BLACKBERRY & PEACH STREUSEL TRAY BAKE

(Adapted from BBC Good Food)

Ingredients:

For the topping:

175g plain flour

140g light muscovado sugar

140g butter, softened

1 teaspoon cinnamon

For the cake:

150g butter, softened

150g caster sugar

3 eggs

175g plain flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

2-3 tablespoons milk

2-3 peaches, sliced (or canned fruit in natural juice)

70g blackberries

icing sugar for dusting (optional)

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 180C/160C fan oven. Grease a 23cm square cake tin with butter or oil and line with the parchment paper.
  2. Put the topping ingredients in a food processor and pulse it until it resembles a sticky crumble.
  3. In a separate bowl,  mix the cake ingredients, except milk and fruits, gradually adding enough milk to make a creamy mixture that drops from the spoon. Spread the batter in the tin, arrange the peach slices on top, followed by blackberries. Then top with the crumble and press down lightly.
  4. Bake for 50 minutes or until golden and skewer inserted comes out clean. Cool in the tin, cut into 16 squares and dust with icing sugar.

  1. Beautiful! What a treat! I just watched The Great British Bake Off for the first time and realized how different words are in the UK and Canada. The identical foods often have totally different names and I have to pause the show to look them up. I’m now proud to say that I know what a tray bake is haha!

    • Haha 🙂
      Thank you.
      I love The Great British Bake off, but most of my bakes are far from GBB standards, especially ‘looks wise’ 🙂
