Peach cheesecake cake


This Peach Cheesecake Cake is the perfect mix between a cheesecake,a cake and fresh fruit and makes a delightful summer treat.


As you know me i'm a sucker for all things cheesecake and i think i became a little obsessed with burnt cheesecake lately and this recipe pretty much proves it.🙄
Initially,i wanted to make a simple sponge cake packed with fresh seasonal fruit but i couldn't get out of my head the idea that an addition of cream cheese layer would work even better,so i tried it both ways.We loved them both but i had to choose the one we liked the most and it's pretty obvious who won.
While the simple version is more like a kind of cake you want to eat after a meal,the cheesecake one is that kind of cake you would want to snack on all day long. 
It has a moist sponge cake base,a creamy cheesecake layer and perfectly ripe peaches on top,a lovely dessert to eat all summer long.This cake was an experiment and turned out beautifully.It is so fun when experiments turned the way you want,isn't it?!
I used fresh seasonal peaches here but you can swap them for  blueberries,raspberries or whatever seasonal fruit you like.
The recipe is adaptable to almost any fruit,fresh,frozen or canned ones.Fresh fruit must be seasonal,sweet and ripe and if you choose stone fruit my advice is to remove the skin.
