I actually cooked this about two weeks ago... but it's been crazy busy around here and I haven't had time to post. :-(
My dessert reportiore is surprisingly limited (strange considering how much I love sugar) and it is rare for me to cook anything sweet. However in this case I had two inspirations:
Ms Sarah's adventures with Nigella at
and the luscious peaches and raspberries on sale at my local greengrocer.
I couldn't resist. Armed with little more than good intentions, I set about whipping up something gorgeous. I started simply by finding a suitable bowl and dumping in four sliced peaches and the 150 g punnet of raspberries. A splash of white wine was mixed with (no joke) a tin of Heinz pureed Apple & Peach [7-9 months] and poured over the top.
The crumble was a little tricky. I don't generally carry flour in my pantry as I cook alone and always end up throwing it out. The only suitable substitute was a bag of toasted muesli lurking in the back of the cupboard (a vague reminder of a long-forgotten health kick). A tablespoon each of butter (melted) and brown sugar plus two teaspoons of cinnamon later, we were
30 minutes in the oven and out came....
OK so it doesn't look fab, but with a little double cream, this really was a Dessert Storm. :-)
