- STEP 1
Heat the oven to 180.c and line a 2lb loaf tin with baking parchment – I use loaf tin cases as it saves a lot of hassle crimping and creasing.
- STEP 2
In a large bowl place the flour, butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla extract and beat with an electric whisk until pale and creamy.
- STEP 3
Add the peach chunks and fold into the mixture.
- STEP 4
Spoon the mixture into your pre-lined loaf tin and bake in the oven for approximately 1 hour until golden on top and a skewer comes out clean.
- STEP 5
Meanwhile in a separate bowl add the lemon zest and juice, sugar and peach slices and leave to marinate – the sugar will dissolve to create a syrup.
- STEP 6
When the cake comes out of the oven, poke a few holes in the top with a skewer and arrange the marinated peach slices on top, spooning over some of the syrup as you go to give a nice glaze on the top of the cake.
- STEP 7
You can leave the cake in the tin until completely cool, and then remove and cut into 8 slices. Enjoy….
