I went on a bit of a peach bender.
Making peach ice lollies, blending them into my morning smoothie (more on that obsession later...), revelling in their thick ripe smell when walking into the kitchen...
...and baking them into soft peach loaves.
125gr golden caster sugar
25ml almond liqueur
160gr self raising flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
Small pinch of salt
2 peaches, stoned and chopped into chunks around 2cm squared
1, Line a small loaf tin (I used this one - medium sized) with parchment paper and preheat your oven to 160o/c.
2, In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until pale and fluffy.
3, Beat in the eggs, liqueur and a tablespoon of the flour to prevent curdling.
4, Fold in the rest of the flour gently until you have a smooth batter.
5, Fold in the chopped peaches and spoon the batter into the prepared loaf tin.
6, Bake for 45-55 minutes until lightly coloured and an inserted skewer comes out clean.
7, Cool completely before serving.
