peach & raspberry delight

I love comforting easy recipes the kind that are no mixer required, quick & easy and use what ever you have in your press or fridge. This Peach & Berry Delight is definitely  a slice of Summer in the middle of Winter. I noticed recently that most of my favorite recipes use tinned or frozen fruit  of one sort or another!

I am absolutely not a “fruit snob” when it comes to baking with fruit, don’t get me wrong I really love baking with fresh fruit and you really can’t beat juicy fresh strawberries for a delicious Victoria sponge, ( I have a lovely recipe for a Red Velvet Strawberry Cake that is worth checking out in an earlier blog post,) but more often then not I always go for tinned fruit or frozen fruit  or a mixture of both in certain bakes especially muffins or upside-down cakes

In my weekly shop I make sure I throw in at least 2/3 tins of tinned fruit into the trolley. I have quite a collection of tinned fruit. It’s a big laugh in my house that if you look for a tin of beans for beans on toast  you will more than likely  find a couple of tin’s of pears or peaches but NO beans!.. I will have to come up with a dinner recipe that uses pears, though my family will tell you I am a better baker than I am a cook and have on more than one occasion served a cake for dinner!!

This particular Peach & Berry Delight is so delicious, looks beautiful and best of-all very easy to bake which is most definitely a huge bonus.

It uses frozen berries and 1 tin peaches, works great as a summer or winter desert. Serve with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream in the summer or a dollop of warm custard in the winter. Of course it would be just as delicious served on its own with a cup of coffee

It also has yogurt in it for that extra moistness. I used natural yogurt because that’s what was in my fridge but if you have some vanilla or berry yogurt that would be even better..

This Peaches & Berry  Delight is what the Americans would call a “coffee” cake a term which always use to confuse me because these cakes had no coffee in them, but thanks to watching Anna Olsen ‘s  “Bake with Anna” , I realised they call them coffee cakes because they serve them with a cup of coffee! DUH


Peach & Berry Delight

This Peach & Berry Delight really lives up to its name, mix up the batter , pour into a tin place the fruit on top. Halfway through the bake throw in a couple of extra berries on top to give a nice effect.

You could swap out the frozen mixed berries for just raspberries or blueberries or use up what ever you have in your freezer or press.

It doesn’t need any decoration but a dusting of icing sugar

    I always have frozen berries on hand and love recipes that call for frozen rather than fresh (which requires a trip to the store). This finished cake looks absolutely lovely.

    Would love to try this cake also but can you please tell me if I need to defrost the berries before adding them.
    thank you

    • Karyn July 23, 2018 at 10:38 am

      Hi Maria 😉 No just use frozen berries and don’t forget halfway through baking add a few more extra berries and peaches. This usually cooks in a bout 60mins for me but your oven could be different x
