    1. Drain the peaches in a sieve. Drizzle with cherry brandy and lemon juice and leave to infuse.
    2. Preheat oven to 220 C / Gas 7 and grease a springform cake tin.
    3. Beat the margarine until fluffy. Add salt and lemon zest first and then gradually stir in the sugar and eggs.
    4. Mix the flour with baking powder, fold into the margarine mixture, then add the lemon juice and cherry brandy mixture.
    5. Spoon the cake mixture into the prepared springform tin and spread the drained peaches over it. Sometimes I cut the peaches and arrange them in a pattern. Bake in the preheated oven for about 50 minutes.
    6. Sprinkle the finished cake with icing sugar or cinnamon (or both!).
