~peaches with vanilla and orange cream~

This is a lovely light summer dessert.

Peaches and cream.

Fruity and made in double-quick time!

Preparation time: 15 min

Ingredients: serves 6

6 peaches

1tbsp Grand Marnier/Cointreau/orange juice

juice of half an orange

sugar if necessary

For the vanilla and orange cream

284ml thick cream/ creme fraîche

2 tsp castor sugar

1tbsp orange juice

finely grated orange zest

1tsp vanilla extract

How to : Slice the peaches into a bowl and add the liqueur or orange juice and a sprinkling of sugar if necessary. Stir, then cover and leave until ready to serve. If the peaches are a bit hard or tasteless, simmer the peaches, liqueur and sugar together for a few mins, then leave aside until ready to eat.

To make the vanilla and orange cream put all the ingredients in a bowl and whisk until thick. Chill until ready to eat, then stir gently before serving on top of the peaches.

It’s great for peaches that are a bit hard or tasteless!

Made in a few minutes, it’s refreshing and the perfect end to any meal!

  1. Nothing like some fresh cfruit and cream! I eat peaches and cream quite often when they are in season, but never add much to the cream. The orange zest looks pretty and flowery mixed in with the cream

  2. What a perfect summer dessert. Congratulations on your two recent awards.
