Sherry-Cake Dessert

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 4 whole cloves
  • 1/2 cup sherry
  • 6 to 8 slices pound, sponge or plain cake slices
  • 5 egg yolks
  • Peach segments

Instructions

  1. Boil sugar, water and cloves together for 5 minutes.
  2. Cool, then add sherry.
  3. While syrup cools, arrange cake slices on a large round platter. Arrange like flower petals, their ends meeting toward the center, leaving a 3-inch diameter hole in the center. Between cake slices arrange long segments of peaches.
  4. Slightly heat yolks, pour a little syrup over them, and stir. Empty into remaining syrup and stir over medium heat until mixture coats a spoon (about 5 minutes).
  5. Pour over the cake and peach segments.
