step-by-step directions
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour one 9 x 13 cake pan.
  • For the Milk: Combine the whole milk, condensed milk and evaporated milk together. Set aside.
  • For the Cake: In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt. In the bowl of a mixer, beat together the butter, lime zest and the 1 cup of sugar until fluffy, about 4 minutes.
  • Add the eggs one at a time and the almond extract. Beat well. Add the flour to the mixture in 3 batches, just until combined. Do not over mix. Pour the batter into the prepared pan.
  • Bake for 30 minutes, or until a cake tester inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Remove from the oven. 
  • Pierce the cake several times with a skewer or fork. Pour the milk over the cake and let sit until completely cooled, about 20 minutes. Place in the refrigerator until cold, about 2 hours.
  • For the Topping: Place the cream in the bowl of a mixer with whisk, gradually adding in the sugar and vanilla. Whip until soft peaks form, about 5 minutes.
  • Cut the cake and top with sliced peaches. Dollop with whipped cream and sprinkle with toasted almonds.
