Prep time 25 mins
Cooking time 35 mins


    • 4 nectarines, stoned
    • 6 apricots, halved and stoned
    • 200ml (⅓ pint) Marsala
    • 3 tbsp clear honey
    • 25g (1oz) unsalted butter
    • 2 tbsp melted butter

    For the Florentines:

      • 2 egg whites
      • 100g (3½ oz) icing sugar
      • 1 tbsp plain flour
      • 300g (10oz) flaked almonds
    • Method

                        1. Preheat the oven to gas 4, 180°C, fan 160°.
                        2. Place all the prepared fruit into a mixing bowl and toss with the Marsala and honey until well coated. Transfer to a shallow ovenproof dish, fitting the fruit snugly together, and dot with the butter. 
                        3. Roast for 30 minutes until the fruit is tender and plenty of juice has coloured the dish. 
                        4. Meanwhile, make the Florentines. Lightly grease 2 large baking sheets. 
                        5. Mix together the butter, egg whites, sugar and flour until smooth, then add the almonds. 
                        6. With damp fingers, divide the mixture into 16 piles and place on the prepared baking sheets, well spaced apart, then lightly flatten. 
                        7. Bake for 15 minutes until golden. 
                        8. Cool and serve with the baked nectarines and apricots.
