Apricot & Peach Sponge Dessert

My cousin Bev gave me this recipe. She often makes it when she wants something that is not only yummy but really easy to make. I am all for making easy desserts, especially if I don’t have a lot of time to spend on preparing dinner for when guests are coming over. Try this recipe as I know that once you have made it you will love it.


1 round double layer sponge cake from the bakery
2 tabelspoons apricot jam ( I use one with no added sugar)
250g Marscapone or light Philly cheese
250g thickened cream
small tin peach slices
2 tablespoons strawberry jam
2 tablespoons sweet sherry


In a medium size bowl, beat the marscapone cheese (or philly) and cream together until thick and smooth. On one layer of your sponge, spread over the apricot jam. Drain the peaches and layer them on top of the jam. Spread half of the cheese mix over these then place the other sponge over this. Spread the remainly cheese mix over the top and sides of sponge. Heat the jam and sherry slightly while mixing together. Slice your sponge and serve on plates with a little of the strawberry mix over it.
