  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 190°C (170°C fan-forced). In a small frying pan over medium heat, add butter and swirl to melt. Continue to swirl in pan for 2 mins or until butter is light golden brown. Set aside to cool slightly.
  2. Step 2

    Brush six ¾-cup (185ml) ramekins, about 9cm wide and 5cm tall, with 1 tbs browned butter. Dust with 1 tbs sugar to coat. Divide the peach and nectarine evenly among prepared ramekins. Place the ramekins on a baking tray.
  3. Step 3

    In a large bowl, whisk the remaining browned butter, remaining sugar, cream, eggs, egg yolks and flour until well combined. Gently pour custard over the fruit in the ramekins.
  4. Step 4

    Bake for 25-30 mins or until the custard is almost set in centre. Set aside for 5 mins to allow custard to thicken. Dust with icing sugar. Top with gelato or ice cream and serve warm.
