Roasted Peach Parfait with Gingerbread Granola

For the granola

Preheat the oven to 180℃.

In a large bowl, add all of the ingredients and mix well with a wooden spoon until all well combined.

Spread the mixture across 2 large baking trays lined with baking paper. Place into the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, tossing the granola after 10 minutes.

Remove from the oven and allow granola to cool completely before storing in airtight containers, or jars.

Notes

Granola will store in an airtight container or jar for up to 2 weeks.

 

For the Peaches

Preheat the oven to 180℃.

Place peach quarters into a baking dish, sprinkle over the coconut sugar, ginger and drizzle over the vanilla and lemon juice. Toss gently, then place into the oven for 15 minutes, or until just tender.

Meanwhile, make the Mascarpone Cream. Place the cream into a stand mixer and whip for until fluffy and stiff peaks form. Add the mascarpone and whip again until combined. Add in the sugar and whip again.

To assemble Parfaits, layer the Marscapone Cream and Roasted Peaches. Garnish with the Gingerbread Granola and coconut flakes. Repeat for another layer.

Fruit Nut Fudge Brownie

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Grease and line base and sides of a 27cm x17cm slice pan with baking paper, extending paper over sides.
  2. Combine fruit and rum or juice in saucepan and bring just to the boil. Set aside to cool, stirring occasionally. Set aside 1/4 cup of the fruit mixture for decorating the top.
  3. Heat butter and chocolate in saucepan over low heat and stir until melted and combined. Set aside to cool 10 minutes.
  4. Whisk sugar and eggs together in large bowl, then whisk in cooled chocolate mixture and remaining soaked fruit. Sift flour, cocoa and baking powder into the bowl and add half of the hazelnuts (saving some for the top). Stir until combined. Pour into prepared pan and scatter with reserved fruit and nuts.
  5. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until tested with a skewer. Some crumbs will cling to the skewer. Allow to cool in the pan for 30 minutes before removing. Cut into 18 pieces and serve warm and gooey or cool and fudgy.

Gingerbread Bundt Cake with Maple Fruit Glaze

Preheat oven to 180℃. 

Add the Sunbeam Mixed Fruit and cover with maple syrup. Allow to sit to soak while making the cake.  

Prep your bundt tin by rubbing all over with coconut oil and dusting with a little caster sugar to get into all the crevices.   

In a large bowl, add the flour, baking powder, soda, salt and spices. Mix together to combine.  

In a stand mixer, add the butter and coconut sugar. Cream together. Add in the eggs and coconut treacle, then mix until smooth. Add in the milk and mix again until combined.  

Add in the dry mix ¼ cup at a time, until you form a smooth batter.  

 Pour the cake batter into the prepared bundt tin, then bake for 40-45 minutes until cooked through (piece the middle with a skewer, and if it comes out clean it’s done!). Remove from the oven and allow to cool in the tin for 15 minutes and carefully flip and allow the cake to pop out.  

To make the icing:  beat together the cream cheese and butter until smooth and creamy. Add sugar and milk and beat until desired consistency is reached. The icing should be thin enough that it can run down the cake. Add a little more milk as needed to reach this consistency. Add the salt, cinnamon and vanilla. Blend until well combined.  

 Frost the Gingerbread Bundt Cake and spoon over the Fruit Glaze and toasted walnuts.
