Peaches & Cream Prosecco Cake

Directions

  1. For cake: Allow eggs to stand at room temperature 30 minutes. Meanwhile, grease and flour three 8 1 1/2-inch round baking pans. In a bowl combine flour, baking powder, and salt; set aside.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In an extra-large bowl beat eggs with a mixer on high 5 minutes or until thickened and light. Beat on medium an additional 5 minutes while gradually adding sugar, 1/4 cup at a time. (Batter will be light and fluffy.) Beat in flour mixture on medium-low until just combined.
  3. In a small saucepan heat and stir milk and butter until butter melts. Add to batter, beating until combined; beat in almond extract. Divide batter among prepared pans.
  4. Bake 25 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted near centers comes out clean. Transfer pans to a wire rack; cool 10 minutes. Remove cakes from pans; cool completely on wire racks over a shallow pan or tray. Using a long-tine meat fork, poke cakes all over. Slowly pour Prosecco over cakes. Wrap in plastic wrap; chill 2 to 24 hours.
  5. For fresh peach filling: In a large bowl combine peaches, Prosecco, and sugar; stir well. Let stand, covered, 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Using a potato masher or fork, mash into a coarse mixture.
  6. For whipped cream frosting: In an extra-large bowl beat heavy cream, sour cream, sugar, and vanilla with mixer on medium until stiff peaks form; set aside.
  7. Place one cake layer on a serving plate. Spread with half the fresh peach filling. Top with second cake layer; spread with remaining peach filling. Top with third cake layer. Spread top and sides with frosting. To serve, top with sliced peaches and mint leaves.

I had to transport this so made it as a trifle instead of a cake. I cubed 2 of the 3 8-inch round layers for the trifle. The cake is tender, moist, and a bit fragile-- I highly recommend using parchment liners as my cake stuck a bit despite greasing/flouring my high quality non-stick pans. The cake maintained a pleasant texture after infusing the prosecco.
4 peaches was not quite enough to make the filling thick enough-- I needed 2.5 cups coarsely chopped peaches.
The whipped cream was marvelous and held up beautifully even the next day--- this will be my go-to whipped cream frosting from now on.
Everyone loved this. TBH I wasn't that wild about the prosecco flavor. Next time I may use amaretto or something citrusy. But there will definitely be a next time!!

I love this recipe! I made cupcakes instead of cake and they were a hit.
I also added 4 oz cream cheese to the frosting to make it thicker.

Looks and sounds delicious, but I am confused by the pan size. It reads "three 8 1 1/2 inch pans". What does that mean? Three 8 1/2" pans, three 8" pans that are 1 1/2" tall? Please solve this mystery for me!

I found this recipe while flipping through your magazine at the car repair shop and prevailed upon the customer service woman to make me a copy. I am so glad I did. This may well be my favorite cake of all time. Light, delicious, and decadent, all at the same time. Love the almond flavor.

I bake a lot and this is one of the best cakes I've ever made or eaten. I made it for a dinner party at a friend's and everyone raved about it. Stays moist for a couple days. And the leftover, if there is any, tastes great for breakfast.
