This epic cake creation is from my newly released cookbook, The European Cake Cookbook. It’s the very first recipe in a comprehensive collection of 65 new cake recipes.

Let’s talk about all the incredible ingredients that go into my peach cake. Everything about this cake is uber light, airy and creamy! I start with a simple sponge cake with a bit of almond flour to make the layers even more delicate. Since sponge cakes are dry, it’s the perfect choice for adding a peach preserve filling. I simply combine peach preserves with a sweet wine (you can use white grape juice for a non-alcoholic version), then soak the layer with the resulting mixture. Next, I add a generous amount of simple whipped cream frosting between the sponge cake layers.
The main attraction of this torte is the zefir, or marshmallow. This Eastern European / Russian recipe yields a super light and fluffy marshmallow that simply melts in your mouth! It’s made with agar gelatin so it sets quickly and at room temperature. If you’ve never tried zefir before, you are in for a real treat! I usually have some extra marshmallow left over so I use it to make meringue kisses, which are great on their own as a sweet treat! Just pipe the meringue onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and sprinkle them with confectioner’s sugar right after piping. Allow the meringue to stand for 30 minutes, then enjoy! Store in airtight container.
