Stewed Fruit Dessert!

A dessert that I've used twice in two days is this Jamie Oliver stewed plum and peach malarky that is delissssh. Serve it with vanilla ice cream with the fruit still warm and bam, party.
Again, this is a variation with Jamie's depending on the ripeness of the fruit I could get or what I discovered I thought tasted better.

Serves 5
15 peaches
6 plums (I found them a bit bitter)
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbsp golden caster sugar
1 orange
sprinkle of cinnamon (I found it hard to find a stick of cinnamon)
1 tub of fab vanilla ice cream

*Halve and stone the fruits and put them into a large roasting tray.

*Drizzle over the vanilla and caster sugar.
*Add the zest from half an orange and squeeze in all the juice.
*Add the cinnamon and place on the bottom shelf.
*Leave for 15 minutes or until the fruits are all soft and juicy.
*Serve with vanilla ice cream and tuck in.
Yesterday's version

Again, enjoy! This dish is dead handy as you can pop it in the oven during dinner and it'll be ready in time for dessert. Mmmm....
