A Month of Sundaes

15 Jul

July is national ice cream month. What a wonderful thing to celebrate! The library has lots of cookbooks focused on making your own ice cream desserts. A fun one to read is A month of sundaes by Michael Turback (641.862 T931m). How does a Tin Roof Sundae sound? How about a Fire Chief Special or a Pink Flamingo? Fascinating history mixed with 150 recipes for all kinds of ice cream desserts make this book a treat.

Pound Cake Melba

4 slices pound cake

Vanilla ice cream

4 poached peach halves

2/3 cup grenadine syrup

1/2 cup toasted almonds, chopped

Place a slice of pound cake in the bottom of each of four dessert bowls. Top each with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and then a peach half, cut side down, on the ice cream. Ladle grenadine syrup over the top and sprinkle with chopped, toasted almonds.

(From staff: Don’t want to poach peaches? Just peel and sprinkle with sugar. Or use frozen or even canned. We won’t tell.)
