James & The Giant Peach

"But the peach ... ah, yes ... the peach was a soft, stealthy traveller, making no noise at all as it floated along. And several times during that long silent night ride high up over the middle of the ocean in the moonlight, James and his friends saw things that no one had ever seen before."
-Roald Dahl, James and the Giant Peach

James and the Giant Peach, released in 1961, tells the tale of a young boy- James Trotter- who escapes from his abusive aunt in a magic peach. He travels away from his problems with his new friends Grasshopper, Ladybug, Spider and Centipede.

This recipe is inspired by the Peach that grew from those Magic Beans... 

 You will need:
1 ripe peach
35g unsalted butter
20g plain flour
20g brown sugar (+ some for sprinkling)
Ice Cream, Honey, Cream, Crème fraîche or a topping of your choice
              Oven at 180°

Cut the peach in half and remove the stone.
  Sprinkle some sugar inside the peaches dip, adding 5g of butter into each half.

 Place these into the oven whilst you make the crumble topping. This is the same crumble topping found on apple or rhubarb crumble- so its super easy to make.

Crumble together, using your fingers, the flour and remaining cubes of butter.

  Once you've done this, you should be left with something that resembles breadcrumbs.  

The next step is tor stir in the brown sugar. Try to make sure it is even across the mixture.
 Once this is done, grab the peaches back from the oven and sprinkle the crumble mix over the butter and sugar mixture.

 I recommend piling the topping especially high, so the peaches are super Gloriumptious.

 Place in the oven for 20 minutes, whilst you help with the washing up!

Then remove and enjoy with Ice Cream, Honey, Cream, Crème fraîche or all the above!!


Please remember if you are in the kitchen under the age of 13, ask Mum or Dad for some help, especially when using knives or the oven!

"And James Henry Trotter, who once, if you remember, had been the saddest and loneliest boy that you could find, now had all the friends and playmates in the world."
-Roald Dahl, James and the Giant Peach

  1. This looks delicious, a feast fit for a King!

  2. This legalization of medical marijuana as well as recreational marijuana for the masses is just an excuse for hardcore dopers to think they can smoke pot and be dumbasses.
