Peach Upside-Down Cake
Ingredients: (serves 8)
2 cups caned peach slices, drained
2/3 cup ground almonds
14 oz packet traditional English teacake mix
3 oz butter, softened
2/3 cup milk
1/3 cup apricot jam
Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease and line a 8 inch round cake pan. Arrange peaches in pan. Sprinkle with 2 tablespoons almonds.
Using an electric mixer, beat cake mix, eggs, butter and milk until combined. Increase speed to medium for 2 minutes. Fold through remaining almonds. Spread over peaches.
Bake for 50 to 60 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Allow to cool in pan for 10 minutes. Turn onto a wire rack to cool completely.
Heat jam in microwave on HIGH (100%) power for 30 seconds. Brush over peaches. Allow to set. Serve.
