Servings 4 people


  • We used a Le Creuset Stoneware Heritage Oval Dish to bake this dessert.


  • 6 California Stone Fruit nectarines or peaches cut into thin wedges
  • 1 orange juiced
  • ½ small lemon juiced
  • ¼ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp ground cardamom
  • 3 star anise
  • 1–2 vanilla bean pods cut in half lengthways
  • 3 tbsp Manuka Emporium Manuka honey

To serve


  • Preheat the oven to 180 °C.
  • Place stone fruit into a casserole dish so it’s tightly packed.
  • Pour over the orange and lemon juice.
  • Add the orange zest, cinnamon, cardamom, star anise and vanilla bean pod (scrape the seeds out to toss through but leave the whole pod in too). Lightly toss to combine.
  • Drizzle over the honey.
  • Cook for 30–35 minutes. Until the fruit is soft and golden.
  • Serve hot with mascarpone, yogurt or we love Japanese Style Soufflé Cheesecake.
