-1kg/2.2lbs can of Del Monte peach slices in grape juice

-50g/1.6oz double cream

1: Mix the flour and sugar.

4: Pour 2/3 or 3/4 of the mass into a baking tray and spread evenly.

5: Put in the oven at 200C/390F until the base is somewhat firm.

6: Open the can of peach slices. Pour the grape juice into a frying pan. Layer the slices on the base.

7: Form the border around and slightly over the top of the peach slices.

8: Heat the juice until it’s simmering and slowly stir in the cream, cinnamon and ginger.

9: Continue cooking and stirring until the sauce is thick.
