Adoring Dolcetti!

There’s still an abundance of peaches out there and this is a great way to use them up. In fact a whole platter of these is a great thing to bring to a party, trust me I’ve done it! You can grill them ahead of time either outdoors, or like I did here right here, on my indoor grill.
Cut them in half, scoop out the pit, grill face down, just till you get some grill marks on.
Put a dollop of mascarpone, chopped pistachio’s, and a good drizzle of honey!

Do you have any banana’s that are starting to look sad? No problem! Wrap them in some tin foil and throw them on the grill, either inside or out.
Let them cook till the skin gets brown and soft in the center, about 20 min’s.
In a small sauce pan melt some butter, about 2 Tbl. Now add 1/2 cup of toasted and chopped hazelnuts, a squeeze of lemon juice, and a few Tbl. of light corn syrup.
Pour the warm sauce over your warm banana’s with a scoop of vanilla ice cream sprinkled with cinnamon!

Both of these desserts are very quick and so, so, easy to make!! They taste very decadent! and your family and friends will adore you for serving these!

Have a nice weekend, and Buon Appetito!

  1. What a sweet post!!! I love the idea of roasted bananas… however I must say I usually eat them a bit green… I don’t why!! So, I never have bananas that are too ripe… 🙁

  2. You’re killin’ me here Marie! Mmmm-mmm-mmm is all I can say!

  3. I bought some peaches today, thanks for the grilling tip, oh yeah honey 🙂

  4. Marie, I think my family and friends would never leave my home again!!. Buon Appetito!. Kathy

  5. Oh, Marie, that honey sauce looks divine. I love how grilled fruit is so elegant yet simple. I’m with you on the mascarpone and pistachios. Though I also like ricotta, lemon, and blueberries too.

  6. Oh, I love the looks of that peach, Marie. It looks like a little heart — so cunning! And what a simple, but beautifully satisfying dessert idea. Hazelnuts with banana? I’m all over it — Bella!

  7. Marie,
    I made grilled peaches for the first time this summer, and they were delish!
    I love the addition of pistachios and mascarpone, makes them a low fat dessert! (ha!).

  8. I love bananaas and this dessert with the chopped hazelnuts is exciting me. Ok that sounded weird, but it does.

  9. Oh my word, your posts always delight and impress me! In addition to this looking beautiful, the flavor combos are just outstanding. I love pistachios and honey, and now I’ll try them with the added goodness of grilled peaches (haven’t had one yet this season) and heavenly mascarpone! *Sigh*

  10. What lovely, elegant and yet, simple desserts! I love them both. My mouth is watering!

  11. Ohhhhh That sounds soooooo yummy and not on my diet!!!

  12. OMG!! The peaches & bananas are truly making a wonderful statement in yummy goodness!!!


  13. That looks delicious. I wish I was that talented!

  14. This looks great Marie! Wouldn’t figs be wonderful too? (i’m a fig freak haha)
    Big hug!

  15. Roasted peaches and bananas only gain sweetness by roasting. I am headed to the farmers market this morning so peaches at least may be on this weeks menu….I was going to say bananas don’t grow here in Canada (so not available at the farmers market)but I remembered there is a guy who grows them in the southern tip of the Okanagan and sells them at a fruit stand there.Go figure:D

  16. Dear Marie look absolutely yummy and delciious!!! Love peaches and your pictures are to eat them!!! xGloria

  17. Hi Marie – now don’t those look great? I like the idea of cooked/grilled fruit for dessert, much prefer it to cake.
    Peaches and Bananas YAY! And I can’t decide which one I like better…

  18. I loove peaches, and when they’re cooked up with yummy ingredients like these, their delicious flavor is further enhanced :).

    Thanks for the sweet comment on my blog!

  19. wow, how simple is this and yet so stunning!!!!! Very clever ideas you have here!!!

  20. I’m always looking for simple dessert recipes. And this one looks like a winner. Thanks!

  21. Scrumptious! I tried a similar way with loquats (nespole in Italian). I’ll have to give a try with peaches and bananas!!! Great idea!

  22. Oooooooooooh Marie…another winner! I love peaches; am envious you still getting them. Grilling fruit does some magic on them; adding mascarpone & pisatchios, my fave nut, just makes it better & better! Beautiful first pic too…YUM!!

  23. We just bought a great indoor grill pan we had been eying for awhile. Now we are grilling everything in sight. So I think the peaches languishing in tr fruit basket now know their destiny!

  24. my o my!! Those peaches are just too YUM, I have died and gone to heaven:)

  25. Oh, these are just decadent!

  26. an easy dessert but certainly delicious. what a brilliant idea to save some ‘sad’ bananas.

  27. Beautiful Marie,
    I have a very similar grilled peach recipe that I LOVE. What a perfect treat!

  28. HI! Marie
    this recipe is very delicious
    kisses for you dear

  29. Here’s the thing, it is not so much what you make but the way you take the photograph and the lighting that drives us insanely hungry.

  30. Marie, i cant decide which one i would prefer more, both seem so amazing !

  31. Both of these are totally new to me. Grilled banana, how interesting. I’ve had deep fried banana’s with coconut ice-cream.

    Thanks for making all of us hungry and drool once again!


  32. What a great idea! We are always getting bags of peaches from my husbands patient’s and now this gives me a great idea on how to use some. Lovely pics!

  33. Simple and good. My kind of food. 🙂 Yum!!

  34. i made a version of this today with toasted almonds and creme fraiche – it was heavenly…

    THANK YOU!!!
