This combination of juicy peaches with a creamy caramel sauce is the perfect light snack to get you through the day. The sweet blend of flavours makes this a tasty treat, and the sea salt really makes it stand out.
You can enjoy this dish all year round, but it is particularly yummy in summer because of its refreshing taste. An added bonus is that the peaches will be ripe and in season, too!
It's a remarkably easy dish to whip up, and can be ready to eat in just 30 minutes. Not only is it simple, but it's also nutritious - you can treat yourself without having a cheat day (well. we won't tell about the sugar and the cream)! So if you're looking to try something new, then throw on that apron and follow these steps to make this healthy-ish snack with a twist.
How to make Peaches with Caramel Sauce
Combine the sugar, salt and cinnamon into a large bowl; add the peaches, and toss to coat well. Heat a large frying pan over a medium-high heat. Add the peaches, cut sides down, and sprinkle with the remaining sugar-cinnamon mixture. Cook for 5 minutes, then turn the peaches and cook for a further 3 minutes until tender and caramelised.
Add the brandy; cook until reduced for about 1 minute. Add knobs of the butter and cream; swirl to melt the butter and combine. Cook for a further 2 minutes until thick and saucy.
