again a breakfast dish. i so love to celebrate the weekend with either a good dinner or an elaborate breakfast (mostly, though, it's both). and although there in fact are some good breakfast places in zurich (and i've just heard about a new one i am really keen on trying out) - as it goes the best breakfast seems to always be at home.
these halved, stuffed (with an oats-nuts mixture) and grilled peaches are not that unhealthy, either. they look cute, and a refreshing and welcome alternative (especially if you happen to combine it with things like 'butter popovers' and 'cinnamon pull-apart bread'... sighs. stay tuned for these).
2 peaches, halved, pitted and slightly hollowed
1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup cold butter, in chunks
1/4 cup brown sugar
4 tbsp. coconut
1 tsp. vanilla (ground or scraped from a bean)
heat the oven to 220 degrees F. half and pit the peaches, and hollow them a little with a sharp spoon, to make room for the crumble mixture. combine all the dry ingredients, and then knead in the cold butter. shape little balls and place them on the peach halves. place the peaches in a heat proof shape, put in the oven and grill the peaches for about 20 minutes, or until they are golden and pretty. serve hot, with a blob of natural greek (i.e. fat, with lots of cream) yogurt.
