Peaches and Cream Pound Cake Sundae

July 2, 2015

Yesterday, we shared Antonia Lofaso's recipe for an easy stars and stripes sundae for the 4th of July. This peaches and cream pound cake sundae is perfect for summer because it makes the most of this seasonal fruit.  Sweet and juicy summer peaches are soaked in lemon juice, sugar and basil.  If you are making this strictly for adults, feel free to add a splash of amaretto or peach liqueur.  The fruit is then spooned over a warm piece of buttery pound cake with rich vanilla ice cream.
