Method

  1. Heat the oven to 180°C. Grease and line a 23cm loose-bottomed cake tin with baking paper.
  2. In a large bowl, beat together the butter and caster sugar with an electric hand mixer until pale and fluffy.
  3. In another bowl, beat together the eggs and honey, then gradually whisk into the butter and sugar mixture.
  4. Finally, fold in the flour and baking powder, before spooning into the tin.
  5. Peel and cut the peaches and slice in quarters, then place evenly across the top of the mixture. Sprinkle with the demerara sugar.
  6. Bake for 1 hour until risen, golden and a skewer pushed into the centre comes out clean. Check the cake after half hour, and if it’s browning too quickly, cover with a sheet of foil.
  7. Cool in the tin for half an hour before turning out onto a plate to serve.
