Nana Jenny’s Hot Apricot Delicious

My mother-in-law is the most amazing cook and has very generously allowed me to share this recipe with you. Even the humble home cook like me can make it. As the title suggests, it works best with apricots, which will come into season during summer. But if you can’t wait until then, it can also be made with apples.

This dish looks like it takes a lot of preparation and effort but is actually made with minimal fuss and ingredients. It is a great dessert to make for a crowd, especially if you are short on time. You can literally whip it up very quickly. Pop it in the oven as soon as your main meal is out and it should be ready to go when plates have been cleared.

Serve straight from the oven with double cream and ice cream. If there happens to be any leftovers, it makes a ripper breakfast too.
