Simple Peach Traybake

For me, Sunday afternoons spell baking. You know I have had a busy weekend if I go into work on a Monday morning without a tin of cakes or cookies I baked over the weekend.

This weekend was no exception, inspired by the sun I tried my hand at a peach traybake.


  • 250g butter
  • 300g golden caster sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1tsp vanilla essence
  • 200g self raising flour
  • 1tsp baking powder
  • drop of milk
  • 50g almonds
  • 5tsp raspberry jam
  • Tin of canned peaches in fruit juice (or use fresh if they are in season)
  • Handful of flaked almonds


  1. Grease your traybake tin and preheat the oven to 170 degrees
  2. Cream the butter and sugar
  3. Add the eggs one at a time and mix well
  4. Add the vanilla essence
  5. Add the flour and baking powder
  6. Add the almonds and mix well
  7. Add a little milk if the mixture seems to try and too hard to beat
  8. At the bottom of your traybake tin put some sliced peaches, cut the rest and mix them into your cake mix
  9. Pour the cake mix into the tray on top of all the peaches in the tray
  10. Add a few blobs of raspberry jam in places and top with flaked almonds
  11. Bake for around 1 hour, until golden brown

My colleagues gave fantastic feedback, and we think it would be fantastic as a desert served with warm custard.
