Soft peach and Almond Cake, so soft and fragrant that you'll love it. The peach pie is a classic recipe for breakfast, but this is enriched by many almonds into strips, that make it even more delicious. If you want to prepare, as I did, cake with fresh peaches, you have to use those to yellow skin, drier, that a cooked volts are preserved for longer. However, you can also prepare this cake in out-of-season using peaches that are in syrup or in preserves, after draining them well from the liquid in which they are stored.
The soft peach and almond cake is a creamy hearty dessert, because peaches inside tend to melt, while the crust is very crisp because sprinkled with brown sugar. I can't convince you with words that is the cake for you, you have to try it. If you like soft fruit cakes also try the mom's Apple Pie. The process is the same as the peach pie and you can look at it in the VIDEO RECIPE on my YouTube channel. You love peaches? Then try also to have a look at all my RECIPES DESSERT WITH PEACHES.

To prepare the soft cake of fresh peaches and almonds must first preheat the oven at 180 degrees. Butter a 24 cm cake tin with openable by hinge and sprinkle with the bread crumbs all over the surface, including the edges. Melt in a double boiler or in the microwave the butter, then let it cool.
In a large bowl whisk the egg along with an electric whisk eggs with sugar, vanilla and a pinch of salt: They will triple in volume and become very frothy, whitish and fluffy. Add the flour slowly continuing to mount with whips. Then stir the mixture melted butter, the packet of yeast dissolved in half a cup of milk and the almond flakes. The mixture should be soft.
Peel a peach, small dice it and add fruit to the mixture.
Peel the other peaches, slice into thick slices about half a centimeter. Pour the dough for the soft peach and almond cake into the pan and thread the peach slices perpendicularly on the surface of the cake, without leaving gaps, so that the cake is completely covered. Sprinkle the surface of the cake with brown sugar and some butter and bake for 40 minutes or so. Serve soft peach pie and almonds warm or at room temperature, after it has been dusted with icing sugar. This peach cake is delicious as it is, to be enjoyed at breakfast, but you can also serve it as a dessert in the accompanying vanilla ice cream or fishing.
MATCHING: The softness of the sweet wine of the Cinque Terre, in Liguria, does the Bill in this combination. We chose the "Sciacchetrà" of Cinque Terre Cellar in its version "reserve": smells like candied orange, dried figs, Dried apricots and hazelnut; the palate is complex, with the sweet sensation that binds well to that tasty. A good wine for meditation.
