This is our 24th bake at The Home Bakers ( THB ), my overdue post again. This cake has been picked by Chaya of Bizzy Bakes and she is the host for this bake. Sorry Chaya, for this late posting.
I have used canned peaches as i couldnt get hold of those fresh peaches here and i have used almonds instead of cashew nuts as per in the original recipe. This is my second attempt baking this cake as my first one turned out to be uncooked at the center of the cake. Actually it is a very simple cake to bake, i suspected i didnt drain the peaches properly before adding to the cake resulting that the center of the cake was actually quite raw.
After reading Jasline's post and some of the comments on the same cake, i decided to try it again. I make sure that i pat the peaches really dry this time so that it would not further draw out much moisture from the peaches and i also noticed that Jasline sliced her peaches thin and resulting in a nice even cake surface. Look at the pic below and you will see what i mean.

This is a nice coffee type cake and a nice cake for a coffee break. To see the rest of the members who have already baked this cake, you can click here and being the rule of the event, only the host of the bake can post the recipe, so visit Chaya's blog for the full recipe.
