As part of a Sunday brunch or simply as a light pudding, this is quick as thieves and really, really good

  • Preparation time: 10
  • Cooking time: 15


  • 4 ripe peaches, halved and pitted
  • 20g unsalted butter

  1. Preheat the oven to 220°C, gas mark 7. Sit the peaches, cut-side up, in a roasting tin. Put a dab of butter on each peach half and roast for 15 minutes.
