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.
