Share This Recipe

Ingredients

2 pounds very ripe peaches

1/4 cup sugar

2 cups heavy cream

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 pound cornbread either store-bought or homemade

Directions

  1. Score the bottom of peaches with an "X." Remove the skins of the peaches by dropping them in a pot of simmering water for 30 to 60 seconds. Remove the peaches, set aside to cool in a bowl of ice water and then peel off the loosened skins. Remove the pits from the peaches and then finely chop the flesh. Put the chopped peaches in a bowl.
  2. Pour the cream into a large mixing bowl. Add a 1/4 cup sugar and the vanilla extract. Whip into soft peaks.
  3. Cut the corn bread into thin slices. Layer the bottom of a clear glass trifle or other serving bowl with a third of the cornbread. Add a third of the peaches on top of the cornbread and then a third of the whipped cream on top of that. Repeat the layers two more times and crumble the final layer of the cornbread on top.
  4. Refrigerate and serve cold.
