Let it cool! Divide the dough it in 2 layers.


Prepare the caramel:

Mix the sugar with the water and leave it at slow fire to caramelize.

When golden brown and while still on fire, add the butter and incorporate. Add the beaten fresh cream and incorporate.

Only now remove from fire and let it cool.

Prepare the caramel filling:

Beat the egg yolks with the sugar for 3-4 minutes or until they double the volume.

Add the flour and mix slowly.


Warm the milk.

Slowly incorporate the beaten egg yolks into the milk.


Put it at slow fire and mix from time to time until thick like a pudding. Let it cool! Hydrate the gelatin sheets. While still warm add the gelatin sheets.



When cooled add the caramel in the egg yolks/ milk filling and mix until well incorporated.

Beat the fresh cream and incorporate it in the filling.


Prepare the peach filling:

Let the syrup drain from canned peaches.

Put the gelatin sheets in cold water. Mash the peaches and put them on fire for a few moments. Remove from fire and add the gelatin sheets while the composition is still warm and mix.

Beat the fresh cream with the sugar. Mix it with the mashed peaches.


Prepare the peach layer:

Let the syrup drain from canned peaches.

Mash the peaches and heat them up. Hydrate the gelatin sheets and mix them in the peach composition.

Spread the mixture on a plastic sheet on a plate and keep it in the fridge until thickens.


Assembling the cake:

On a plate, in a round dettachable circle, add one layer of dough, then the peach filling, then the peach layer. Above the peach layer add the caramel filling and on top add the second layer of dough.





Cover the cake with the cream (beat the fresh cream with the sugar) and some walnuts. You can make a rose from half of a peach to look nicer ;).


Enjoy!
