Sherry-Cake Dessert


  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 4 whole cloves

  • 6 to 8 slices pound, sponge or plain cake slices
  • 5 egg yolks
  • Peach segments


  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.

  5. Pour over the cake and peach segments.
