5 fruity desserts to celebrate the season
Berries, stonefruits and cherries are in season now. We make the most of them in these hard-to-resist treats
Still special occasion but not too heavy after a meal, this is a simple, yet stunning dessert. Roasting the fruit brings out its natural sweetness, and it is delicious drizzled with syrupy red wine.
Kathy Paterson says this is really more of a cake but it's one she likes to serve as a pudding. You can swap the fruit around, using any of the stonefruits, such as nectarines, peaches or plums.
Make the most of the short cherry season with this easy dessert that uses store-bought pastry. These tarts are delicious served warm with a big scoop of icecream.
Strawberries and boysenberries flavour this semifreddo and give it its vibrant colour. Yoghurt adds a bit of tang. A great dessert for this time of the year when berries are still abundant, but you could use frozen ones if necessary. Semifreddo doesn't need churning so is a good choice if you don't own an icecream machine.
Everybody loves blueberries and nectarines and the frangipane filling makes this tart extra special. Serve with icecream or cream on the side.
