Golden Peach


This is one of the recipe which i got inspired from MasterChef ( a television show in UK). This was some special dessert with lots of technical skills, so i din't even reach somewhere near to that recipe. The taste was good, but i couldn't get the proper shape, still i made up my mind to post this recipe to share one of my trial and error recipe. I even tried hard to get some good looking pictures but this was the maximum i could get, i know it dosen't look that good.
Any way coming to the recipe, Golden Peach is nothing but, poaches peach filled with vanilla ice cream and resting in sugar snap biscuits, finally enclosed with spun sugar baskets, although it din't look like a basket just because of a tiny mistake.
I'll explain the recipe step by step starting from sugar snap biscuits, this was quite easy.
Sugar Snap Biscuits:
Caster Sugar- 100 g
Butter-100 g
Goldklare sirup or Golden Syrup- 100 g
Plain Flour- 90g
Method:
 Cream the butter in a large bowl until it looks pale. Then add the sugar and beat well, then add the sifted flour and mix well. Heat the golden syrup in a pan until it goes runny, let it cool down for a while. Add the warm syrup to the Butter mixture and mix well. Cover the bowl with a cling film and refrigerate for 4 hours.
Preheat the oven to 180 degree celsius. Take a small ball of the mixture, flatten it slightly. Place it in a greased and lined baking sheet. Leave minimum of 5 cm between each round as it spreads a lot. Bake it in the preheated oven for 10 to 15 minutes or until it's golden brown and lots of holes on top.
Meanwhile grease the bottom of 4 ramekins or glass bowl with butter. As soon as you take it out from the oven, immediately flip it on top of the ramekins and press the sides then carefully remove the baking paper.
Let it cool down completely. Then gently lift the biscuits off from the ramekins. Store it in a air tight container.

Spun Sugar:
This is like one of my dream  ever since i saw James Martin( Celebrity Chef)  doing this in Ready Steady Cook( a television show in UK). He made it look so easy everytime when he used to that in Readsteady Cook in less than 5 minutes. So I tried making that and after a few struggle i got something. To view the step by step clear instructions on how to make this  spun sugar click here.
Ingredients:
Caster Sugar- 100 g
Boiling water- 100 ml
Lemon juice-1/2 tsp
Method:
Combine all the ingredients together in a clean saucepan, heat in low heat and keep stirring until all the sugar is dissolved completely. Now start boiling in medium to high heat, while boiling keep brushing the sides of the pan to avoid crystallisation of sugar. The syrup will start boiling, then it will slowly reach a caramel colour. Switch off the flame when it's golden in colour. Don't let it too dark which will give a very bitter taste.
Now to get basket grease a laddle or ramekins. When the syrup is cooled down for about 1 minute, quickly lift it with a spoon and rapidly coat the back of the laddle moving the spoon forwards and backwards. Let it cool down for 30 seconds and gently remove it off from the laddle. If you leave the caramel even 1 minute longer you can't get that.

To Assemble The Golden Peach:
Serves 1
Ingredients:
Peach-1
Sugar Snap Biscuits- 1
Spun sugar Basket-1
Vanilla Ice cream- 1
Few Fresh Fruits To Serve
Method:
First poach the peach in plain water or with vanilla pod for 15 minutes. Let the peach cool down completely. Then peel them and split them into half and remove the seed in the middle. To serve in a serving plate, place the sugar snap biscuit and on top of it place 1 half of the peach, then a scoop of vanilla ice cream top it with the other half of peach. Finally place the spun sugar on top it and serve with some fresh seasonal fruits.
Serve it immediately before the ice cream melts.
This recipe goes to the event Sizzling Summer Contest.

These turned out really good! The spun sugar is so pretty! I bet they were fun to make.

In response to your question - fish isn't allowed because it is more of a main dish - but if you served something on the side with it that had vegetables in it that would be good.
