Last night after dinner I wanted dessert (as usual) and in an attempt to eat healthy decided to eat fruit instead, on opening the fridge I saw fresh peaches staring at me in fact begging me to put them to good use!, so at 10 in the night inspiration struck like a bolt of lightening at at 10:10, I put this cake to bake in the oven, sharp at 11:00 I had my dessert and went to sleep dreaming sweet dessert dreams...
I wanted the cake to have that really fresh peachy flavor but did not have any peach derivative like extract, jam,or preserve at hand then suddenly I remembered a package of Nestle Peach Iced tea premix and this impossibly delicious cake was born.
- Fresh peach-1 large, skinned and sliced
- All purpose flour-1/2 cup
- Iced tea premix-5 tsp
- Sugar-5 tsp (since the Iced tea already has sugar and the peaches I had were tart, adjust acc. to your preference and peaches)
- Baking powder-1/2 tsp
Add 2-3 tbsp water to the Iced tea mix and keep aside, layer a baking pan with foil and arrange peach slices in circular pattern.Combine egg, sugar and beat well, add the Iced tea and flour+baking powder in the end.Pour carefully on the peach slices and bake for 30-40 minutes at 180C in a preheated oven.
Really simple and one of the best tasting cakes I have ever had...all the flavors came together so well, the tartness of the peaches mellowed down with the chai flavor, the cake itself turned out incredibly soft and smooth, take it a notch up and serve with whipped cream...ahhh heaven! will definitely be making this again.
