Hello hello! The sun is shining out there and happiness is in the air. After indulging in a nice meal today I had the perfect summer dessert; I caramelized some peaches which needed eating up, added a bit of vanilla essence and almond flakes and matched them with vanilla ice cream; a dessert made in heaven!
I love the sweet caramel which forms on top of the peaches; it matches perfectly with the almonds and ice cream.
Give this a go and enjoy the gorgeous summer weather which has even arrived in the UK after a series of really bad summers. A treat at last!
