1 large basic sponge cake (7")
2 1/4 to 3 cups vanilla ice-cream
1 small can peaches (450 grams)
3 egg whites
6 tbsp powdered sugar

  1. Chill the ice - cream thoroughly in a freezer or in the freezer compartment of a refrigerator.
  2. Chop the peaches. Keep aside a little of the syrup.

  4. Cover the cake with the fruit.
