Peach crumb cake-fruit cake recipes

A very Happy new year to all the readers of Creative Saga. As I have mentioned in my previous post, I am going to spend a quality time blogging this year and please do expect more from Creative Saga. I know I am a bit late in wishing you all for the new year,but other priorities have kept me quite busy and I am waiting for things to come into a proper routine.
Last year saw only a few posts in Creative Saga,less of baking and more of healthy recipes and also a good focus on traditional Indian and Tamil recipes. The Traditional Tirunelveli halwa and baafle were the most popular recipes of 2009' in Creative Saga . My first food event called "cooking with greens" was a good success which recieved around 150 entries. I also spend a considerable amount of time working on the look of the blog and won appreciations from few of them too. I hope to continue the same work this year too and also host a few more events which has been going on in my mind for a long time. I also want to concenterate on food photography which I have already started last year.
So lets start this year with a cake as baking has always remained my passion.

peach crumb cakeMethod-
Beat the eggs and combine with sugar to form a fluffy mixture. Add the dry ingredients and mix well. Then add the milk followed by oil. Combine everything well to form a uniform batter. Fold in the peach pieces just before adding it to the prepered well greased loose bottomed cake tin.
Mix the ingredients of the crumb topping (except the peach) to form a coarse mixture(like that of the bread crumbs).
Add the crumb topping on the top of the cake batter uniformly. Place the peach pieces on top of it evenly.
Bake this in a preheated oven at 180c for 35 minutes or till a skewer comes out clean.
Cool and loosen the cake from the cake tin. Slice and serve.
