Grilled Pound Cake and Peaches

As you know, I LOVE a good homemade dessert.  But there are times when you need (or just want) a great dessert but homemade just isn’t possible.  Today I’m sharing a wonderful semi-homemade dessert recipe adapted from a Walmart sample.  

As my family knows, I just CAN NOT pass up samples at the store.  I tease about going to Sam’s for “lunch” on sample day.  It doesn’t matter whether I’m hungry or not…. I SIMPLY CAN NOT PASS UP SAMPLES!  

On one of my many (and there have been MANY) recent trips to Walmart I spied the “Sample Lady“.  What did I do?  Made a “beeline” (whatever that is) for the sample stand. Quite frankly, I’d had a bit of a rough morning and a good sample always makes things better.  But THIS SAMPLE made things GREAT!  Sitting there on her precious little cart was the most adorable bit-sized pieces of pound cake topped with grilled peaches, whipped cream and a blueberry.

Nothing does a Southern girl’s heart good like a pieces of pound cake or peaches….put them together and you have the perfect remedy for just about anything.  (Insert Happy Dance here! Which, if my family is ready….you will be glad to know I DID NOT do in the store…although, I could have ‘cuz I was alone and you wouldn’t have known.  But, I refrained and was content to just be dancing on the inside)  

As I tasted this little mini slice of heaven the only thing I could think was….”WHY are these so small?!  I need more!”

I commented to the “Sample Lady” how wonderful they were and took a picture of the recipe posted on the cart.  We started chatting (‘cuz that’s what you do with strangers, in the South) and she explained to me how she “put her own spin” on these little beauties because she’d “been cooking for enough years to know what’s good”.  I chuckled, knowing I would have done the exact same thing….in fact, I did!  And after we chatted for a few more minutes…. I had another one…and she didn’t even care.  

Now, as much as I love samples I don’t usually purchase the things being sampled, but this time I just couldn’t resist.  I marched right over to the pound cakes (just a few feet away) and promptly placed peaches and pound cake in my cart, I already had whipped cream and blueberries at home.    

Here’s the Recipe:

*This recipe doesn’t contain exact measures.  Use more sugar if your peaches are a little tart and you can NEVER have too much butter….IMHO*

  • Lemon Cream Cake – one slice per person (pre-made and purchased from the Walmart bakery section)
  • 1-2 Nice Ripe Peaches
  • Butter
  • Sugar
  • Whipped Topping (I used Redi-Whip but other brands work fine or make it homemade if you have time)
  • Blueberries – washed and ready to eat

 

Butter both sides of the Lemon Cream Cake slices

 

Thinly slice peaches and set aside

I think I need to send the manager a letter telling him what a great job his “Sample Lady” is doing!

And one more picture…..just because!
