About the recipe

I had just received a big batch of homegrown peaches and I wanted to make a lazy dessert that’s easy with no prep work or baking involved. Enter this dessert of peaches and poundcake.

I bought poundcake from our local grocery store along with whipped cream. Then assembled the dessert. In a bowl place a piece of poundcake, top it with whipped cream and slices of fresh peaches. Because our peaches were a little sour we drizzled them with honey 🍯😋. Voila! A delicious dessert in minutes.
