Redcurrant and Sour Peach Hearts Cake

If you love sour peach heart lollies, then this cake is the perfect recipe for you. While you can create a regular shaped sour peach hearts cake, if you want to make it extra special for a birthday, Valentine’s day or another occasion, you can bake the cake into a heart shape. Of course, if you are feeling especially creative, you could shape and decorate your cake to make it into a real showstopper. 

Ingredients to Make a 20 Centimetre Cake:

250 grams self raising flour

One teaspoon baking powder

175 grams golden caster sugar

175 grams softened butter

Two beaten eggs

Four tablespoons milk

One teaspoon vanilla extract

175 millilitres of sour cream

100 grams of red currants

Five tablespoons of peach jam

Three ripe peaches (stoned, skinned and halved)

Heat your oven to 170ºc and grease your cake tin. Place the peach halves, cut side up into the base of your cake tin. Dot the peach jam around the peaches and scatter your redcurrants. This will be the top of your cake, so you may want to create a pattern or just be playfully random with the fruit.

In a large bowl, cream the eggs and sugar until fluffy and light. Fold in the flour and baking powder. Mix in the vanilla, milk and sour cream until the mixture is well combined. Spoon the mixture into the tin carefully to avoid disturbing the fruit. Ensure that the surface of the cake is level before baking for approximately 35 minutes. The finished cake should be golden brown and well risen. If you press the cake surface lightly, it should spring back.

Allow the cake to cool in the tin for five minutes before turning out onto a plate.

Serving Suggestions:

This sour peach hearts cake is delicious cold as a cake served with a cup of coffee, but it can also make a fantastic dessert. It can be served warm with vanilla ice cream or cream. If you want to adorn your cake a little more, consider dotting sour peach hearts on the plate and drizzling with a redcurrant jus.

The cake will stay fresh in an airtight container for two or three days. If eating warm, it is best fresh from the oven, but if this may not be possible. If you want to serve the cake warm from cold, avoid microwaving as this may make the cake go soggy. Instead, sprinkle with a few drops of water before putting in the oven for several minutes. The water will help to prevent the cake from going dry. Take care not to leave in the oven for two long or you may end up with the peaches becoming more than a little caramelized.
