I’m not the biggest fan of summer but I am the biggest fan of summer fruit. I start mourning stone fruit as soon as they disappear from the shelves and I know we are in for a long few apple & citrus laden months. This is a great time of year to really get stuck into summers bounty because there is plenty around, so I rounded up 10 of my favourite recipes with summer fruit. Also, this morning I could feel that first tinge of autumn in the air with an ever-so-slight chill, so we are running out of time here.
Mangoes are at their very best right now and I ate one so perfect the other day I wanted to cry. This is one fruit that doesn’t benefit from cooking and is perfect on its own. I love this brûlée technique with yoghurt and palm sugar that forms a delicious caramel topping but doesn’t really interfere with the integrity of the fruit. The passion fruit takes it to whole new tropical fruit level.
This is my favourite unbaked cheesecake recipe and the nut crumble the best I’ve encountered. Its really easy to knock little dishes of this up and you are seriously going to impress anyone you feed it to. I promise. I also made a lemon version if that appeals to you more).
This is like eating a raspberry cloud and is easy and super impressive.
While we are on the topic of raspberries, this is a vibrant and delicious ice cream with a hit of boozy limoncello.
This recipe for purple plum torte that is super famous on the internet is in my all-time favourite top 5 baking recipes. I make it every year when dark plums are in season. Like now. The fruit bakes into delectable jam-like pools and its utterly irresistible.
This is my all-time fave sweet scone recipe and the pomegranate seeds burst in your mouth in the most delightful way.
Here I combined passion fruit curd with crunchy meringue in a creamy ice cream and its so delicious.
I’ve been all over blueberries lately and I love this easy muffin recipe with oats and almond.
This recipe has only 5 ingredients and is made from crimson (red) grapes which are in full season now.
This is a delightful way to poach apricots and extract all their vibrant flavour. Delicious served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
