Baked Peach with Saffron is a delicate and exotic dessert for the entire family.
Happy Tuesday, everyone. Today, I will help you all start your new week after a long weekend on a sweet note by sharing this beautiful dessert.
How did I come up with the recipe for Baked Peach With Saffron?
As a Recipe Developer, I go through many twists and turns while developing a recipe.
Sometimes it turns excellent at first, and at times, I have to keep changing the ingredients and its measurements until it is Perfect.
Today’s recipe is one of those which turned Perfect on the very first try. I am very excited about this recipe because I loved how it turned out.
Here I have baked peaches with Saffron. The unique exotic flavor of this dessert comes from Saffron.
It is one of the spices that is widely in use throughout India during festive occasions. This sweetly aromatic spice, when added to any food, makes that food Special.
How did I make this recipe?
Making this recipe is simple. I started with washing the peach and cut it in half. I removed the stone and prick the fruit with a fork.
Next, I mix saffron with water and added it to the peach pieces. Follow it by baking it for 15 minutes at 350 degrees temperature.
Once that’s done, sprinkle the baked peach pieces with saffron sugar and bake it for another 15 minutes.
When that is done, take them out and let them cool down. In the final step, top it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and the juices of the baked peach pieces and serve.
Saffron is considered to be the most expensive spice in the world. It is obtained from the stigmas of Crocus sativus, also known as Rose of Saffron.
The saffron flower blooms at dawn, and the saffron stigma withers out rapidly and loses its taste and color. Hence, picking them between dawn till 10 am becomes important.
Saffron is cultivated from Spain in the west to India in the east. Arab, Persian, Indian, European, and Turkish cuisines make use of this delicate spice.
Just a pinch of this beautiful spice creates wonders for any recipe, and it has done here too. Serve this exotic and delicious dessert for your family, and I am sure they would ask for more.

Baked Peaches with Saffron
- 1 large Peach
- 1/2 tsp Saffron Strand (1/4 teaspoon for 1st part of baking, 1/4 teaspoon for second part of baking)
- 1 tsp Sugar
- 1 tsp Milk
- 2 scoops of Vanilla Ice Cream
How To Make It:
Start by preheating the oven 350 F.
Wash and cut the peach in a half. Remove the pit. Set them pit side facing up in a baking dish. Prick the peaches with fork three to four times. Pierce only the side which is facing up.
Mix 1/4 teaspoon saffron with 1 teaspoon lukewarm milk. Add it on to the pricked side of the peach. Let the milk get soaked into the peach.
Bake this peach for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, mix 1 teaspoon sugar with the remaining saffron. Crush it a bit to release the flavor and aroma of saffron into the sugar.
After 15 minutes, take the baking dish out and sprinkle the sugar onto both peaches, roughly dividing 1/2 teaspoon on each peach piece. Add the sugar on the pricked side of the peach. Bake it for another 15 minutes.
Once done, get the peaches out and let it rest for few minutes. Then scoop a bit of liquid from baked peaches for garnish.
In a serving dish, place the baked peach and top it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Garnish it with the liquid collected from the baked peaches and serve immediately.
