There's no denying it, I'm a sucker for cookware, and when a new culinary temptation is placed in front of me I start deliberating that inevitable purchase. To paraphrase James Brown's iconic hit title...Mama's "got a new bag".......Let me introduce you to my latest cake mold purchase and inspiration for this next post ( of course any 10 inch cake or tube pan will do the job!)
The recipe I chose to christen my new acquisition is an adaptation of a standard spice cake recipe in which I adjusted the spices to compliment the addition of peach puree to the cake batter. Yup, you read right, peach sauce. I'm fully aware that summer has long past but fortunately my freezer held a small reserve from this season's bounty. I figured, why not try incorporating it in a cake recipe? If it works with other fruits like apples and pineapple, why not peaches? Nothing ventured, nothing gained so I'm glad I took my chances and I'm very pleased with the results. The cake is moist with autumn spices running lightly through it to compliment the delicate sweetness of the Ontario summer peaches. Perfect served with a dusting of confectioners sugar.
