  • 400g can peach slices
  • 60g butter, softened
  • 115g caster sugar
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 pot Ski Sensations Peaches & Cream dessert
  • 115g self-raising flour
  • For the icing:
  • 80g butter, softened
  • 250g Icing sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Ski Sensations Peaches & Cream dessert
  • Splash of milk


1 Preheat the oven to 180c. Line a 12-hole muffin tin with paper cases.

2 Drain the peaches – reserving the juice – and set 12 small slices to one side. Chop the rest of the peaches into small chunks.

3 Put the butter and sugar into a bowl and beat until light and fluffy. Then gradually beat in the eggs.

4 Fold in the flour (to keep all the air you beat in earlier). Then fold in the Ski Sensations dessert until totally incorporated into the mix.

5 Fold in the chopped peaches and 1 tablespoon of the reserved juice

6 Spoon the mixture evenly into the paper cases and bake in the oven for 25 minutes or until golden brown.

7 Leave to cool in the tin for 10 minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

8 Meanwhile, make the icing by mixing the butter and icing sugar together until smooth. Stir in the Ski Sensations dessert and then if needed, add a splash of milk to get a consistency like whipped cream. If you can, use an electric whisk to beat until light and fluffy.

9 When the cakes are completely cool, add the icing – just by spreading on or using a piping bag – and top off with one of the reserved slices of peach.
