You'll need

225 gm (1½ cups) plain flour 1 tsp baking powder 5 eggs 220 gm (1 cup) caster sugar 1 tsp vanilla bean paste 115 gm unsalted butter, melted 395 gm canned condensed milk 375 ml (1½ cups) canned evaporated milk 250 ml (1 cup) milk 500 ml (2 cups) pouring cream 4 peaches, cut into wedges

Method

  • 01
  • Preheat oven to 180C and lightly butter a 3-litre baking dish. Sift flour, baking powder and ½ tsp salt into a bowl. Whisk eggs and 165gm sugar in an electric mixer on high speed until thick and pale (7-8 minutes). Transfer to a large bowl, fold in flour mixture and vanilla, then fold in butter. Spoon into prepared baking dish, smooth top and bake until golden brown, and a skewer inserted comes out clean (30-35 minutes).
