I would like to thank you in advance for your support with a tasted and tested dessert recipe. This definitely can earn itself a place at your Christmas table.
Last night I had dinner with my high school classmates and I brought this dessert with me to share with them. It was a happy and fun evening as always and I was SO HAPPY to meet again one of my high School classmates, Sally. We have not seen each other for 40 years after we left school. Isn’t that AMAZING to be connected again? She lives in Australia now and came back for a holiday.
Here is the dessert I made for them and I was thrilled that they all loved it! The sweetness of the peach combined with the real tart flavor of the cranberries gives this dessert a nicely balanced taste. The cinnamon and nutmeg enhance the flavor with their fragrance. When this is served with some vanilla custard sauce or a dollop of vanilla ice cream, it is divine!
Peach and Cranberry crumble
1 cup julienned fresh peaches
¾ cup fresh cranberries
2 tbs brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
½ tsp nutmeg
60g cold butter, cut into small cubes
25g castor sugar
Place (A) in a pot and cook the mixture for about 5 minutes all till the fruits are a little soft and the sugar is melted. Set aside to cool. When it is cooled a bit, transfer to a baking dish. Sift flour and salt and then add butter. Rough mix with your fingers till the mix resembles fine bread crumbs. Lightly toss in sugar and sprinkle over ((B) over (A). Bake in a preheated oven at 200C or 400F for 30 minutes or until the top is golden brown. Best served warm with vanilla ice cream or vanilla custard sauce.
