Chasing Pavements Fresh Peach Cake

Today Suzy passed me a new recipe, which I modified a little. Instead of using nectarines which she used, I used peaches. I also came up with a fun little name – “Chasing Pavements Fresh Peach Cake” because the cake’s surface remined me of Adele’s “Chasing Pavements” song (and also because it looked like cracked pavements.) Ok, laugh but don’t laugh that hard!

1) 200g softened butter
