See recipe below for: JACK MONROE’S DEL MONTE PEACH DRIZZLE CAKE
- Del Monte® Peach Slices in Juice 1 can (425g)
- butter (softened) or baking spread 250g
- finely ground white sugar 200g
- medium eggs 3
- self-raising flour 250g, or, plain flour plus 1 1/2 tbsp baking powder
- icing sugar 100g
Tip 1: If you would like a little more moisture on the cake, you can boil the juice down a little to make a syrup (add a few teaspoonfuls of sugar if you want it really sticky and sweet). Gently punch some holes in the top of the cake with a fork, drizzle the syrup over and allow it to sink in a little before topping with the icing drizzle.
Tip 2: Leftovers will keep for up to four days in an airtight clean container in a cool dark place, or four months in the freezer. Best frozen in slices and defrosted whenever you fancy a quick treat!
