Easy and tasty Peaches and Cream Cake

20140416-234616.jpg

I got this recipe from a cook book. The first reason I’m trying this is because I want to get rid of a can of peaches which has sat in my pantry for a while. If I don’t use the peaches soon they will be thrown in the bin, an experience that may be familiar to you. This recipe looks so easy and simple, and I don’t need to buy anything more. I might say I’m not a big fan of sweets but I love to eat this cake so I warn you, maybe one piece may not be enough.

• 3/4 cup caster sugar
