Recipe by Mimi Bobeck
If was a loser who feels like they just cannot bake, like all those Rachael Ray fans. This was a recipe that was served at my friend in Germany's birthday. It's so good! You GOTTA try this! This will be your new favourite cake! Re: the picture of this recipe I submitted, I am very sorry that the only photo I have the cake is 1/2 eaten. We had just taken it out of the oven, and I went to get my friend's camera, (which only took 2 minutes) and that's what was left. There was a line of people trying to get a 2nd helping after they inhaled their first piece, and I had to ask them to "please wait - I really need to get a picture before it's all gone". So, that's what happened. Sorry about that guys. It really looked so beautiful BEFORE people began to inhale it.
- 4 eggs
- 2 cups sugar (If possible Try to use Vanilla Sugar, it's sold in the baking aisle in yellow envelopes under the 'D)
- 3 cups flour
- 1 cup oil (Sunflower is best. Any "light oil" like vegetable oil. Please don't use any of the "olive" oils beca)
- orange, flavour
- 1 1⁄2 cups fanta orange soda
- 2 teaspoons baking soda
- 1 teaspoon vanilla (you don't need this if you used vanilla sugar, but if you REALLY like vanilla a lot, go ahead and ad)
- 1 (15 ounce) cansliced peaches, drained
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1 cup whipped cream (That Vanilla Sugar I told you about earlier, right next to it in a blue envelope is something called)
- 1⁄3 cup sifted powdered sugar
Directions See How It's Made
- For the cake: mix together the eggs, sugar, vanilla and oil. Add flour and then Fanta and mix well. At the end, mix in the baking soda then turn immediately into an ungreased 9 X 13 inch pan. Bake at 350°F for 30-45 minutes until golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Let cool.
- For icing: Whip cream until stiff and then fold in the soured cream and powdered sugar and "Whip it"/"Sahnesteif". Put peaches on the cake and then top with the icing. Serve chilled.
- Note: People in the United States should NOT be looking for "Sahnesteif", they should be looking for "Whip it". If you're in a German speaking country - you should be looking for "Sahnesteif" not "Whip it". No matter if you are in America or Europe - it's in the baking aisle and "Whip it"/"Sahnesteif" is ALWAYS in a blue envelope right next to the yellow envelopes of Vanilla Sugar. If your store doesn't sell it - you can always buy it off the internet.
