Debbie's Divine Dessert

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by Mirj2338

When Debbie first described this dessert to me she didn't call it divine. She said it was... well, a more R-rated adjective. And it was. Debbie's original recipe calls for canned peaches, but I used sour cherries, and used the drained juice to make cherry vanilla ice cream which I served with the hot pudding. It was absolutely.... divine!

This truly is divine. The cream mixture just raises it to a whole new level. For the fruit, I actually used the rhubarb I was left with after making Rhubarb Vodka (#13315) - worked extremely well with the soft white cake and cream! Baked this in a 9" round pan and the cake tested done after 45 minutes; served with vanilla ice cream; found the dessert divine. Thank you Mirj and Debbie!
