In its native language, Biskuit-Pfirsich-Schnitten, it is a refreshing, diet cake (ok, semi, you will immediately see why: P) and slightly alcoholic. :))))) Perfect for coffee. And good for breakfast (because it’s 5 o’clock somewhere in the world anyway :D).
Well, to better understand, this cake has no added sugar, but it is disastrously sweet. 🙂 Because all 5 main ingredients are sweet or have sugar in them. This is about the fact that we all consume too much sugar and that we need to learn to read labels and use the math from the secondary school. (What do say there pinkcat, math ??? :D)
That being said, let me tell you what I put in it, and then see how it can be changed. 🙂
Ingredients: a packet of biscuits (I used the ones from Lidl), a large fruit-peach yogurt (I used Jogobella, because it was on sale), 250g of sweetened Meggle cream (half a box), a sachet of gelatin and 6 hard peaches/ nectarines or a large compote, some orange juice and Amaretto.
2 rows of biscuits/ cream/ fruit filled my super dubious tray. If you have a tray that you use for tiramisu, that’s fine; if not, improvise (you can make it directly in portions, in a glass). 🙂
Combine the Amaretto with the juice in a box, if you drop more liqueur, don’t get behind the wheel in any form!!! :)))))) If you want no alcohol, it’s ok. Instead of the orange juice you can use the juice from a peach compote, if you prefer fruit from the compote instead of fresh ones.
Prepare the fruits: wash and cut them into very thin slices. The ones in the compote go thicker. If you want to cut them into cubes, go ahead, but keep some slices for decoration.
Cream: in a bowl, beat the cream well with the mixer or by hand; when it is hard, add the fruit yoghurt and the gelatin sachet soaked in a little water or fruit juice/ compote (according to the instructions on the sachet).
Assembly: pass the biscuits through the juice and place them in the tray, put half of the cream on top of them, arrange a layer of fruit, repeat with the second layer of biscuits, the other half of the cream and the rest of the fruit.
If you want to minimize the amount of sugar, you can use regular yogurt, but fatter or unsweetened cream – just play with the amounts and taste and add a tablespoon of honey if you think is necessary. 🙂
The girl from whom I took the recipe combined cream with whipped cream, whipped cream hardener and honey.
Refrigerate the cake for at least an hour, preferably overnight, after which you can eat it. With black coffee or cappuccino. 🙂
If you can’t find peaches or nectarines, you can use compote. Or mango. Or any other fruit (see that it is a rhyming yogurt). :))))
