Dulce De Leche Nectarine Cake

We are running with a new combination of dulce de leche and nectarines as they are now in season. How you choose to combine them is entirely up to you, from simply eating alone with dulce de leche or by making this delicious cake and drizzling dulce de leche all over it. This cake is fun to make and full of flavour with a soft and light interior. Great for those hot summer days!
Yields1 Serving
Cook Time50 mins


 600 g Fresh Nectarines
 1 qt Lemon Squished Juice
 190 g Caster Sugar
 180 g Soft Unsalted Butter
 1 Lemon Zest - 1 scratch
 1 Vanilla Extract
 1 pinch Salt
 220 g Plain Flour
 1 tbsp Baking Powder
 3 qts Large Eggs
 1 tbsp Apricot Conserve
  g Doulsi Dulce De Leche



Preheat Oven to 180°C fan


Slice Nectarines into slices, make sure you remove the pit. Place in a bowl with the lemon juice and let stand until we are ready to use them.


Using an electric mixer at medium speed, mix butter and sugar until a creamy consistency is reached


Adds eggs one at a time while continuing to mix, then add salt, apricot conserve, vanilla and lemon zest.


Sift the flour with the baking powder before adding it to the egg mixture.


Add half of the nectarines that have been sitting in the lemon juice to your cake batter and mix gentle with a spatula.


Use a 24cm round tin covered in baking paper and sprinkled lightly with flour, this will prevent the batter from sticking to the tin. Pour the cake batter into the baking tin, level the mixture and place the remaining nectarines on top in any desired look or combination.


Bake for 50-60 minutes. You will know the cake is cooked through when you pierce it with a skewer in the centre and the skewer comes out clean and dry.


Leave it to cool down before dressing it with our Dulce de Leche.
