This recipe can be made with any seasonal fruits 

  • Prep: 10 mins
  • Cook: 10 mins
  • Yields: Serves: 4


1 large knob soft butter

60ml treacle sugar

120ml pecan nuts

4 nectarines (firm, but ripe)

Marscapone or double thick cream to serve


1On a large piece of foil, spread the butter over a 20cmx20cm area in the middle of the piece of foil. Leave space all around so that the sides of the foil can be folded over the top of the fruit.

2Over the buttered area, sprinkle and sugar and the nuts.

3Wash, and halve the nectarines and remove the pip. Arrange the nectarines, cut side down, as close together as possible in a single layer.

4Fold the foil over the top, and make sure there are no holes for the butter to escape, use a second piece of foil if necessary.

5Place over low coals for about 5 – 10 minutes, until the butter is melted and the sugar has started to caramelise.

6Remove from the coals, open the foil and invert onto your serving dish so that the nuts are on top, and the caramel juices drip down over the fruit.

7Serve with marscapone or cream.
