Pound cake and peaches sundaes
This post brought to you by Breyers. The content and opinions expressed below are that of Divine Lifestyle.
I love dessert. I really do. So does my husband and my kids. We love to plan a fun dessert each week that we can all make together. It very often involves Breyers.
One of my favorite ice creams is the Breyers Natural Vanilla. With each bite I can taste all of the ingredients and they go so well together. It tastes refreshing and bold with vanilla flavoring. I really like it. My husband loves the creaminess.
This week we were making pound cake and peaches sundaes which of course, is topped off with Breyers Natural Vanilla. We split it as a family and it was pretty much dueling spoons until it was gone. In fact, we had to make another. This kids loved this recipe.
What is really great about Breyers is that it is just as good on its own as it is paired with pretty much anything in the dessert realm. I love just a scoop of vanilla in a coffee mug while I read a book. We made fresh chocolate chip cookie sandwiches early this summer with Breyers Natural Vanilla.
Breyers Natural Vanilla uses high quality ingredients: fresh cream, sugar and milk along with sustainably farmed vanilla beans.
Did you know that Breyers Natural Vanilla is America’s No. 1 vanilla ice cream? I am not surprised. As a parent, I love that my kids ask for Breyers by name.
Most of all I am glad to see that Breyers now sources milk and cream from cows not treated with artificial growth hormones*. In addition all Breyers vanilla is real and from sustainably farmed, Rainforest Alliance Certified™ vanilla beans.
*Suppliers of other ingredients such as cookies, candies & sauces may not be able to make this pledge. The FDA states that no significant difference has been shown between dairy derived from rBST-treated and non-rBST-treated cows.
POUND CAKE AND PEACHES SUNDAES
We made the pound cake and peaches sundaes and I have to tell you that the kids gobbled it right up. So did the adults. We found fresh Georgia peaches that we perfectly ripe and added pound cake then topped it with Breyers Natural Vanilla ice cream (full recipe here).
Chef Antonia Lofaso's Pound Cake & Peaches Sundae
- 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.
This has been one of our favorite desserts of the summer so far. We cannot wait to make it again. We plan to make pound cake bites next time with peach chutney as a possible twist.
You should indulge in Breyers ice cream to make your next dessert. You all just might fall in love.
