Forget S’mores! Our peach slicer turns fruit into the star with this fun dessert recipe.
- Yield: 4
- 3 fresh peaches
- 2 1/2 Tablespoons Balsamic Vinegar
- 2 1/2 Tablespoons honey
- Dash of salt
- 1 – 11 oz. angel food cake loaf
- 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
- 4 Tablespoons sugar- separated
- 2 teaspoons water
- 3 oz. frozen raspberries ( 3/4 cup)-thawed
- 1 cup whipping cream
Mix vinegar, honey, and salt together. Slice peaches and toss in dressing. Set aside.
Put water and 2 Tablespoons of sugar in a small saucepan. Over medium high heat, stir until dissolved, boil for 2 minutes. Place raspberries and sugar syrup in a food processor, blend until smooth. In a fine mesh sieve, strain out all seeds. Put in small container, and place in fridge to cool for later use.
Whip the whipping cream in a medium bowl, with the remaining 2 Tablespoons of sugar, until you reach soft peaks.
Cut cake into 8 slices. Brush sweetened condensed milk on all sides of the cake. Cut each slice into 6 large cubes.
Turn on grill to a medium heat. Thread the peaches and cake onto 11 inch skewers in an alternating pattern. Place on preheated, well oiled grill. Cook for 5 minutes on each side.
Serve with a drizzle of the raspberry sauce, and whipped cream.
