Peach & Raspberry Slice

Today Iron Chef Shellie turns 4!

It’s been another amazing year to be a food blogger. Making lots of new friends, I finally got up to Sydney to gorge myself on Zumbo treaties and there was even a trip to New Zealand!

I hope you have enjoyed reading, and I hope we can share many more delicious posts together πŸ™‚

My slice didn’t turn out as pretty as the book, but that’s because the tin I used was smaller. It still tasted delicious though!

Peach & Raspberry Slice
Bill Granger

185g (6.5 oz or 1.5 cups) plain (all purpose flour)
1.5 teaspoons baking powder, plus an extra Β½ teaspoon extra
125g (4.5 oz) butter, chilled and diced
115g (4 oz or Β½ cup) soft brown sugar
115g (4 oz or Β½ cup) caster (superfine) sugar
3 ripe peaches, peeled and sliced into wedges
90g (3.25 oz or ΒΎ cup) raspberries – fresh or frozen
2 teaspoons natural vanilla extract
1 egg, lightly beaten
185ml (6 fl oz or 0.ΒΎ cup) milk

1. Preheat the oven to 180ΒΊC (350ΒΊF/Gas 4). Grease and line the base of a 20x30cm (8x12in) baking tray. Sift the flour and baking powder into a large bowl and then rub in the butter with your fingertips. Stir in both the sugars. Press half the mixture over the base of the tin. Lay the peaches over the top and sprinkle with raspberries.

2. Add the vanilla extract, extra baking powder, egg and milk to the rest of the base mixture and stir well – don’t worry too much about lumps. Pour evenly over the top of the peaches and raspberries and bake for 1 hour. Cool in the tray and then cut into squares to serve.

    Peach and raspberry! What a divine combination! I don’t usually cook with stone fruit – their season seems so short (especially here in the tropics) that I only want to eat them fresh. But this has changed my mind. I better get in quick the season is almost over! This is wonderful!
