Simple Roasted Nectarines

I love simple dishes especially if they are easy and tasty as well! This makes for a very easy pudding and you will wish you had cooked one extra nectarine! Maderia is quite a rich sweet wine which you may not have. A dessert wine could be used or just replace with water and add a little extra sugar to the water in the tray.

Ingredients (Serves 4):

  • 4 ripe nectarines, halves and stones removed
  • 1 tbsp of demerara sugar
  • ½ teaspoon of butter per half
  • 1 glass of Madeira wine
  • 1 glass of water
  • Pinch of cinnamon per half

What simpler dish than a roasted peach or nectarine!
Prepare the nectarine halves and put into a baking dish. Add the wine and water around the halves (the halves being placed cut side up). Place the butter in the hollow of the nectarine and sprinkle each half with demerara sugar followed by a pinch of cinnamon. Roast for approx 30 minutes in an over at 190degC or until soft and golden. Serve with a couple of spoonfuls of the liquor in the pan and a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Simple and delicious.
