Peach pudding. – A Summer essential.

I absolutely gobsmacked at how long it has been since I put a dessert recipe up. I’m about to put a stop to that with an amazing recipe for Peach pudding. If you want to be technical about it, its essentially a peach upside down cake. BUT similar to the banana & butterscotch pudding I love so much, there’s a beautiful, sweet and summery sauce to drown your slice of peach topped sponge with. Delicious!

Okay, so i’m gunna’ jump straight in and tell you what you’ll need:

– 5 ripe Peaches

– 135g plain flour

– Tsp baking powder

– Tsp salt

– Tsp vanilla extract

– 185g butter

– 135g caster sugar

– 4 eggs

– 100g brown sugar

– sprinkle of ground nutmeg





And here’s what you’ll need to do:


First, slice up your peaches and grease up your cake tray. Nice simple step.

Secondly, lay out your sliced pieces in the bottom of your cake tin how you want them to sit on the top of your cake. I’ve gone for a fairly simple fanned layout.

Then, sprinkle over your brown sugar, nutmeg. Melt down 50g of your butter and pour that over too.

Place your tin in on the top shelf of a pre-heated oven at 200 degree (I use a fan assisted oven) for around fifteen minutes. You can give it a slight shake  half way through, but be careful of your peach layout.

Whilst  your peaches are baking, combine the rest of your butter and caster sugar in a bowl, cream together before adding your eggs and vanilla.

Now add your flour, giving it all a good stir.

Once your peaches have softened a little, take your tray out of the oven. Pour over your sponge cake mixture and put back in the oven – middle shelf this time- on 180 for around 30 mins, or until the cake is firm and cooked through.

When your cake is cooked, you need to take it out of the oven and set aside for five minutes to cool a little.

Once your ready to turn out, do just that. I find it easier for these saucy cakes to lay the cake stand on top of the cake tin, and flip with both hands.

Serve up a slice, with a good quality vanilla ice cream and an extra serving of sweet sauce for the ultimate Peaches and cream dessert.
