This chilled cake is a baklava-lover's dream come true. The familiar flavors of honey and pistachios are there, plus juicy peaches. Full sheets of graham crackers make clever layers between the fruit and tangy Greek yogurt filling.
Total:8 hr 50 min(includes standing and chilling times)
2 ripe medium peaches, cut into 1/4-inch slices (about 1 1/2 cups)
6 tablespoons honey, plus more for drizzling
1 1/2 cups plain 2 percent Greek yogurt
1/2 cup heavy cream
6 graham crackers (full sheets)
1/4 cup toasted pistachios, chopped
a 9-by-5-inch loaf pan that is at least 2 inches deep
Add the peach slices to a medium bowl. Drizzle 2 tablespoons of the honey over the peaches and toss until coated. Set aside for at least 30 minutes.
Beat the yogurt, heavy cream and remaining 4 tablespoons honey in a large bowl with an electric mixer on medium-high speed until stiff peaks form, about 2 minutes.
Line a 9-by-5-inch loaf pan that is at least 2 inches deep with plastic wrap, leaving about 2 inches of overhang on all sides. Spread a heaping 1/2 cup of the yogurt-cream mixture over the bottom of the pan. Evenly layer about 14 slices (about 1/2 cup) of the peaches over the cream. Top with 1 1/2 sheets of graham crackers. Break up the remaining 1/2 sheet into small pieces and use them to fill in the gaps. Repeat twice with the remaining yogurt-cream mixture, peaches and graham crackers (making sure to end with a layer of graham crackers on top). Cover the top of the pan with the overhanging plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least 8 hours and up to 12.
When ready to serve, unwrap the top of the loaf plan and invert it onto a flat plate or cutting board. Remove the plastic wrap, sprinkle with the pistachios and drizzle with honey.
