Whoooo what a in Rome has been raining constantly since 5:30 am....But lots of flooding everywhere around Rome. Now seems to be calm..lets hope is going to last!!!
Today I want to give the recipe of this great last minute cake. Totally improvised.... That day I had nothing ready for breakfast so I decided to prepare a nice cake with the ingredients I could find in my fridge. I had this peaches there for weeks...and actually the first thought of the day was " I need to remember to throw those peaches in the bin"...but they were still good so I decided they were going to be the main ingredient of my cake. 
I prepare my breakfast in a few minutes and definitely my day started with a good way....
25 gr. soft butter
50 gr. flour
50 ml skimmed milk
lemon zest
50 gr. sugar + 50 gr. for caramel
1 egg
1 tsp baking powder

First of all prepare start to prepare the caramelized peaches by melting the sugar in a small saucepan. Toss the peaches in the melted sugar for just a few minutes and then distribute them in the cake tin (I used the silicon base mini cake tin from Pavoni Idea , 13.5 cm diameter)
Whisk  the egg with sugar until is completely dissolved. Add the melted butter and whisk until the mixture is smooth. Add the rest of the ingredients and fold them with care using a spatula.
Pour the mixture on top of the peaches and bake the cake in a warm oven at 180ยบ for 30 minutes.
