The name of this cake literally represents the cake itself. We made a very American peach cake to go along with a very Brazilian filling and glaze. Both filling and glaze are sweet staples of a lot of Brazilian desserts: condensed milk and coconut. This cake is a great option for the warm weather because it has a mix of flavors and it needs to be served cold!! Enjoy it! —BrazilianFlairintheUSA

1 1/2 cups
2 1/2 cups
can sweetened condensed milk
can coconut milk
can creme de leite
toasted coconut flakes
Cream butter and sugar and add egg.

Pour into 2 greased and floured cakes rounds.

For the filling
Cook the condensed milk, egg yolks (only) and coconut milk, stirring slowly to combine with the yolks
When it starts to simmer, mix the corn starch dissolved with 3/4 c. of water and add it to the cream filling.
It is going to get thick very fast.
The thickness of the filling is up to you.
Make the glaze when everything is done. You can’t leave this for a long time out of the refrigerator because it will separate.
Whisk the egg whites in a mixing bowl until semi stiff.
Add sugar slowly and then the creme de leite (drain the liquid in the can).
Continue whisking until combined and stiff peaks form.
Place the first layer of cake on a plate and spread the filling liberally on the cake.
Place the second cake layer on top.
Spread glaze over the top and sides of the cake, the toasted coconut and the fresh peaches on top.
3 fresh peacesh for decoration, peeled and cut into slices.
