Peach Nougat Spelt Cake

Labels: { , , }

A slightly dense, moist butter cake with ripe, fresh, and juicy peaches and rich, gooey nougat atop makes a truly succulent late-summer delight with a glass of sparkling wine.

  1. Peel and halve the peaches. Gently fan out the top of halves whilst still keeping them all together. Line a 30x.33cm baking tray with paper. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F. Place the nougat in a bowl set over a saucepan of simmering water. Stir until it is melted and smooth.
  2. Whisk the spelt flour and baking powder in a mixing bowl. Add in sugar, eggs, butter and milk. Beat briefly with a hand mixer on slow speed, then increase the speed to high and beat for 2 minutes until a smooth dough forms.
  3. Press the dough evenly onto the prepared tray. Arrange the peach halves, fanned-out side up, in 4 lines, setting them 1 inch apart and pressing each gently into the dough. Spoon the melted nougat to fill the gaps between lines.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes. Strain the raspberry jam through a fine sieve into a bowl. Remove the cake and cool on the wire rack. Brush the peach halves with the jam while it’s still warm, and scatter the chopped pistachio on the nougat. Slice the cake and serve.

Thank you, kitchen flavours and alwayswinner786, for passing the awards to me.

Jess @ Bakericious 29/8/10 14:06

Angie, the cake looks so so eye-catching! May I know what is Spelt #630 flour? Thanks in advance.

Faith 29/8/10 14:15

Oh wow, I bet the nougat is amazing on this cake! It's a very pretty cake too, I love the peaches on top!

Jo 29/8/10 14:24

Honey Bee Sweets 29/8/10 14:25

It must taste heavenly! Juicy, buttery, nutty and sweet... What more yummies can we ask for? Thanks for this lovely recipe. ;)

Angie's Recipes 29/8/10 14:30

Jess: Spelt is similar to wheat, but somewhat nuttier and slightly sweeter flavor than whole wheat flour. Spelt contains more protein than wheat, and the protein in spelt is easier to digest. In Germany, flour is graded by the content of mineral content (or ash; very different from the states) hence the value of #630 would be 63%, which is equivalent to AP flour.
Thanks, guys, for stopping by!

Xiaolu @ 6 Bittersweets 29/8/10 18:30

maameemoomoo 30/8/10 16:31

This looks like my kinda cake, Angie ;)

However, apart from peaches (it's very expensive here!) do u think apples will do? If so, do u think i need any other 'adjustments'?


Mary 30/8/10 16:31

Congratulations on your award. It is well deserved. I especially admire this cake. It is not easy to work with spelt but you did a wonderful job. I hope you are having a great day. Blessings...Mary

Sherie: Yes, apples are perfectly fine for the cake....quarter the apples, one for each line, so you probably just need 4 for the recipe. Or use the canned peaches or apricots instead.

[Reply] 30/8/10 17:26

Awesome Cake...very tempting!! feel lika having a bite..:)

It is so gorgeous! And sounds incredibly delicious with the nougat and peach topping!

OysterCulture 31/8/10 05:13

I am so intrigued by this cake, I've not used much spelt, and certainly never thought to pair it with nougat - I need to change that immediately.

Debbi Does Dinner Healthy 31/8/10 05:31

This looks gorgeous! I would have no idea where to find nougat though? LOVE the spelt flour in it! Thanks!

baby crib 31/8/10 08:36

I still can't believe how this Peach Nougat Spelt Cake is made. I wish I can make a home made version of this delicious cake. I know that kids will enjoy eating this very yummy cake. Thank you for sharing this.

Heavenly Housewife 31/8/10 12:14

Put this on a counter and I know of a certain housewife who would probably gobble it all up. It looks simply beautiful!

Terrianne, Call me Ree 31/8/10 20:11

You make the most gorgeous food! This looks delicious. =)

Thella @ I Love. Therefore, I Cook. 1/9/10 02:04

this looks really special. nougats have this way of reminding me of my childhood (i've always loved milk nougats as a kid) and it's a brilliant idea being paired with peaches for your dessert :)


Wow-I've never thought to try spelt in cake!!! What a great idea! This looks fantastic!

Emily 1/9/10 02:57

I'd never heard of spelt before - I saw your explanation in the comments to someone else. Very interesting! And beautiful cakes, they're almost too pretty to eat!

marla {family fresh cooking} 1/9/10 05:21

Such a great combo of ingredients. The use of spelt flour is interesting. I love experimenting with different flours. The nougat topping is sinful & perfect.

Kim (Liv Life) 1/9/10 06:40

Gorgeous pictures!! Spelt has become one of my favorite flours... Nicely done!! Congrats on the Top 9!!

Stella 1/9/10 22:42

Wow, Angie! I remember the other day I saw something that I though was like the best thing you ever posted, but now I have to take that back (smile). This nougat cake is now the best thing for sure;) Ooh, and your peach is so esthetically beautiful. I like that...

grace 2/9/10 08:58

what an attractive and unique cake! i'm unfamiliar with baking with spelt, and nougat is new (ha!) to me too, but come on--how could this not be good? i love the look of the cooked peaches too--so wrinkly and inviting. :)

denise @ quickies on the dinner table 2/9/10 09:34

Wow! I think this is fancy and beautiful enough to serve as dessert at a garden wedding! Scrumptious, and so pretty too!!

natural selection 3/9/10 15:48

You are spot on! perfect with a Cava or Prosecco! presentation is marvelous! and I can taste how the nuts perfectly compliment the peaches. Did you place the peaches on top in halves then "score" them? just curious..

Just beautiful Angie

Rick 3/9/10 17:20

This looks amazing! To die for! Or a reason to live.

Janet@Gourmet Traveller 88 4/9/10 20:20

Hi Angie, I love peaches, your cake looks so divine. Whatsmore peach cake with champagne are wonderful matches.

Cristina @ Teenie Cakes 6/9/10 08:26

Yum! What a gorgeous looking cake and luv that image of the stacked slices. Peaches and chopped pistachios...dangerous combination for me. I'd probably eat the whole cake to myself. Nicely done, Angie!

Kaitlin 9/9/10 04:34

What a beautiful cake! This should be on the cover of a magazine!

dining table 1/4/11 04:50

This is quite tempting. It might ruin my diet but I think this is worth a try.
