  • Cooking: 10 minutes
  • Serves: 4

Ingredients:

  • 4 bought waffles
  • 20g butter
  • 2 peaches, pitted and sliced
  • 4 plums, pitted and sliced
  • 1tbsp caster sugar
  • 100ml double cream

Chocolate Sauce:

  • 50g dark chocolate, broken into pieces
  • 10g butter
  • 1tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1tbsp cornflour
  • 100ml milk
  • 1tbsp caster sugar

Method

  1. First of all, make the chocolate sauce.
  2. Put all the ingredients into a non-stick saucepan and heat gently, stirring constantly with a silicone whisk or wooden spoon until smooth and thickened. Set aside, stirring occasionally.
  3. Following pack instructions, warm the waffles.
  4. Melt the butter in a large frying pan and add the peach and plum slices, cooking over a high heat for 1-2 minutes.
  5. Sprinkle in the caster sugar and cook for a further 40-60 seconds or so, until the fruit looks lightly caramelised.
  6. Whip the cream in a chilled bowl until it holds its shape. Serve with the waffles, fruit and chocolate sauce. Sprinkle with a little extra cocoa powder, if you like. 

Cook’s tips: Make this recipe with pancakes instead of waffles, and use canned squirty cream instead of whipping it yourself – kids love it, and it’s quick and easy!
