Juicy and creamy with a sweet crunch of brioche. A delicious, quick summer dessert.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
3 peaches, halved and pitted
11/2 tablespoons maple syrup or clear honey
2 sprigs fresh thyme
125g mascarpone
1/2 tablespoon icing sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons butter, at room temperature
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
4 slices brioche

Method

  1. Heat the oven to 180ºC and line a baking tray with baking parchment.
  2. Put the peaches on the tray, drizzle them with the maple syrup or honey and top each with a sprig of thyme. Roast for 20 minutes or until the peaches are soft and cooked through, then set aside.
  3. Meanwhile, in a bowl combine the mascarpone with the icing sugar and vanilla, and mix well. In another small bowl, mix together the butter with the cinnamon.
  4. Heat the grill to a medium heat. Lay the brioche slices on a baking tray and grill them for 1–3 minutes until lightly golden. Keep an eye on them as brioche cooks quickly. Remove the tray, turn the brioche over and spread the untoasted sides with the cinnamon butter. Return the tray to the grill and toast for another 1–3 minutes until the butter has melted and the brioche slices are golden.
  5. Remove from the grill, turn the slices over and spread the mascarpone mixture on the other side. Lay the roasted peach halves on top and serve.
