- 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
Set the oven to 190°C/375°F/Gas Mark 5. Put the flour and spice into a food processor with the butter. Pulse to form crumbs.
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.
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.
Arrange the drained peaches evenly over the cake mixture, then spoon on the reserved clumpy crumble, leaving some of the fruit uncovered.
Bake for 20 mins or until a skewer inserted into the centre of the cake mixture comes out clean.
Cut into chunky slices and dust with icing sugar to serve
