    Serves: 8 

    • 3 (400g) tins sliced peaches in syrup, drained well
    • 70g butter, melted
    • 145g soft brown sugar
    • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
    • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
    • 350g butter, softened
    • 200g caster sugar
    • 2 large eggs

    • 2 teaspoons baking powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 240ml whole milk

    Prep:30min  ›  Cook:2hr  ›  Extra time:20min drying  ›  Ready in:2hr50min 

    1. Spread peach slices between several layers of kitchen roll and let dry, gently pressing occasionally and replacing any soaked paper, about 20 minutes.
    2. Meanwhile, pour melted butter into the bottom of the slow cooker ceramic bowl. Stir brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg together in a bowl and scatter over the butter.
    3. Arrange peaches in a tight layer over brown sugar. You may need to make a partial second layer to fit them all in.
    4. Beat softened butter with caster sugar in a large bowl with an electric mixer until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Beat in eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in almond extract.
    5. Whisk together flour, baking powder and salt in a separate bowl. Working in batches, stir flour mixture into egg mixture alternately with milk, beginning and ending with flour mixture. Mix batter until well combined. Spoon over peaches and spread evenly.
    6. Drape pieces of kitchen roll over the top of slow cooker (to absorb any condensation during baking), then cover with lid. Cook on High until a skewer inserted into centre of the cake comes out clean, about 2 to 2 1/2 hours.
    7. Remove lid and kitchen roll. Using oven mitts, remove ceramic bowl from slow cooker and let cool 10 minutes. Run a knife around edge of cake and carefully turn out onto a serving platter.

    Made this recipe using Gluten Free Flour, it was absolutely delicious.  -  14 Aug 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I have made this twice, exactly as written. It is excellent! Cake is light and flavorful, peach topping is heavenly. I have used frozen peaches that I thawed out ahead of time. Edges will get crusty, but my family likes that and we fight over the crusty edge parts. Takes 2.5 hours in my 6 qt slow cooker. Never thought about making desserts in the slow cooker before, now I am sold!  -  31 May 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    The flavor of the cake was nice. It was a bit crumbly though. It did burn a bit around the edge by the time the inside was cooked and it never quite caramelized which was disappointing. Maybe I did something wrong? Peach was a nice twist on traditional so I will likely try again just to see if I messed up somehow.  -  13 Apr 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
