I personally love cakes with real fruit on or inside them, for this recipe i will be showing you how to make a delicious cake with cream and peaches, but don't be affraid to decorate it with any other fruits you like.
The structure of the cake is really soft with a mild creamy taste and you taste the fruit right away, if i must describe the cake with one word i'd be "fresh".
- 2 cake layers you can buy in the shop (pref. white ones)
- 1 can of peach slices in juice (you will only need the juice from this product)
- 5 peaches
- 300-400 ml of cream (sweet pastery cream, not > the cooking cream/creme fraiche)
- Butter 200 gram (0,44 pound)
- Gelatin 1 small pack
- Any other fruit to your taste (like strawberries, kiwi etc)
- Powdered Sugar
First mix the cream good for about 2-3 minutes with the mixer. In a seperate bowl mix the butter with 2 spoons of powdered suger. After that continue mixing the cream again while slowly adding the sugary butter into the mix.
Peel the peaches and remove the pit, cut the peaches into thin equal pieces (moon shapes is good). Open the can of peaches and throw out the peaches but keep the sirup. Split the sirup into 2 glasses. In one of those glasses you add the gelatin and give it a good mix with a tea spoon, after that you leave this glass to rest.
Now place the first cake layer into the cake form. Use 1/2 the glass of sirup (the one without the gelatin) and slowly sip it all over the layer so it gets a bit soaky.
Smear the upper side of the same cake layer with cream.
Place pieces of peach randomly on that layer upon the cream.
Place the second layer and use the 1/2 glass of sirup to soak it up like you did on the first layer. Smear the whole layer with cream and place the rest of the fruit like you want it all decorated. When you have done that place the cake as it is in the refridgiator for 20-30 minutes.
The second glass of sirup (with the gelatin in it) will become 1 big jello by now. You need to warm this up a bit so it becomes liquid.
Take the cake out and bring in a thin layer of liquid gelatin on it with a brush, this will give it a nice glaze and will keep the decorations in place.
Enjoy you delicious peach cake.
