There are some great ways to use fruit in desert, getting a range of textures and flavors in every bite! For anyone that’s looking for some great ideas, we have prepared a list of ways that you can use fruit to take the edge off.
1. Bake them with spices
Cinnamon, ginger, aniseed, nutmeg and cloves are just a few of the spices that can help to warm up a winter’s day. Use a few to spice up your fruit, baking everything in a touch of lemon and brown sugar and serving them with a dollop of cream! Bananas, peaches and a succulent combination of berries are just a few of the fruits for you to consider.
2. Sorbets and ice-creams
Imagine sitting by the window on a hot summer’s day with a good book and a bowl of homemade sorbet, amazing right? Sorbets are tart, ice-creams are creamy, and the one you choose to complete this picture is totally up to you! Try to find a shop that has an option for fruit delivery in Sydney, you can get the ingredients without having to step out into your hot drive way!
3. Pies, cakes and cookies galore!
All the above are bakery items that pair really well with a cup of tea or coffee. If you aren’t a fan of chocolate, you could add blue berries as an alternative to chocolate chips. The idea is to balance the sugar, you don’t want too much right?
