An excellent summer variation of a classic! Not too sweet, a great background for good fruit. No time for the wine sauce, but it sounds inspired. I substituted light brown sugar and almond extract for the white sugar and vanilla - both enhance peaches. Stirred chopped peaches into a portion of the hot pudding to soften them a bit...ate this right away, was excellent. Chilled the rest of the pudding to serve with fruit on top. Any stone fruit would be good with this I think: pitted Bing cherries, plums, nectarines, apricots.
