FOOD | Baked nectarines with raspberries

Baked nectarines with raspberries recipe

After a long day at work I thought it would be worth sharing a little treat with you. Since the beginning of February I have really been watching what I’m putting in my mouth – I’ve swapped the ever so delicious steak pies from Morrisons for a decent bowl of cous cous or an even tastier plate of homemade chilli con carne and my favourite Snickers has been replaced by bananas and raspberries. It actually ain’t that bad, let me tell ya! Now what’s really, extremely, mouth-wateringly tasty are my baked nectarines topped with raspberries.

What do you need for this delightful snack?
✓ nectarines (halved & pitted)
✓ raspberries
✓ honey
✓ vanilla extract
✓ brown sugar (or regular sugar if you’re short on the brown one)

Halved the nectarines and place them on a tray – I used baking paper to avoid mess. Preheat the over to 180 degrees. Whilst the oven is heating up, squeeze some honey over the nectarines. Try to do this as evenly as possible but don’t necessarily do a full coverage, okay? Sprinkle some sugar over the nectarines and add a few drops of vanilla extract on each nectarine. Bake for 15 minutes – the nectarines will be swimming in juice and will look kinda glazed at this point. Take them out and put 2-3 raspberries on each nectarine. Put back in the oven for another 15 minutes. BOOM! Your baked nectarines are ready to be devoured! 

A personal tip of the chef: Add some custard for the extra culinary touch!
