I used only half the amount of sugar that the recipe called for, and did a demerara-white sugar combo. The nuttiness of the demerara really comes through and enhances the flavour of the peaches in this cake.

In This Recipe
Preheat oven to 180 C and grease a 9” spring-form / regular pan.
Sift the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt into a bowl and mix to combine.
Pour the prepared batter into the greased pan and arrange one layer of peach slices on top. (Note : I did 2 layers and added the 2nd layer of peaches halfway through cooking time). Once half-cooked, arrange another layer on top and sprinkle with sugar before putting the cake back into the oven to finish cooking.* You could do only 1 layer, in which case, sprinkle some granulated sugar on the peaches before you put the cake in the oven.
