“When Debbie first described this dessert to me she didn't call it divine. She said it was... well, a more R-rated adjective. And it was. Debbie's original recipe calls for canned peaches, but I used sour cherries, and used the drained juice to make cherry vanilla ice cream which I served with the hot pudding. It was absolutely.... divine!”

  3. Pour into a greased 8" x 8" baking pan.
  4. Top with the sliced fruit.
  5. Bake for approximately one hour.
  6. While the cake is baking, bring the sugar and cream to a boil, making sure that all the sugar is dissolved.
  7. Immediately after taking the cake out of the oven, stab it all over (done best to the soundtrack of Psycho).
  8. Pour the cream sauce over the cake and serve.
  9. Best served warm, so if you don't serve this right away reheat gently.
