This recipe is super simple. Great for when you really want something sweet, but you don't want a super complicated dessert

This looks SO GOOD. I love peaches and ice cream in the summer so this is going to be perfect!

I'm very much regretting not pairing this vanilla ice cream. I loved how the breaded part turned out--crispy on top but soft and cake-y in the middle.
