Unlike the name suggests, there are no real peaches in this cake - just a pretty peachy swirl of colour inside and a really light and fluffy texture.
1/2 c butter
1 cup sugar
3 egg whites
1.5 cups self raising flour
1.5 teaspoon cornflour
1/2 cup milk
cochineal (scarlet food colouring)
Cream butter & sugar until white and fluffy, add stiffly beaten egg whites and then remaining ingredients. Divide mixture into two bowls - leave one plain and add a small dash of cochineal to the other. Alternate spoonfuls of the coloured and plain cake mix into the cake tin.
Bake in a moderate oven (180 degrees) until cooked through nicely. Ice once cool and enjoy.
