DIRECTIONS

  • 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.
