For The Weekend: Almond Peach Pastry Cake

February 23, 2013


Erin Schrader

Just dropping in to share something that looks absolutely delicious to make for the weekend…
my mouth is salivating just looking at it.
Peaches + Cake.
Hello perfection.

Every other weekend I will be sharing a recipe with you from one of my favorite bloggers, Amanda from Marshalls Abroad. Amanda documents her life beautifully through her blog and also has a passion for creating incredible dishes for you and I to enjoy (which in return makes us 10 pounds heavier. minor details). I hope you enjoy her contributions as much as I do! Make sure to go visit Amanda on her own space to receive tons of other fabulous recipes, breath taking photos, and a great voice in this blogging world.

If you’re ever looking for an easy, delicious, pretty, light & fluffy dessert, I hope you’ll try this! I’ve been wanting to teach myself how to make pastries, but somehow this is what I came up with instead… I got the juiciest peaches at the farmer’s market and those married perfectly to the fluffy whipped cream and the gooey honey almonds. Heaven.

Almond Peach Pastry Cake:
{roughly serves 6}
 2 Peaches {or whatever fruit is seasonally sweet in your area}
1 Cup Sliced Raw Almonds
1 Cup Raw Walnuts
1 Tablespoon Almond Extract
2 Cups Heavy Whipping Cream
1 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract
2 Tablespoons Sugar
I box of frozen pastry dough

For the Almond filling: Combine the sliced raw almonds, raw walnuts, almond extract, & a good squeeze of honey in a food processor or blender until the nuts are in small pieces and sticking together with the honey. Taste; add more honey to your liking for sweetness and consistency.

For the Whip Cream: Beat the heavy whipping cream, vanilla extract, & sugar on high until stiff peaks form.

Using a bowl & knife, cut the pastry dough into 3 circles; bake according to package. Once they have cooled, spread 1/3 of the honey almond mixture on the first pastry layer. Next spread 1/3 of the whipped cream. Add another pastry layer, continue with the honey almond & whipped cream. Spread the remaining whipped cream on the last pastry layer, the remaining nuts in the middle and peach {or your seasonal fruit} slices around the edges.

Peach slices in each layer would also be delicious. Enjoy!
