Today I am sharing the recipe for this delicious and so easy, Fresh Peach and Pound Cake Sundaes. (Plus a big thanks to Breyers for sponsoring me on this post – a girl can never have too much ice cream!)
We went to the farmers market last week- they have so many gorgeous fruits and veggies right now, it’s hard to narrow down our choices and just pick a few items. Since the weather has gotten so hot over the last few weeks, it’s hard to stay out in the sun for long, but we did manage to come home with a good amount of peaches, tomatoes and zucchini. Yum!
We’ve actually had a lot of peach desserts this year. We went peach picking ourselves in May and my Dad had brought us a quarter bushel from Fredericksburg a few weeks back. (Or maybe it was a half bushel, I’m not sure, but it was a lot of peaches!)
One of my favorite ways to enjoy fresh summer fruit is with a little sugar and a few scoops of vanilla ice cream. Making our own ice cream is always a fun summer activity, but you do have plan ahead, (my ice cream freezer bowl has to be in the freezer for 24 hours.) I always keep a gallon or two of Breyers Natural Vanilla Ice ream in the freezer for emergencies.
We still have a few peaches that needed to be eaten so I decided to throw together a quick Peach sundae dessert recipe that I found on the Breyers website. You will love how easy this dessert is to throw together!
