Woman's Weekly recipe Why not turn your fruit crumble into a crumble cake? Our peach crumble cake is so easy and quick to make, just bake for 20 mins then cut into big slices for an afternoon treat


  • 350g (12oz) self-raising flour
  • 2 level tsp mixed spice
  • 175g (6oz) butter, cut into pieces
  • 150g (5oz) golden caster sugar
  • 8 tbsp buttermilk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 415g can peaches in syrup, drained
  • Icing sugar, for dusting
You will also need
  • 18 x 28cm (7 x 11in) tin, lined with Bakewell paper

Use any canned fruit you fancy for this crumble cake.


  1. Set the oven to 190C/375F/Gas Mark 5. Put the flour and spice into a food processor with the butter. Pulse to form crumbs.
  2. Add the sugar and 3 tbsp of the buttermilk. Pulse to make a very coarse, clumpy crumble. Tip out into a bowl, then put two-thirds of the mixture back in the food processor and set aside the rest.
  3. Add the remaining buttermilk and the vanilla extract to the mixture in the processor and blend to a smooth consistency. Spoon into the prepared tin and smooth the top.
  4. Arrange the drained peaches evenly over the cake mixture, then spoon on the reserved clumpy crumble, leaving some of the fruit uncovered.
  5. Bake for 20 mins or until a skewer inserted into the centre of the cake mixture comes out clean.
  6. Cut into chunky slices and dust with icing sugar to serve

I love this, its a new lease especially when you want to take some cruble to work but theres no microwaves and its a a loveley coffe break treat. i will be making this one tomorrow for sure!!


Nice cake - but I take issue with the baking time! I made this, and yes, it's delicious - but ... I followed the recipe meticulously, taking care to be accurate with the ingredients and their amounts. I made sure the oven was heated to the stated temperature before putting it in - and it took over an hour (around 1 hour 15 mins) to bake. And yes, my oven's perfectly reliable.
