Ingredients & Equipment Used In This Recipe
While most ingredients can be bought in grocery stores, for your convenience, any specialized or notable ingredients (and equipment) needed for this recipe have been listed below and linked to Amazon or other stores if available online.
It does not include staple ingredients such as oil, salt, and pepper, as you’re likely to have those in your kitchen already. The complete list of ingredients with measurements is found in the recipe card.
- Fresh Produce – Peaches
- Dairy – Heavy Whipping Cream (Double Cream)
- Balsamic Vinegar
- Ground Cinnamon
- Pure Maple Syrup – buy the good, 100% stuff, anything less is just made up of flavorings and corn syrup.
Recipes on The Purple Pumpkin Blog use both cup measurements and/or weighted measurements. American cups and kitchen food scales are handy pieces of equipment to have in your kitchen as it means you’ll be able to make all of the different recipes on my blog. I try to give American, imperial, and metric measurements in my recipes. Please note, you can mix cup measurements with weighted measurements, but never mix imperial (pounds, ounces, pints, etc.,) with metric (kilograms, grams, litres, etc.,).

- Pick peaches that are just ripe. Unripe peaches will yield poor flavor results (and it’s difficult to remove the stone from the fruit), and overripe fruit will turn mushy, which we definitely don’t want!

- 4 large peaches, cut in half, pits removed
- 2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
- 2 tsp ground cinnamon (+ more for garnish)
- 2½ Tbsp real maple syrup, divided
- ½ cup heavy whipping cream
- Pre-heat oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas 4. Line a large, rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or a nonstick baking sheet.
- Arrange peach halves on the baking sheet and spread the balsamic vinegar over the exposed surface with a pastry brush. Sprinkle the ground cinnamon on top, divided evenly between the peach halves.
- Drizzle two tablespoons of maple syrup on top, using the pastry brush to cover the entire surface of each peach half.
- Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the peaches are tender and warmed through.
- While the peaches are baking, pour the heavy cream into a medium mixing bowl and beat until fluffy. Add the remaining maple syrup and continue beating until well combined.
- Remove the peaches from the oven and serve warm topped with a dollop of the maple whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon, if desired. Enjoy!
