Peach cake. Peel the peach, slice it, take out the seeds, add cinnamon and sugar, pour rose or marjoram water onto it, and if you have neither, wine will do. Now you know how to make stuffing for any coke, so I shall speak about the pot. Knead the dough with eggs, if you're making only one cake, five or six eggs will be enough, flatten the dough with a rolling pin, then you can make any kind of shape from this, like stars or birds. I can't speak about the shape of the cake pot, for I did not learn that, other nations' books tell you how to make animal shapes.
