Sweet Melissa Sundays: Peach Melba Sauce


This week's recipe for Sweet Melissa Sundays was actually supposed to be Pavlova Peach Melba: a meringue topped with sweetened whipped cream, fresh peaches and raspberries, and a tangy raspberry sauce. It sounded lovely and springy, but I have a thing against eggwhites. Divinity, meringue, even homemade marshmallows; they gross me out and I just can't make myself eat them! But I didn't want to skip the week entirely, so I made just the Peach Melba sauce, and served it over vanilla ice cream. It was delicious! I didn't love the peach slices or fresh raspberries as ice cream toppings, but the fresh raspberry sauce itself was amazing and I will definitely make it again.

Many thanks to Patty of Birding, Blossoms, and Baking, our hostess for the week. You can find the recipe for the Peach Melba sauce, as well as the meringue it was supposed to top, on her blog here.

  1. Good idea to make the sauce and top your ice cream instead of skipping entirely :) The sauce was really delicious and while I'm not huge on meringues either, I thought the combo here with the fruit was pretty tasty. Great pics!

  4. I have some leftover raspberry sauce and was just telling the hubby that it would make a great ice cream topping. Good to know it works :-) I know that I keep sneaking some of the sauce out of the fridge on it's own.
