Easy Roasted Fruit Recipe

how to roast fruit

Fresh fruit is such a treat to enjoy, especially for a snack or at dessert time. One of my favorite ways to prepare fresh fruit is by roasting it along with a bit of cinnamon and brown sugar, then enjoyed warm all by itself or served over greek yogurt, ice cream or pound cake, or eaten alone with maybe a dollop of whipped cream. It is so simple, but boy is it ever so delicious! Not only is it delicious, but roasting (baking) deepens the flavors of fruits and vegetables, not to mention the added perk of wonderful aromas wafting throughout your home too. A much better fragrance than any air freshener you can buy, that’s for sure.
