The Crazy Kitchen: Sex on the Beach Cake

Sex on the Beach Cake

At the weekend it was the birthday of a friend and I'd agreed to make her a cake. Earlier in the day I'd picked up a can of 'on the beach' (note no 'Sex') from Asda which inspired me to make a 'Sex on the Beach' type cake. I used my favourite recipe of the moment but instead of using root vegetables I instead used tinned peaches, along with a couple of fruity additions and left out the cocoa. The end result, although didn't really taste peachy, was a very moist cake that everyone enjoyed.

Sex on the Beach Cake

115g tinned peaches, pureed
115g butter, softened
170g caster sugar
3 Eggs
170g Self Raising flour
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
grated zest of a large orange
2 tbsp Cranberry Vodka

  • Beat the peach puree, butter and sugar together
  • Add the eggs, one at a time, with a spoonful of flour with each egg
  • Sift the remaining flour and bicarbonate of soda in and mix well
  • Stir in the orange zest and vodka
  • Pour into a greased and lined 21cm cake tin and bake for 30 minutes, until springy to the touch
  • Decorate with icing made up with cranberry vodka and a little orange juice
