Tis the season for peaches. We were very fortunate this week to receive some peaches from Grandad's neighbour. Who can turn down fresh fruit from someone's tree in their own backyard and their wonderful generosity to give it to us? We are privileged.
There were some bumps and bruises on them however and the flavour was perhaps just a little tame, so I have created a very healthy delicious dessert.
Baked Peaches with a Crumble Topping
Halve and de-seed your peaches and place them in an ovenproof dish.
Make a crumble by combining the following ingredients:
1 tablespoon of shredded coconut per peach half
1 tablespoon honey (maybe more if you are doing a load of peaches)
1 teaspoon rosewater
some crumbled cereal (I use low gluten Kornies (à la cornflakes))
Place the crumble mix on each peach half.
Bake in a preheated 200degC oven for 10-15 minutes until golden.
These are absolutely lovely with a dessert wine such as Bleasdale late picked Verdelho if you feel like indulging just a wee bit.
Simplicity is bliss...enjoy!
