There are a few things that come to mind when someone says “summer.” Beaches. Sunshine. Vacations. And if you’re a food lover: Cherries. Watermelon. Peaches.


Nothing says summer like peaches, and while there are tons of great recipes out there for peach cobbler, I’m here for something different.

And I won’t lie – this didn’t just come to me in a dream. I was inspired by this video by Bon Appetit on Facebook. I wanted to make it and for the life of me could not find a recipe, either linked in the video or on their website. Don’t you hate that?!

So I spent a day in the kitchen using their rough ingredients and nothing but my taste buds and ingenuity (and okay, the video made it pretty easy). And now I have a great recipe to share with you all.

Do you have trouble pitting peaches?

It certainly isn’t as simple as an avocado, but there are a few tips and tricks to pitting a peach.

First off, firmer peaches are easier to pit. The soft ones disintegrate into a juicy mess.

Take a peach a make a cut all around the peach, making sure you follow the “seam” or indention in the flesh. Grip and twist the two halves apart.

If this is difficult, try quartering the peach instead. Make another cut perpendicular to the original – make sure the cuts intersect at the stem (pictured). Now you can try twisting the peach apart again and once one quarter goes, it’s much easier to remove a quarter at a time. Remember to twist and push away from the pit.

If you are still having a tough time, don’t feel bad about making another cut around the center of the peach – this should give you 8 equal portions. This recipe will work with any of these cuts. Just have fun (and be safe)!

As for the sundae itself, it’s pretty easy to put together and a total crowd pleaser – bust it out when you want a simple, yet elegant end to a dinner party.

And I’ve always been a firm believer in the ties between good food and good experiences. Bonus points if your guests are able to sit on a patio and watch the sunset as they snack on these sundaes – it will be an experience they wont soon forget.

Peach Sundae with Honey and Toasted Oats

This Peach Sundae has Honey and Toasted Oats – it’s an easy and elegant dessert to round out a summer dinner party.

  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 8 sundaes 1x



Toasted Oats

  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup (4 Tbsp) unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon

Honey Peaches

  • 3/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup (4 Tbsp) unsalted butter
  • 4 peaches, halved or quartered
  • 8 scoops of vanilla ice cream


  1. In a stainless steel or cast iron skillet set over medium heat, toast the oats for 5 minutes, stirring frequently.
  2. Add the 1/4 cup of butter and stir so the oats are evenly coated.
  3. Add the 1/2 cup brown sugar and stir again to coat.
  4. Let cook for about 5 minutes, or until the sugar and oats have caramelized.
  5. Remove to a plate or sheet pan and spread in an even layer.
  6. Sprinkle with the 1/4 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp cinnamon and stir to coat.
  7. In the same pan over medium high heat, place the 3/4 cup honey.
  8. Stir frequently for 3-5 minutes, until the honey is thin and fragrant.
  9. Add the 1/4 cup butter and continue stirring. The honey should darken and thicken, caramelizing in the process.
  10. Add the peaches flesh side down and cook for 2 minutes on each side. If your peaches are pretty firm, cook 4 minutes each side.
  11. Remove from heat and set aside.
  12. In stemless wine glasses or small bowls layer about 1/4 cup of the toasted oats (reserve a pinch for sprinkling on top), a scoop of vanilla ice cream, then half or two quarters of a peach.
  13. Spoon some honey on top and then sprinkle with the reserved oats.

  1. Thanks for writing out the recipe! I also looked all over for it and finally landed on yours. Perfect.

  2. I made a double batch of the oatmeal topping in an iron skillet for a dinner party where I plan to serve my own peach sauce over ice cream. Honestly the proportions worked for me! This will be the perfect final touch for my dessert, thanks!

  3. Waaaay too much butter for the oats. Only need maybe 4T. My oats were greasy and didn’t make a nice granola texture.
