Recipe type: Baking
Cuisine: Yeasted sweet bread
Serves: 12 to 16 pieces
Dough Ingredients:
  • 400 g strong white bread flour
  • 1 tablespoon instant yeast
  • 3 tablespoons caster sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
  • 50g softened butter
  • 150 ml milk
  • 150 ml yoghurt
Streusel Topping:
  • 150 g plain flour
  • Half a teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 100 g demerara sugar
  • 100 g butter – diced
  • 100 g almond flakes
Peach Layer:
  • 6 peaches
  • 2 tablespoons caster sugar
You will need a greased and lined 22 cm x 30 cm (11″ x 12.5″) baking or roasting tin
How to make your sweet dough:
  1. Warm the milk and yoghurt for 1 minute in a microwave on full power. The liquid temperature needs to be tepid to warm so as to encourage the yeast to start working but too much heat will kill the yeast. Gently warm the liquid in a saucepan if you don’t have a microwave.
  2. Combine all the dough ingredients, in either the bowl of an electric mixer with a dough hook fitted or in a large mixing bowl.
  3. Mix on slow speed number 1 for approximately 1 to 2 min then on speed number 2 for 8 to 10 minutes.
  4. If mixing by hand stir the ingredients together until they form a ball and then need for 10 to 12 minutes.
  5. Check your dough is sufficiently smooth and elastic to pass the windowpane test.
  6. Place your dough in a large greased mixing bowl and cover.
  7. Leave to rest in a warm place for at least one and a half hours or until doubled in size.
  8. Roll out your dough to about 2 cm thick and place on your baking tin, cover with a clean damp tea towel while you prepare the topping.
  9. Preheat oven to 400°F / 200°C / Gas Mark 6.
How to make your streusel topping:
  1. Sift the flour and cinnamon into a large mixing bowl, add the demerara sugar and stir to combine.
  2. Add the diced butter and rub into the flour and sugar mix until it resembles pea size clumps. Add the almond flakes and stir.
Prepare your peaches:
  1. Slice each peach into 8 thick pieces (see photo)
Assemble your peach streusel traybake:
  1. Arrange your peach slices evenly on the top of the dough, you don’t have to arrange to neatly if you’re in a hurry and sprinkle with caster sugar.
  2. Then sprinkle with your streusel topping.
  3. Bake in the oven for about 30 to 35 minutes until the base is cooked and the streusel topping is crisp and golden.
Preparation time does not include dough resting time.
