Who’s feeling peachy today? I know I am! I just indulged in a supremely delicious Pound Cake & Peaches sundae that I made all by myself. Well, with help from Breyers and Chef Antonia Lofaso. Still, I pulled it off myself, which is something to be pretty proud of, don’t you think? Here’s a secret: the recipe is insanely easy, yet it really looks makes you look like you’re a super chef or something!
Here’s another secret: Breyers now sources milk and cream from cows not treated with artificial growth hormones*. They’re committed to using high quality ingredients. Breyer’s Natural Vanilla ice cream, for example, is made with fresh cream, sugar, milk and sustainably farmed vanilla beans. I’m so relieved, because I love my ice-cream, and I definitely prefer when it’s made with simple ingredients! I’m also relieved because Jacob is a huge Breyers Natural Vanilla ice cream fan, so now I can feel even more comfortable making him a cone or shake. He’s always been a vanilla type of kid. Me? I like stuff with ice-cream and ice-cream with stuff. Cakes, pies, brownies- you know, the stuff you’re supposed to put ice-cream on. Breyers Natural Vanilla ice cream is just right as a base for so many delicious ice-cream treats. It is, after all, American’s No. 1 vanilla ice-cream! I never tried it with pound cake and peaches though. What a fun and tasty experience! Let’s check out the recipe!
Pound Cake & 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.
The instructions and ingredients came directly from the Breyers’ website. I don’t actually know what “macerated” means in culinary terms. They’re good, that’s all I know! I didn’t want you to think I suddenly graduated from culinary school! You can also find all the nutritional information for these yummy pound cake and peaches sundaes, plus four more amazing recipes from Chef Antonia Lofaso. I highly recommend checking out Breyers on Pinterest for even more inspiration!
The hardest part of the whole recipe was dicing the peaches. I kind of “triangled” the peaches instead. Or maybe “oblonged” them. Hey, if chefs can make up words like “deconstructed ravioli” (yeah, I watch Food Network!),” I can make up new words for how you cut things!
So how did it taste? Absolutely spectacular! I never would have thought of mixing basil in with the peaches. I also never would have thought to toast the pound cake. It gives it such a nice texture. Plus the feeling of slightly warm cake and fresh cold vanilla ice-cream, mixed with the soft peaches is just such a culinary experience. You’ll feel like you’re eating dessert at a 5-star restaurant. If no one sees you make it, they’ll think you worked super hard to put it together.
The vanilla in all Breyers ice-cream is real, not imitation. Plus it’s sourced from sustainably farmed, Rainforest Alliance Certified ™ vanilla beans, which makes me feel more responsible about enjoying it. You’ll find Breyers products in your grocery store nationwide. It retails for a suggested price of $3.99-$5.99.

When I think of poundcake desserts, I usually associate it with strawberries. But these peaches look so tasty. Also, I recently had peaches with mint and it was very refreshing. I think basil would give it a similar taste.
The entire combinations sounds amazing. I never thought to include basil in any of my ice cream. It will be a hit!
I have never had a dessert made out of peaches before. It’s not a fruit I typically think of when it comes to dessert, but I think I will try this sundae idea.
I have had toasted pound cake-it is delicious. I would probably go with a different flavor ice cream (peach maybe if I used peaches) or coffee if I used a compote.
That looks so yummy! I love peaches and anything with peaches on it is definitely a winner for me. Need to try this.
Now that looks so awesome and simple! I love peaches with ice cream! Yum! New family dessert!
This dessert is calling me! I love peaches, looks like it all goes great together too!
Yum! That looks so good. We definitely need to remember to add fruit to our ice cream. I tend to just eat it out of the container 🙂
there is nothing like peaches and vanilla ice cream! yum!
Love Vanilla Ice Cream and Breyers has always been near the top of our list. It does taste perfect with peaches. Some times we grill the peaches and put some honey and then add the ice cream, Yum!
This looks and sounds so good. I love peaches and ice cream so this would make a perfect dessert this week. The temps are suppose to be in the 80’s here. Thanks for sharing.
This looks like an amazing dessert for summer time! I never thought to try pound cake like this.
My daughter loves peaches. This would be a great surprise treat to make for her. So yummy!
I love peaches! This looks like a great dessert. I’ve never combined basil with peaches before. I am very curious what the flavor is like.
Oh man, Bryer’s ice cream is so delicious on it’s own, but you just sent it over the top! I can’t wait to try this!
Omg now this looks all sorts of deliciousness!!! Totally going to be giving this a try! Too yummy not too!
Pound cake is one of my all time favorites, absolute classic! My mother handed down her recipe but it’s never quite as good as hers 😉 Thank you for sharing this amazing recipe idea with us! 🙂
Yum. I don’t know why I’ve never thought to add peaches with pound cake. I’m sure it’s absolutely delicious.
It really is! I never thought to add peaches to pound cake with lemon and basil, but there it was. So delicious!
What a wonderful—easy–dessert that looks beautiful. Toasted pond cake slices! Toasted!
This looks so yummy and easy to make!
