Peaches ( we used tinned)

4 heaped teaspoons demerara sugar

Vanilla essence

125gr / 4 1/2oz butter

125gr / 4 1/2oz caster sugar

2 large free-range eggs

125gr / 4 1/2oz self-raising flour

Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/gas 4.

Put the peaches in a saucepan with the sugar, the vanilla and 4 tablespoons of water. Simmer for 5 minutes and then place into a well greased and lightly floured ovenproof dish or bowl.

Beat together the butter, caster sugar and eggs until light and fluffy. Add the flour, mix thoroughly and spread over the peaches.

Bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes. Remove from the oven and serve with hot custard or something cold, like vanilla ice-cream.
