  • 4 ripe peach



    Sweet, juicy and fragrant, peaches are one of the most beautiful fruit around. Around the size…

  • 6 amaretti biscuit
  • 2 x 200ml tubs low-fat crème fraîche
  • 85-100g demerara sugar


  1. Heat grill to high. Stone and slice the peaches. Place the biscuits in a plastic food bag and crush with a rolling pin. Arrange the peaches and the crumbled biscuits in the bottom of an ovenproof dish. Spoon over the crème fraîche, smooth with a knife so the peaches are entirely covered, then sprinkle over enough sugar to cover the crème fraîche. Place the dish under the grill for 3 mins or until the sugar has caramelised.

Made with blue berries and raspberries. Perfect!

Lovely flavours - the peach and amaretti biscuits really complimented each other. I actually heated my pudding through before grilling the sugar on top as I was feeling cold and wanted a warm pudding! So the crunchiness was lost a little but it still tasted lovely.

made it for a big dinner party (10 people) - massive win, and so simple! although couldn't find amaretti biscuits, so used biscuits with honey and added some ground almonds
