Mascarpone cheese is wonderful  with baked fruit. Try half marscapone and half gorgonzola. Now that is amazing!

Baked Nectarines

In keeping with the baked fruit philosophy……yummy and no-fuss.

nectarines honey marscapone cheese
sugar water fresh thyme sprigs
orange zest butter

Halve the nectarines, remove the stone and place in a shallow baking dish. Drizzle each half with honey and place a spoonful of marscapone in the hollow of each half. Surround the nectarines with sugar, water, thyme sprigs and orange zest. Bake for 30 – 50 minutes (depending on the ripeness of the fruit) until soft and caramelised.

Alternatively, leave out the marscapone and replace with butter. Sprinkle the sugar over the fruit as well, and bake as above. Serve with marscapone.

Baked Plums with Marscapone

I can’t believe that I omitted this – I cook it so often.

plums honey marscapone cheese
sugar water fresh thyme sprigs
orange zest butter

Halve the plums, remove the stone and place in a shallow baking dish. Drizzle each half with honey and place a spoonful of marscapone in the hollow of each half. Surround the nectarines with a sugar, water, thyme sprigs and orange zest, or, for a gutsier taste, surround with a little marsala and some cinnamon pieces. Or try water, shaves of lemon peel and some star anise. Bake for 30 – 50 minutes (depending on the ripeness of the fruit) until soft and caramelised.

Alternatively, leave out the marscapone and replace with butter. Sprinkle the sugar over the fruit as well, and bake as above. Serve with marscapone.
