This is one of the quickest desserts I've ever made that also ended up being the biggest hit. Yes, it's fruit but it's dessert fruit!
Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: Australian
Serves: 4
  • 4 large freestone peaches (otherwise you'll never get the two halves apart)
  • 1 teaspoon oil
  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon demerara sugar
  1. Preheat BBQ to medium-high heat.
  2. Mix the demerara sugar and ground cinnamon together
  3. Cut through the peaches until you hit the stone all the way around, twist and separate. Pull the pit out.
  4. Brush with oil and place cut side down on the grill and leave for about 5-8 minutes until there are nice grill char marks.
  5. Flip the peaches over and drizzle just a bit of maple syrup on each one and sprinkle with demerara sugar and cinnamon.
  6. Cook about 5 more minutes, then plate up. Serve with whipped cream or ice cream and maybe a piece of shortbread.
