Broiled Apricots with Ginger Whipped Cream

Dessert doesn't need to be really sweet to seem indulgent. Broiling apricots with a touch of brown sugar intensifies the fruit's flavor without adding too many calories.

Broiled Apricots with Ginger Whipped Cream

Source: Everyday Food, July/August 2008


  • 1 tablespoon finely grated fresh ginger
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 8 apricots (about 1 pound), halved and pitted
  • 4 teaspoons light-brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cardamom


  1. Heat broiler to high, with rack set 4 inches from heat. Squeeze juice from grated ginger into a large bowl (you should get about 1 teaspoon juice); discard pulp. Add cream and granulated sugar. Whip until soft peaks form; refrigerate.

  2. Place apricots, cut side up, on a rimmed baking sheet. Dividing evenly, top with brown sugar, butter, and cardamom. Broil until apricots just begin to char, 2 to 5 minutes. Top apricots with whipped cream, and serve immediately.

    This was delicious! Broiling the apricots really concentrated and intensified the flavor. I made it on a busy weeknight, so I substituted light Cool Whip for the fancy whipped cream, but it was still amazing.
