Ingredients

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

Instructions

  • Heat butter in large nonstick pan over medium heat until it bubbles up. Once the bubbles slow down, add the slices of pound cake.
  • Brown the pound cake on both sides, flipping once. With a hot pan, this will take 30 seconds - 1 minute.
  • Cut each slice toasted pound cake in half and set out the cut slices into four bowls.
  • Take your poached peaches and cut them into slices. Distribute the slices to the bowls over the pound cake.
  • Add a scoop of ice cream to each bowl. Drizzle over some of the reduced poaching syrup.

Notes

  • Ice Cream: I used vanilla bean ice cream. Other great ice cream choices would be ginger, salted caramel, honey or peach.
  • Recipes: I created this recipe to highlight my Orange Pound Cake and my Honey Poached Peaches.
  • Shortcut: While I would recommend using freshly poached fruit, you can switch to a purchased pound cake.
