Caramelised peaches with toast and cream Recipe

  • 55g/2oz butter
  • 3 tbsp brown sugar
  • 4 canned peach halves, drained
  • 2 tbsp double cream
  • 2 free-range eggs
  • 150ml/5fl oz double cream
  • 2 tbsp caster sugar
  • 1 thick slice white bread
  • 2 tbsp double cream
  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4.
  2. For the peaches, melt the butter and sugar in a frying pan and add the peach halves. Cook for 4-5 minutes, turning once, or until the peaches are caramelised. Remove the peaches from the pan, then stir in the cream to make a butterscotch sauce.
  3. For the toast, whisk together the eggs, cream and sugar until smooth and creamy and soak the slice of bread in the mixture. Place the bread onto a baking tray and bake in the oven for 6-7 minutes, or until golden-brown and crisp.
  4. Serve the peach halves on top of the toast, with the butterscotch sauce spooned over the top and a drizzle of cream.
