It's ages since I posted about cooking here.
I guess I haven't tried anything new for a while
but recently we were having guests for dinner and I knew at once it was an opportunity to try a recipe I had set aside for an occasion like this.
It's a recipe that uses packaged store bought custard - not something I usually have in the house - and it makes a large pudding that would easily serve 10 people so not exactly something for the two of us to try as we don't normally eat dessert ~ A little fruity yoghurt is our usual dessert.
250 g butter
1 cup caster sugar
1 cup buttermilk
2 cups Self Raising flour
400g of good quality, THICK, store bought vanilla custard ( you could easily substitute your own home-made here but make it thick !)
400g canned peach slices, drained
1/3 cup slivered almonds
* Set oven at 180 C ( 350 F) and grease a 3 litre dish
*Beat the butter and sugar in a large bowl of your electric mixer till light and creamy
* Beat in eggs one at a time
*In two batches stir in the buttermilk and the flour
* Spread half the mixture into the baking dish then spread over all of the custard.
* Drop the remaining mixture in spoonfuls over the top. Top with peach slices ( I though it was a bit light on with peaches and would use a big can next time).
*Sprinkle over slivered almonds and bake for 45 minutes or until golden brown
