  • 125ml white wine
  • 2 tbsp clear honey
  • 4 ripe yellow-fleshed nectarines

  • 100g crunchy amaretti biscuits
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 1 tbsp toasted flaked almonds
  • 1 tbsp golden caster sugar
  • 1 tbsp butter



    Butter is a dairy product made from separating whole milk or cream into fat and…

  • 1 vanilla pod, split and seeds loosened
  • 175g raspberries
  • clotted cream or thick Jersey cream, to serve


  1. Mix the wine and honey, and stir to dissolve. Halve and stone the nectarines, and place them, flesh-side up, in a medium ceramic baking dish. Crush the biscuits well, then add the yolk, 2 tbsp of the wine mixture and the flaked almonds. Mix together, then spoon into the nectarines where the stones were. Use all of the mixture.

  2. Scatter the sugar over the nectarines, then top each mound of biscuit mixture with a little knob of butter. Pour the remaining wine and honey around – but not over – the fruit, add 1 tbsp water, then tuck in the vanilla pod. Can now be chilled for up to 4 hrs.

  3. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Bake the nectarines for 30 mins until the fruit is soft and the biscuit filling is crisp and golden. Carefully stir the raspberries through the pan juices, then leave to cool for 15 mins before serving with cream.

Completely yummy!! Great that it can be made ahead and just pop into the oven when serving main course. I was a little shocked at the cost of vanilla pods but it was worth it. Everyone commented how nice it was - it looks special and tastes great but with not much effort. Definitely going to make again - I've got left over amaretti biscuits and vanilla pods to use up!!

Loved this recipe. So easy, especially as it can be prepared ahead - I left it in the fridge overnight before baking and it was fine. Perfect for a dinner party, even without the raspberries.

This was very easy, but delicious and looked very impressive. My guests commented that it tasted very indulgent. If you are looking for an easy dinner party dessert this is it .
