An indulgent, comforting way to enjoy the season's sweetest peaches – caramelised in brown sugar and butter and served on crisp, golden brioche infused with cinnamon, vanilla and orange. Finish off this easy summer dessert with a dollop of rich, rum-spiked cream.

Preheat the oven to gas 1/4, 110°C, fan 90°C. For the brioche, whisk the eggs, milk, vanilla essence, sugar, cinnamon and orange zest 
in a bowl. Soak the brioche slices; remove.

Heat half the oil in a frying pan. Working in batches, fry half the brioche until golden on both sides. Transfer to a baking sheet and keep warm in the oven. Repeat with the remaining oil and brioche.

Sprinkle the peach flesh with the caster sugar. Melt half the butter in a frying pan. Add the peaches, cut-side down, and cook over a medium heat for 3-4 minutes, until golden. Turn over, add the remaining butter and cook for 3-4 minutes more.

Meanwhile, mix the rum, icing sugar and mascarpone in a bowl. Divide the brioche and peaches between plates. Serve with the rum-spiked mascarpone and an extra dusting of cinnamon.
