Peach Rum Cake Recipe
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Recipe type: Dessert
Phase: 2
Serves: 4 servings
  • 2½ cups flour
  • 1 cup cashew milk
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup cane sugar
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 can peaches in juice
  • 2 tbsp flax seeds
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 cup spiced rum (optional of course...if you don't want it or are making for kids, just take it out)
  • *agave syrup or 1 additional cup rum to serve
  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine all of the ingredients (including the juices that are canned with the peaches), and mix well. Allow to rest for ten minutes.
  2. Lightly grease an 8 x 8 baking dish with olive oil and spread the batter evenly. Place the dish in a preheated 350° oven and bake for 45-50 minutes until golden brown.
  3. To serve your cake with rum: place the cake on a larger cake plate and pour the rum onto the bottom. Place the cake, whole or in pieces, on the plate and allow the rum to soak in for about ten minutes before serving.
  4. To serve with agave syrup: simply drizzle the agave over the surface of each piece of cake, (or you can use both).
  5. Enjoy!
