As much as I love a good dessert, I tend to gravitate towards recipes that are simple to make and don’t require a lot of time. These baked peaches are just that! 

This dessert is one of my favourites to enjoy during the summertime and is a great way to  use those delicious peaches when they’re in season. All you need is a few ingredients and you can be enjoying these in around 15 minutes!

Ingredients needed: 

  • Peaches: use fresh, ripe peaches. They should be slightly soft to the touch. No need to take the skins off!
  • Butter: this gives the peaches a delicious buttery flavour. I used unsalted butter because that’s typically what I have in the fridge, but salted would also work just fine.
  • Sugar: I prefer using coconut sugar or monk fruit sweetener, but you can use any type of sugar that you have on hand. I’ve also made it plenty of times without any sugar and find it to still be delicious, however the sugar does help with caramelization. 
  • Ground cinnamon: adds some warmth and enhances the flavour of the roasted peaches. 
  • Vanilla ice cream or greek yogurt: you can definitely leave the peaches as is or slice them and add them to another dish, but I think pairing them with vanilla ice cream makes the most delicious dessert.
