Baked Plums

Not sure I an actually call this a recipe it's so simple! We have had a glut of very nice plums in our organic vegetable box (from Abel & Cole who I can heartily recommend) in the last few weeks so came up with this to use them up.

Serves 2
6-8 plums cut into quarters and destoned
2 tablespoons of vanilla sugar (I always have a jar of sugar with an old or scraped vanilla pod in it)
splash or two of fruit juice

Bake in a moderate oven for 30 mins until the plums have softened and the juice has gone all syrupy. I tend to make this when I have the oven on for something else too save energy. Yummy served with natural yoghurt or vanilla ice cream. Works just as well with rhubarb (add a little grated ginger if you like).


  1. Hi Alan - I love plums. This sounds yummy. The other day I made Hungarian prune lekvar (I grew up eating it), and I love it on toast. So many yummy things to make and eat.

    I love this blog.

    Happy Eating :-)

  2. To boost the Autumnal tastes of the plums I added a cinnamon stick and a piece of star anise.
