TWD - Cranberry Upside-Downer

Tuesdays with Dorie is here and hosted by Sabrina of Superfluous. The recipe may be called cranberry upside-downer but I did Dorie's alternative suggestion and added peaches and raspberries instead of cranberries. I also made homemade peach ice cream using my friend's Grandma's recipe (which is completely TOOOO soft for scooping yet!).

Rushing pictures is frustrating because no matter how many times I spin the plate, the ice cream is still melting and the shot is not going to improve.

Now the ice cream is hard and squishes down the cake. Maybe I should have quit while I was behind. Can I send a tast-o-gram?

The prettiest part is putting all the ingredients in the 8 - inch baking pan. The flavor for this cake is delicious with fresh peaches, raspberries and a simple syrup at the bottom, accompanied with crushed pecans. The cake was moist and the peach ice cream on top had just enough little chunks of peaches to add a nice touch. Thank you Sabrina for hosting. What a delicious choice! You can find the recipe at Sabrina's blog or buy Dories cookbook; packed full of wonderful goodies.

The peach ice cream is made by processing fresh peaches into small chunks. You do not want complete peach puree nor do you want too big of peach chunks. The chunks will harden into solid blocks of peach ice. Not fun chomping into. I love this ice cream recipe, coming from an official grandma recipe box!
Fresh Peach Ice Cream:
1 heaping pound of peaches
1 1/4 c. sugar
2 c. heavy cream
1 1/2 c. light cream (half-n-half)
1 T. lemon juice
dash of salt
Peel and pit peaches. Put peach halves and sugar in food processor and pulse until you have little peach chunks and puree both. Pour into bowl and add rest of ingredients, mixing well. Refrigerate until thoroughly chilled. Pour the mixture into an ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturers directions. Makes about 1 1/2 quarts.

This looks fantastic! As one who loves sorta soupy ice cream, it looks perfect to me.

I can imagine this made during the holidays with cranberries.

Shandy, I wanted to make this so badly but with teaching starting, Monday, it just did not work out.

This is one, I have to make up.

I love your changes and the addition of that delicious peach ice cream makes it that much better. Beautiful job.

Judy said...

Your cake looks great, and that melting ice cream just adds to the deliciousness.

Eliana said...

This came looks awesome Shandy. Especially with that scoop of ice cream on top (and even with the melty one too).

Jeannette said...

that ice cream looks AMAZING! i'll have to give it a shot!

and i think that the melty ice cream is much more inviting... it just screams creamy dreamy warm and yummy!

That cake looks seriously good! I am so tempted by the peaches and raspberries combination. I love any dessert with fruit in it.
