Atami (Peaches)

Country: Georgia
Course: Dessert
Makes: 6 servings


  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/8 tsp almond extract
  • 1 1/2 cups white flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • Pinch salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 egg whites
  • Peach jam
  • 6 tbsp white grape juice
  • 2 tbsp of sugar
  • Red sugar sprinkles
  1. Heat your oven to 350 degrees. Grease 12 custard cups.
  2. Cream the butter and sugar together until fluffy.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix the flour with the baking powder and salt. Now add the flour blend to the butter, alternating with the milk and mixing well.
  4. In another bowl beat the egg whites, then fold gently into the batter.
  5. Pour about 1/4 cup of the batter into each greased cup and then bake for 20 to 22 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  6. Immediately turn your cakes out onto a wire rack. Trim each cake down with a knife so it has a flat surface.
  7. Spread a thin layer of peach jam on the flat surface of each cake, and press two of the cakes together, peach side facing.
  8. Make a syrup by putting the grape juice and sugar in a small pan and simmering for five minutes or until thickened. Brush the syrup over each cake, then sprinkle with red sugar crystals.
