Baked Peaches with Vanilla Sugar

Monday, August 16, 2010

Stoned summer fruits are whack bang in season at the moment and there are lots and lots of different recipes you can use to make the most of them, however I think keeping things simple brings out the natural juicy flavours and leaves you with far less washing up to do. A win win situation I think you’ll agree! If you can’t get vanilla sugar you can quite easily make a homemade batch by popping a vanilla pod in a jar filled with caster sugar. Or alternatively just use caster sugar and a splash of good quality vanilla extract.

Serves 4
8 peaches, halved with stones removed
3 tablespoons of vanilla sugar
2 tablespoons of water
Vanilla ice cream to serve

Preheat the oven to 200oC/Gas Mark 6.

Arrange the peaches in a non stick baking tray and sprinkle over the water.

Dust each peach with a little of the vanilla sugar until each one is nicely coated.

Place the peaches into the oven for around an hour or until the fruit is tender when pierced with a knife.

Serve the peaches with a generous scoop of vanilla ice cream.
