  1. Preheat oven to 200 C / Gas 6. Lightly grease a 20cm square cake tin.
  2. Place sliced peaches in prepared tin. Mix together 200g sugar, lemon juice, lemon zest and almond extract. Place in oven while preparing crumble (heating peaches first helps prevent dough from getting soggy).
  3. In a large bowl combine flour, 1 tablespoon sugar, baking powder and salt. Rub in margarine until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add milk and egg; stir just until flour is moistened. Spread over hot peaches and sprinkle top with remaining sugar.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 35 to 40 minutes, or until top is golden brown.
