Sherry-Cake Dessert



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


  1. Boil sugar, water and cloves together for 5 minutes. Cool, then add sherry.
  2. 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.
  3. 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). Pour over the cake and peach segments. Garnish as desired.
  4. Serve hot or cold.
