Thank God it’s Friday… I am so ready for a weekend but wanted to share this delicious dessert with you before I log off. Hope you having a great summer and enjoying it with an abundance of fresh produce. Peaches have been looking awesome over the last couple of weeks, and I wanted to take advantage with a peachy dessert. I love the combination of fresh peaches, orange and vanilla in this dessert. The raspberry orange sauce is a must! It compliments the cake perfectly and brings it to a next level. Enjoy and have a nice weekend!
