Ripe peaches don't need much more than a little spiced sugar and butter to turn them into a grand topping for cake and ice cream.

How to Make It

Step 1

Melt butter in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add brown sugar, peaches, and cinnamon, tossing slightly to coat. Cook peaches until softened and juices are released, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes.

Step 2

Toast pound cake slices in toaster until warm and slightly golden, about 2 minutes.

Step 3

Put a cake slice into each of 4 bowls and top with warm peaches, distributing evenly. Serve with scoops of ice cream.

Step 4

Chef's Notes

Out of season, you can substitute frozen peaches for fresh, just cook them a little longer to ensure they're heated through.
