Elderflower Baked Peaches.
A few notes:
- You don't have to use elderflower cordial if you don't have any. You could just sprinkle over some brown sugar before baking, or maybe go down the alcohol route... Marsala would be lovely or you could use Amaretto and replace the digestives with Amaretti.
- This is a recipe that's easy to multiply for a crowd; allow 1 whole peach per person.
- I find that when you're only crushing a couple of bikkies, a pestle and mortar is the easiest way.
You will need
a small baking dish
1 tbsp elderflower cordial
2 tbsp creme fraiche
2 digestive biscuits, crushed
- Preheat your oven to 180°c.
- Halve the peaches, remove the stone, and lay cut side up in your baking dish.
- Spoon the elderflower cordial over the fruit and bake for 30 minutes.
- You can carry on with the recipe now and eat the peaches hot or leave them to cool before you add the topping and have them cold...either way, when you're ready to eat...
- Divide the creme fraiche equally between the peach halves, spooning it on top.
- Sprinkle over the biscuit crumbs.
- You're ready to dive in.
