Southern Comfort Peaches N’ Cream Popsicles
Originally published July 10, 2020. Updated on 4/29/2021
As you might know by now, I'm a big fan of combining peaches with Southern Comfort liqueur.
One of my most popular cake flavours - back when I had a cake business - utilized that combo (As well as flavouring the fondant with more Southern Comfort!), one of my favourite cheesecakes of all time - Peachy Southern Comfort Cheesecake - features the combo, and I even make a peach pie with it (Southern Comfort Peach Pie).
So, as my social media streams have been full of every manner of popsicle recipe lately, I got to thinking: How do I want to put that combo in a popsicle?
I immediately decided to riff on the traditional "Peaches N Cream" combo, creating a frozen yogurt pop with peaches and Southern Comfort combined into it.
Oh, SO good!
Unlike many desserts that utilize spirits or liqueurs as a flavouring agent, this one actually does cook all / most of the actual alcohol off, as the peaches are simmered in it for a while before turning it all into a popsicle.
The Popsicle Mold Used:
The number of popsicles this will yield will depend on the size of your mold.
As a note, this is the popsicle mold I used for this, and will be using for future recipes. I've had a hell of a time finding a popsicle mold I really like, and this one is finally *the one*, I think! It's nice and sturdy, a good size, really decent quality, and I like the way the lid / sticks work.
This recipe fills this mold perfectly - all 10 filled, no leftovers. The cavities are 3 oz each, so you can expect a similar yield from similarly sized molds.
This recipe would have fit nicely in my first cookbook, The Spirited Baker. It’s FULL of fun, tasty recipes using spirits and liqueurs for flavour – you should check it out:
Combining liqueurs with more traditional baking ingredients can yield spectacular results.Try Mango Mojito Upside Down Cake, Candy Apple Flan, Jalapeno Beer Peanut Brittle, Lynchburg Lemonade Cupcakes, Pina Colada Rum Cake, Strawberry Daiquiri Chiffon Pie, and so much more.
To further add to your creative possibilities, the first chapter teaches how to infuse spirits to make both basic and cream liqueurs, as well as home made flavor extracts! This book contains over 160 easy to make recipes, with variation suggestions to help create hundreds more! Order your hard copy here on my website, through Amazon, or through any major bookseller.
