Cooked Fruit is such an easy and delicious dessert.
But when you add Prosecco, a drizzle of honey and a couple of special spices, this dessert is taken to another level entirely!
Which fruit to select to make Cooked Fruit?
The best part about this simple dessert is that you can choose such a wide variety of fruit. I had never cooked grapes before testing this recipe but what a revelation! Roasted grapes are juicy and the flavor is intensely sweet. Definitely my favorite!
Surprisingly, summer stone fruit are a great choice for cooking. Choose fruit that is not over ripe for best results.

How to make this dessert.
As much as I love cooking, I also love easy recipes that come together quickly. This dessert is just that.
- Place prepared fruit into baking pan and drizzle with honey.
- Cook for 10 minutes.
- Turn fruit over and cook for another 10 minutes
- Add Prosecco and cook until tender.
That's all there is to it. Let your dessert cook while you prepare dinner. So easy!
What I love is that leftover cooked fruit is a healthy snack when the midnight munchies hits. And in the morning, dessert leftovers become a quick and nutritious breakfast when served with yogurt and granola.
Cooked fruit is one of those easy and quick recipes that anyone can make. If you can cut fruit and turn on an oven, you can make this recipe!
While the oven is on, why not double the recipe so that you have plenty of leftovers.

really good, added a splash of homemade sloe vodka as only had average white wine to hand. cold with ice cream it was a total joy. Thank you.
What a great idea, Jeanette! Prosecco was what I had on hand but sloe vodka sounds like a brilliant substitute.

I certainly am enjoying all the summer fruit here in Adelaide and this recipe sounds like a good one to try! Who would have thought of roasting grapes- I must give this a try! BTW, roasting bananas might also be good!
Fran, roasted grapes are great and you are in the right place for that! Good thought about bananas.
After roasting could the fruit become a pie filling?
I've never done that but I think it could. I'd probably sprinkle the base of the pie with ground almonds or semolina to soak up the juices so the crust doesn't get soggy. Thickening the juices with cornstarch (cornflour) would be a good idea too.

I often have leftover prosecco (I know, crazy, right?) and this would be a great way to use it. Also, it might keep me away from cakes, cookies and all those sweets I should not be eating!
Actually, Linda, this is why this recipe uses Prosecco...it was leftover!
My kind of meal: any time of day ! Thank you dear Marcellina !
Yes, I agree totally!
This is really lovely! Instead of honey, could I add some ruby port? Thanks!
Oh Mimi! That would be lovely!
