Too many peaches - time for pudding

I got all excited when the SPC peaches were 4 tins for $6 at the supermarket. Obviously, I hadn't actually thought about what I would DO with all those peaches. I'm terrible at grocery shopping.

But this week inspired me by being INCREDIBLY FREAKIN' COLD. I wanted hot pudding, and I wanted to use up peaches... so, peach sponge!

The recipe is from this site here. I wouldn't say it's truly a sponge - it's more of a light cake. Never mind, it's warm and it's tasty. It makes enough for 4 servings, or maybe 6 if you have icecream...

So, you need:

  • 60g of soft butter/margarine
  • 1/4 cup of brown sugar (or just use white sugar if that's what you've got)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup flour (yes, that's all)
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup of milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla essence/extract
  • A drained can of peaches! Just the one.

Seriously, this is so easy. Turn the oven onto 180°C. Grease a Pyrex dish, or you could use individual ramekins.

Dump all the peaches into the dish. Everything else goes into a mixing bowl, beat it until it is light and fluffy. Then throw the cake mix on top of the peaches.

Put the dish into the oven, leave it there until it's done. In theory, this could take half an hour. If you have a crappy oven like mine, it will be closer to an hour. You will know it's done when the top is a little brown, and the cake is firm to the touch (i.e. you don't accidentally poke a hole in it when you check it).

Eat it warm! We didn't have any toppings, but it would go well with custard or vanilla icecream.


  1. So three other peach recipes coming up? Or are you going to try and find something that requires three cans of peaches?? ;)

  2. Good question! I have a feeling the other three recipes might be "peaches and icecream", "peaches and custard" and... "peaches".

    Hahaha not sure I can maintain this level of domesticness!

  3. Peach pudding looks delicious. I am going to try it - just bought a can of peaches today and this sounds quick and easy, my favourite sort of dessert.

  4. It really is easy! I hope you enjoy it :-)
