We’re at that transitional time of year. It still feels like summer most of the time but there are hints of fall in the air, especially in the morning, and certain trees are just starting to turn. The produce situation is the same—I’m seeing more squash and apples, yet late summer fruit is still pretty abundant and delicious.
This recipe is a way to use those luscious, juicy late-season peaches and the grill before it get too cold (although we love and use our new grill so much that I don’t think anything short of a blizzard will keep us away).
This recipe is truly one of my all-time favorite summer recipes. It’s simple and exceptionally delicious. It’s easy to prep, easy to make, and only requires a hand-full of ingredients. I haven’t found one person who doesn’t love it. Plus, it feels a little bit healthy since you’re using fruit (while I wouldn’t classify it as healthy, it’s at least better than, say, a slice of chocolate cake).
The flavors meld so beautifully, and the short amount of time spent on the heat of the grill just warms the peaches and angel food cake through, bringing out slightly deeper, more mellow flavors. The cake also gets crispy on the outside, soft and spongy on the inside—perfect!
It’s a perfect way to enjoy the waning days of summer….
