There is something to be said about an ice cream sundae. Delicious fudge, nuts, whipped topping and other goodies make sundaes so divine that they are hard to resist. I have always been a chocolate fudge girl, that is, up until recently. Something happened when I entered my 30’s. I’ve always considered myself to have a refined palate, but when it came to my desserts I was basic. Well, not anymore! Lately, I have been whipping up yummy peach cobblers, chess cake and scrumptious oatmeal cookies. No chocolate in sight! For some reason, I keep going back to the fresh peaches. I can’t seem to get enough of them! Especially mixed with a little bit of sugar and lemon juice with my Breyers Natural Vanilla ice cream!
Pound Cake and Peaches Sundae Recipe
- 2 fresh peaches, diced
- 2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
- 1 Tbsp. granulated sugar
- 2 tsp. thinly sliced fresh basil leaves
- 4 (1/4-inch thick) pound cake slices
- 1 cup Breyers® Natural Vanilla Ice Cream
- Mix peaches, lemon juice, sugar and basil in a small bowl.
- To make each sundae, place a slice of toasted pound cake on a plate, then top with a 1/4 cup scoop of Breyers® Natural Vanilla Ice Cream and cover generously with macerated peaches.
This pound cake and peaches sundaes recipe was found on the Breyer’s Ice Cream site, created originally by Chef Antonia Lofaso. It caught my eye because of the peaches, of course. As I read through the ingredients list I realized that I almost always have basil on hand but I have never thought to include it in a dessert recipe. What a genius idea! The basil in this recipe blends incredibly well with the sweet peaches and zesty lemon juice. The toasty crunch to the pound cake adds a completely new element and it could not make my heart any happier. Let’s just say that my diet got blown with this recipe! The Breyers Natural Vanilla ice cream makes this recipe whole. Breyers is committed to using high quality ingredients. Breyers Natural Vanilla is made with fresh cream, sugar and milk, and sustainably farmed vanilla beans. It is rich, adding a fresh and creamy taste to the dessert.
