Recipe by Rhonda J

I cut this out of my local newspaper but have yet to make it , i thought it sounded really good and would make a nice summery dessert.

Top Review by Jopalis

This was delicious. With my addition of a homemade sponge cake (Nick Malgieri recipe), it would be 5 stars. It was a light and lovely summer dessert. I needed far more of the liqueur mixture and basted it on the cake layers with a pastry brush. Be sure your peaches are at least a little ripe or they are too hard. It's lovely and I will be making it and other fruit/liqueur variations over and over.
