Hmm.. I have a confession to make. Even though I have uploaded a number of plum recipes, I am not a big fan of raw plums. But once cooked, I am all over them! You can’t keep me away from them, no matter. I know, I know, I am supposed to love them unconditionally, raw or cooked, just like our children but what can I do? Some things are just better cooked. This recipe for making poached plums results in the most buttery delicious plums. Please, please give it a go! It’s a fantastic dish and can go with breakast pancakes, french toasts, ice creams and cakes.
- 4 plums halved (do not remove the pits)
- 150 ml water
- 1 tbsp golden caster sugar
- 1 pinch cinnamon optional
Pour the water in the pan.
Lay the plums with cut side up, in a single layer. Pour sugar on top of the plums and set aside for 15-20 minutes.
Heat the oven to 230 degrees celsius.
Put the pan with plums in the oven and bake for 20 minutes.
Remove from the over and serve hot with pancakes or cold with ice creams.
