Peach, raspberry and ricotta crumble cake


You'll need

220 gm sour cream 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda 300 gm (2 cups) plain flour 220 gm (1 cup) raw caster sugar 160 gm softened butter 30 gm almond meal Finely grated rind of 2 limes 1 tsp vanilla bean paste 1 tsp baking powder 2 eggs 3 ripe peaches, halved and thinly sliced 125 gm raspberries, plus extra to serve 200 gm firm ricotta, coarsely crumbled For dusting: pure icing sugar, sieved   Vanilla-lime syrup 330 gm (1½ cups) caster sugar 1 vanilla bean, split, seeds scraped Juice of 3 limes, finely grated rind of 1½

Method

  • 01
  • Stir sour cream and bicarbonate of soda in a jug to combine and set aside to foam (2-3 minutes; mixture will increase in volume).
  • 02
  • Preheat oven to 180C. Pulse flour, sugar, butter, almond meal, lime rind, vanilla, baking powder and ½ tsp sea salt in a food processor until crumbly. Transfer 1 cup of mixture to a separate bowl and set aside. Add eggs and sour cream mixture to food processor, pulse until just smooth, then spread half in the base of a 20cm square cake tin buttered and lined with baking paper. Scatter with half the peaches, half the raspberries, half the ricotta and one-third of the reserved crumb mixture. Spread remaining sour cream mixture over and smooth top. Scatter with remaining peaches, raspberries, ricotta and crumb mixture and bake until golden and an inserted skewer withdraws clean (1-1¼ hours; cover with foil if cake begins to brown too much). Set aside to cool in tin (15 minutes), turn onto a wire rack to cool completely, then dust with icing sugar. Peach, raspberry and ricotta crumble cake will keep stored in an airtight container for 2 days.
  • 03
  • Meanwhile, for vanilla-lime syrup, stir sugar, vanilla and 200ml water in a saucepan over medium-high heat until sugar dissolves, bring to the boil and cook to infuse (5 minutes). Remove from heat, stir in lime juice and rind, transfer to a jar, set aside to cool and refrigerate to chill.
  • 04
  • Serve cake with vanilla-lime syrup and extra raspberries.
This recipe is from the February 2013 issue of Australian Gourmet Traveller.
