Mexican Crema Fresca Peach Dessert

This simple, yet sinfully delicious “comfort food” was a childhood favorite of the company’s founder, Mark Wieser. His mother always made fresh peach preserves from the family orchard and often served this dessert, which the family enjoyed with coffee after dinner.

Prep Time:  5 minutes
Cook Time:  15 minutes

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spread the bread cubes out in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake the cubes for 10 minutes, or until slightly dried. While cubes are baking, empty the preserves into a 2-quart saucepan. Cook over medium heat just until the preserves have melted, about 5 minutes; set aside. Remove pan from oven and transfer the bread cubes to a 9″ x 13″ baking dish. Pour the hot preserves over the bread cubes, distributing well over all of the bread. Stir to coat bread well. Set aside until preserves have cooled to room temperature. Pour the Crema Fresca over the top of the bread cubes and serve, spooning the dessert into individual bowls. Serves 8 – 10.
