Key Ingredients

The first thing that I noticed about this dessert is that it only requires a few basic ingredients that are readily available in everyone’s pantry. Here’s what you are going to need:

  • Peaches: To start off, you need fresh peaches. I recommend using fresh ones, instead of going with canned peaches. Just use any type of peach available – white or yellow.
  • Olive oil: It will make sure the peaches get caramelized without getting burnt.

Sugar Cinnamon Butter

In the center of the peaches goes a sweet cinnamon butter mixture that gives the fruit a warm and sticky flavor and texture. To make it, you are going to need:

  • Butter: Salted butter works great in this recipe as the salt brings out the flavor of the peaches.
  • Brown sugar: Adds a perfectly sweet touch to the peaches, helping in caramelization.
  • Ground cinnamon: The spice brings out the natural flavor of the peaches.

* Make sure the butter is not melted and is at room temperature so it mixes well with the other ingredients.

Serving Suggestions

Although the fried peaches are great on their own, there are so many things you can serve them with to up the dessert game. Here are a few ideas for you:

  • Ice cream or sorbet: Serve the warm peaches with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or sorbet. You can also use frozen yogurt.
  • Whipped cream: Add a dollop of whipped cream to the serving dish with peaches and top it off with cinnamon.
  • Granola: A chocolate granola topping goes great with peaches.
  • Honey: Keep things simple with a honey drizzle on the peaches.
  • Waffles and Pancakes: Peaches taste absolutely wonderful with a stack of warm pancakes and waffles for breakfast.
  • Nuts: Top off the peaches with crushed pecans, walnuts, or toasted almonds and dates.
