Here i am finally with the 100th recipe post! After almost a week of contemplation on what special dish to post for this occasion, and various inputs from followers, i was even thoroughly confused! Although i have like a 100 recipes in draft, couldn’t jus pick one. And then my dearest hubs who is also the better half of this blog surprised me by taking me on a baking ingredients tour in the supermarket right after work on a Thursday evening (for almost two hours!) and like that wasn’t shocking enough, made an amazing melt-in-the-mouth fruit compote right from scratch, only and only for celebrating this 100th post (now i donno where this guy was on our first anniversary)! So here’s the recipe from Brat’s Kitchen for fruit compote in the words of the man himself..

Baked Fruit Compote Recipe

Ingredients

Apples and Bananas -2 of each
Strawberries, Raspberries, Peaches and Pear – a small cup of each

Orange Juice – 1/2 cup

Sugar – 1/2 cup
Baking Flour (Self-raising/all-purpose) – 1/2 cup
Baking Soda – a pinch
Unsalted Butter – 2 tbsp
Cinnamon Powder – 2 tsp
Double Cream – 1/2 cup
Lemon/Orange Zest – 1/2 tsp each

Vanilla Essence – 2 tsp
Food coloring – few drops of red

Almonds – 1/4 cup (peeled and sliced)

Ice cream – 2 scoops
Rainbow Sprinkles, Caramel Sauce and Jellies

Method
Peel and cut apples into 1 inch cubes

Cut all other fruits into a similar size
Boil the fruits with the orange juice and a cup water for about 8 to 10 minutes

While boiling add the orange zest and lemon zest

Add sugar, a tsp of vanilla essence and cinammon powder
Do not overcook, drain the fruits and keep it in a bowl
Mix 1/2 cup water with the baking powder, soda and food coloring
Mix the fruits with this and add thick cream and another tsp of vanilla essence
Grease a baking dish with butter amd evenly spread the fruits mix on it.
Sprinkle some sugar on top and garnish it with the almonds.
Bake for 25 to 30 minutes
Let it cool and set for 10 minutes
Dust a tsp of cinnamon powder again
Add a scoop of icecream (i have used Srawberry Cheesecake flavor)
Be generous with the rainbow sprinkles and caramel sauce on top!!

And I always thought its virtually impossible to get this high without the wine!
