Peach and Walnut Cake with Orange Butter Cream Frosting

It’s no secret we love Wattie’s canned peaches, it’s the flavour of summer captured in a can. A great way to enjoy them is in this deliciously moist cake topped with a delicate orange butter cream icing. It’s perfect for a special afternoon tea or celebration.

1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Grease and line the base of a 23cm cake tin with baking paper.

3. In a mixing bowl beat the butter and brown sugar until creamy. Beat in the eggs one at a time until well mixed.
