspoons baking powder level
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 120 grams butter softened
  • 150 grams sugar
  • 1 egg room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 125 grams milk room temperature

INSTRUCTIONS

Preheat oven to 160°C. Grease the inside of a 20 x 20 cm (8 x 8 inch) square cake tin.

    Caramel

    • Melt the butter and stir in the brown sugar. Spread the mixture evenly into the base of the prepared tin.
    • Arrange the drained peach slices over the brown sugar mixture. Put aside.

    Cake

    • Place all the ingredients into a large mixing bowl and beat with an electric mixer for about 2 minutes.
    • Use a spoon to dollop the batter evenly over the arranged peaches. Use the back of a spoon to even the batter, and make sure that the mixture is slightly lower in the middle.
    • Bake for 30 – 40 minutes, or until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean.
    • Remove from the oven, place on a wire rack and cool for 10 minutes before turning out on to a wire rack or serving plate.
