A summery peach-cake or ‘why does it always rain on me?’ – #ichbacksmir

Yesterday afternoon I realized that I haven’t done my blogpost this week and that it is ‘ich backs mir’-time at tastesheriff’s blog again…what a perfect reason for baking something!
This months topic is ‘Rührkuchen’ which is something like a pound cake.
As I find a classic plain ‘Rührkuchen’ is sometimes not the perfect thing for summer I decided to add peaches to it, to give it a summery taste.

But what has ‘why does it always rain on me?’ got to do with all that?
Well, when you’re very late with your weekly blogpost and you need to bake the cake the night before…you might realize that at 10pm it is slightly too dark to take okay pictures for the blog. As a consequence that means you have to get up early the next morning, go in the garden and take pictures. And guess what happens then, when you for once need to be outside for 10 minutes? Exactly, it starts raining.
So just imagine me, standing there, still sleepy…trying to take pictures really quickly to avoid the camera and the cake getting wet…this is when I couldn’t help but think ‘why does it always rain on me??’ :).

But anyway…this post is not supposed to be about rain. It is about ‘Rührkuchen’. It is the first time I worked peaches in a dough…but I have to say it worked quite well. So here it is, my this months ‘ichbacksmir’-recipe:

Summery peach cake:

you need:
210g butter
90g icing sugar
90g honey
6 eggs
150g flour
1.5 tsp baking powder
90g almonds, finely grated
3 peaches, half of them in puree

First of all you mix together butter, sugar and honey. Now add the eggs, and afterwards the almonds and the flour. The last step is to chop half of the peaches in fine pieces and make puree out of the rest. Add the pieces and puree to the dough.
Once the dough is ready just bake it for around 20-30 minutes, depending on your oven.
When the cake is baked and has cooled down you can sprinkle a bit of icing sugar on it with a sieve. That looks really nice.

Now I say thanks to Clara for that wonderful idea and then I’m off to enjoy my weekend. The cake will be eaten after a Barbecue tonight.
Have a great weekend :).

P.s.: soon I have great news for you about a little project that I am planning with a fellow blogger…I am excited!
