Happy 2015! Here's a peach and apricot cake recipe

Happy New Year my friends! I trust you've had a wonderful Holiay season and a great start to the year.

The past few weeks have been rejuvenating and relaxing for me - no blogging, no Facebook, no Instagram. No. Social. Media. I went back to basics and spent much time with friends and family and stayed mostly at home, tending to my garden, reading books, chasing the boy, watched Stu build us a new vegetable patch (yay!). And I baked this summery peach and apricot cake to share with a lovely bunch of friends one day.
Peach and apricot tea cake

Ingredients

175g butter, melted
Peaches and apricot (2 each, sliced)
3/4 caster sugar
3 eggs
1 cup self raising flour, sifted
1/4 cup milk

Method

1. Preheat oven to 160 degrees celsius. Grease a round 22cm springform pan and line base with non-stick baking paper.

2. Put butter, caster sugar, eggs, flour and milk into the food processor and pulse until the mixture forms a thick smooth consistency.

3. Pour the batter into prepared cake tin and top with peaches and apricots

4. Bake for 1 hour or until cooked (skewer inserted into centre should come out clean).

Happy New Year to you! Sounds like a lovely relaxing time you've had. After what felt like a hectic December we slowed after Christmas too. Lots of time recharging the batteries outside at home, in the garden and staying cool. Your cake looks delicious, I don't usually stray from chocolate or banana cake but I would love to give this one a go! x Dre

i've never heard of this, but it sounds amazing!

Elisa @ Globetrotting in Heels said...

oh my goodness, this sounds absolutely delicious and I would love a slice right now, to enjoy with my cup of Earl Grey!

I have to try this, though I will have to convert it to gluten-free and see if I can find frozen peaches... maybe I should save it for summer :-)

Happy New Year!

Happy new year Trishie, good for you for not having Instagram. It's hard once you get hooked to it. I know coz I have one..
Thanks for this recipe, so easy and perfect for summer too, the fruits are in season. I might give it a try.
