Baked Peaches with Honey...please pass the Ruby Port!

Recently I checked out a beautiful cookbook from the local library. It's called What Katie Ate by Katie Quinn Davies. I wrote about it, and added photos, over at Novel Meals. If you'd like, check it out HERE.



My representative sweet dish from this book is baked peaches. It's easy. Humble. Too delicious to be able to prepare in just 20 minutes. It only takes 2 minutes to toss together, honest!



Halve the peaches and remove pit, scrape the yucky brown out and toss away.



Drizzle a small amount of honey into the peach...next time we are adding cinnamon as well as honey.



Bake for 20 minutes in a 350 F oven. Add a small spoonful (or two) of vanilla ice cream.



Served with port, this combo of warm peach and honey contrasting with the icy vanilla melting in pools around the peach - perfection. Doug said it was one of the best desserts we've had in a long time.

Here it is again....it deserves a second look :-)




High praise, Katie. I will be preparing more from this gorgeous book soon.

Wine reviews coming up!

I have some fabulous peaches and raw honey...now if only it wasn't after 10 p.m. Hmmm, maybe baked peaches for breakfast tomorrow!

I hope you like them, we had them again last night, Janel. This time, we did use cinnamon and it was good too.

Oh the cinnamon would be a great addition.

Tina said...

Beth, next time we will brush with good quality vanilla. Alas, like you said, peach season is about gone.

This sure does look like my kinda dessert, Tina. I couldn't help remembering though when I was a child, my grandmother would slice up the peaches and put them right in the Port. Ironically, we were "allowed" to indulge:)

Thanks for sharing, Tina. I'm still hoping to find some "respectable" peaches this year. So far most I have managed to find have been a bit disappointing.

P.S. Cinnamon is a GREAT idea:)

Yum, sounds delicious! Louise shared the link to your blog with me and I'm browsing through. I make something similar to this dessert, maybe I'll write a post about that and link back here. Peaches are SO delicious any way you eat them.

Tina said...

Louise, I had not thought of adding them to port. That's another great idea!

Welcome, Mrs. K. I hope you will try the peaches and let me now what you think.
