A few days ago my sister sent me a picture of a plum cake she made, and it looked so delicious I immediately wanted my own! The only problem was - I didn't have any plums at home, so I made do with peaches instead.
These days, I try to be more organized when working in the kitchen. I make it a point to check that the dishwasher is empty so that I can put the used kitchenware away as soon as I don't need it anymore. Also, I prepare all the ingredients before I get started in order to have everything ready when I need it.
First, I mixed the pre-warmed butter with powdered sugar. When using powdered sugar, always put it through a sieve to prevent those persistent knobs.
The yolks were then added to the butter-suggar mix and mixed really well. This is important - really mix until the batter turns almost white.
In the meantime, I cut the peaches into slices.
The whole things goes into a springform pan and flattened.
And covered with slices of peach. You can go creative in the way you spread the fruit here!
And off into the oven!
In the meantime, I put the rest of the peaches into a pot along with some water, sugar and cinnamon in order to make some compote to go with the cake.
After 30 min in the oven, the cake is ready!
