Peachie Angel

Peachie Angel
The sliced peaches were flavored with Cinnamon & Nutmeg!  Four tender peach slices were resting on a slice of Angel Food Cake and 4 more peach slices surrounded the cake drizzled with a light spiced syrup.  Gracing the top of this delicious dessert was a squirt of Reddi-wip!

This fragrant light dessert did bring back the recent memory of dining at Poogan's Porch in Charleston, SC.  It was a wonderful dining experience tasting the delicious Lowcountry cuisine at this quaint restaurant!  Our entrees were scrumptious and we were also tempted to sample a mouth watering southern dessert.  While savouring the aroma and then tasting the light, appealing, scrumptious dessert that contained sliced peaches and a very light cake, I knew that I would try to duplicate it after I returned home.  It was good!   

I sure did this past weekend!  The Big Y's Bakery does sell Angel Food Cakes.  Del Monte sliced peaches in a light syrup were also purchased.  Easy to prepare and soo tasty!  The name of the Poogan's Porch dessert - I do not recall, so I am naming my light delicious dessert- Peachie Angel!
