Ingredients

Peaches

Cake

Preparation

  1. With the rack in the lowest position, preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Generously butter a 9-inch (23 cm) square baking dish.

Peaches

  1. Spread the honey, sugar and lemon juice at the bottom of the dish. Place 9 of the peach halves into the dish, side-by-side in three rows, cut side down. Set aside.

Cake

  1. In a bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
  2. In another bowl, beat the egg whites with an electric mixer until soft peaks form. Gradually add ¾ cup (160 g) of the sugar, beating until stiff peaks form. Set aside.
  3. In a third bowl, cream the butter with the remaining sugar, the egg yolks and vanilla with an electric mixer. At low speed, add the dry ingredients alternately with the milk. Using a spatula, gently fold in the meringue.
  4. Spoon the batter over the peaches and bake for 50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean. Let cool for 15 minutes. Run a thin blade between the cake and the pan and unmould by inverting onto a plate. If desired, serve with vanilla ice cream. Delicious warm or cold.

Comments

  1. Added cinnamon and a pinch of nutmeg. Next time I will reduce the amount of sugar as the peaches were sweet on their own. Otherwise delightfully moist but airy cake.

  2. Just made this cake. looks just like the picture. Its a Soft Moist and yummy cake. Next time i will add cinnamon as another review suggested. I only needed 3 medium sized peaches. There is a good height to the cake. Thank you Ricardo for sharing. This is a pretty cake too with little effort. Great for entertaining.

  3. Can you please advise how I could increase the amounts to make this cake in a 9x13 inch pan? I need to make a cake for 12 people. Thank you!

  4. Made this today as I had 5 peaches that were starting to go soft. I used half whole wheat flour and half brown sugar. It took an extra 10 minutes in the oven but it turned out beautifully. My husband is eating a second piece as I am typing this! Thanks for another great recipe.

  5. Can you freeze this recipe? Thank you Ricardo.

  6. I live in Australia, so peaches aren't in season. Can I substitute pears for this yummy cake? Thanks :)

  7. Made this last night and got raves from my family. The only change I made was that I added about 1 tsp cinnamon as I love it with fruit. Will be making this again, thanks, Ricardo!

  8. Seems yummy!! Will make it tommorow morning!!!. I have a question, is it ok if i use self-raising flour instead of unbleached all-purpose and leave out the baking powder of course in for the batter ?
