Baked Stone Fruit

Baked Stone Fruit

A super simple summer dessert making the most of juicy nectarines, plums and peaches while they are in their seasonal glory.

By baking stone fruit, the natural sugars melt into a delicious thick caramel syrup – perfect to be scooped on top of your favourite vanilla ice cream for a quick & easy summertime dessert!

Pro tip: serve leftover baked stone fruit (if there are any…) on top of porridge or yoghurt and granola for a delicious breakfast. You can also get super creative and add a crumble on top for a delightful baked stone fruit crumble.
