Peaches with Creme Fraiche, Brown Sugar, Cinnamon and Nutmeg

August 21, 2009
Author Notes

This was inspired by the recipe headnote for a contest winner: a delicious peach cake by Savour, who recalled how her mother often served her cut-up peaches with milk, sugar and nutmeg for breakfast as a child. I opted for a dollop of crème fraîche in place of the milk, used brown sugar instead of white and snuck some cinnamon in alongside the nutmeg. If you don't have crème fraîche, just use whatever is in your fridge -- yogurt, cream, mascarpone, even ricotta. —Merrill Stubbs
