Oven-Baked Peaches & Vanilla Gelato

Chef Tony Egger shares a delicious dessert recipe to enjoy and to help you bring extraordinary home.

Serves 2


For the Peaches

  • 6 fresh, very ripe peaches - halved and pitted
  • 6 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter, unsalted - cut into 12 small pieces

For Serving

  • 2 scoops vanilla gelato / or Greek yogurt / or whipped cream
  • 1 tablespoon powdered sugar


Step 1 - Preheat the Oven

  • Preheat oven to 400°F / 200°C

Step 2 - Prepare the Peaches

  • Wash the peaches under cold water, cut in half and remove the stone
  • Transfer the peaches, cut side up, to a baking sheet pan lined with aluminum foil
  • Spoon ½ teaspoon brown sugar in the center of the peaches and place a small piece of butter on top of the brown sugar
  • Place peaches in the oven and bake uncovered in mid shelf position until the peaches are nicely roasted and fork tender, about 10 min
  • Remove from the oven and let cool
  • Keep the peach roasting liquid; which is left underneath the peaches on the aluminum foil

Step 3 - Serve the Peaches

  • Transfer the warm roasted peaches onto a serving plate
  • Spoon the roasting liquid on top of peaches
  • Dust with powdered sugar and serve with vanilla gelato, (or Greek yogurt or whipped cream) on the side

Tip - Top the peaches with one small round of fresh black pepper from the mill (adults only) and sprinkle with a little Maldon Sea Salt flakes. This will give this dessert an extra kick. Enjoy…
