Ingredients

  • 4 slices pound cake
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 4 poached peaches
  • 1/2 cup poaching syrup
  • 4 scoops vanilla ice cream

Instructions

  1. Heat butter in large nonstick pan over medium heat until it bubbles up. Once the bubbles slow down, add the slices of pound cake.

  2. Brown the pound cake on both sides, flipping once. With a hot pan, this will take 30 seconds - 1 minute.

  3. Cut each slice toasted pound cake in half and set out the cut slices into four bowls.

  4. Take your poached peaches and cut them into slices. Distribute the slices to the bowls over the pound cake.

  5. Add a scoop of ice cream to each bowl. Drizzle over some of the reduced poaching syrup.
