Ingredients

  • 200g soft butter , plus extra for greasing
  • 200g self-raising flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 200g golden caster sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tbsp milk

For the peach topping

  • 3 ripe peaches
  • 85g light brown sugar

For the filling

  • 2 x 116g tubs clotted cream
  • 2 tbsp golden caster sugar
  • 1⁄2 tsp vanilla extract

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat the oven to 180C/160f fan/gas 4, line the tins and make the sponge base as described in the 'goes well with' recipe (below right), but do not divide it between the tins just yet.

  • STEP 2

    Halve and stone the peaches, then cut each half into 4. Toss the peaches with the sugar, then arrange in a single layer in one of the tins. Tip half the cake mix over the peaches and the other half into the second tin. Bake for 20-25 mins until cooked and golden – the tin containing the peaches may take 5-10 mins longer than the other. Leave to cool on a wire rack while you make the filling.

  • STEP 3

    Whisk the clotted cream with the sugar and vanilla until stiff. Spread this over the plain sponge, then carefully top with the peach sponge.
