This is one of our family’s favourite Winter desserts. I learned it from my husband’s mother many years ago. It’s absolutely quick and easy, and if you have a frying pan, you can make it. I always stock canned peaches in my pantry, so that I can make this dessert anytime. Everyone gets excited once they know I am making this dessert. You’ve got to try it!
