• 410 g can Wattie's Peaches Sliced in Clear Fruit Juice, well drained
  • 200 g softened butter
  • 1 cup soft brown sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • ½ cup walnut pieces, chopped
  • ¾ cup sour cream
  • zest from 1/2 an orange
  • ½ cup fresh orange juice
  • 1 ¾ cup flour
  • 2 ½ tsp baking powder

  • Orange Butter Cream
  • 50 g softened butter
  • 1 ¼ cups icing sugar
  • juice of half an orange
  • zest of half an orange

1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Grease and line the base of a 23cm cake tin with baking paper.

2. Chop Wattie’s Peach Slices into small pieces.

3. In a mixing bowl beat the butter and brown sugar until creamy. Beat in the eggs one at a time until well mixed.

4. Add peaches, walnuts, sour cream, orange zest and juice. Sift in the flour and baking powder and mix together being careful not to over mix.

5. Spoon into prepared cake tin. Bake for 40-45 minutes until cooked. A skewer inserted into the centre of the cake will come out clean when the cake is cooked. Stand for 5 minutes before turning onto a cake rack to cool completely.

6. Spread butter cream frosting over the top of the cake and garnish with extra orange zest if wished.

How long will it last in cake tin or should I keep it in frig. Making it tomorrow. Sounds yummy.

Hi Carol,

This is a very moist cake and would last around 2 to 3 days. We wouldn't recommend keeping in the fridge, however the cake could be made and frozen, and then iced once thawed.

Hope this helps!

Cooked this cake today. Had to cook it for a lot longer than you said (over an hour) but it still looks like it is a bit undercooked. The ingredients are not cheap so I would not recommend this cake.

Hi Louise,

Thanks for taking the time to place feedback. We're sorry to hear the cake did not turn out as expected. The cooking times are only a guide and there is a great variation in oven temperatures plus some ovens only have a fan function. The trick is to get to get to know your oven and adjust accordingly, in this case you may need to increase the cooking time slightly.
