  • about 1.35kg peaches, peeled and sliced
  • 3 tbsp caster sugar
  • 2 tbsp peach brandy
  • 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp cornflour
  • 115g plain flour
  • 1½ tsp baking powder

Step 1

Preheat a 220°C oven.

In a bowl, toss the peaches with the sugar, peach brandy, lemon juice and cornflour.

Step 3

Spoon the peach mixture into a 3½ pt (2 litre) baking dish.

For the topping, sift the flour, baking powder and salt into a mixing bowl. Stir in the ground almonds and all put 1 tablespoon of the sugar. With 2 knives, or a pastry blender, cut in the butter or margarine until the mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs.
