Although fresh plums often taste a bit tart when eaten fresh, this recipe for baked plums definitely solves that problem! This plum dish was created at Lookout Point as a breakfast appetizer, however, it certainly works well as a tasty dessert to finish a nice dinner. This recipe can be adapted for any number of persons: use one plum per person and adapt the rest of the recipe.
Serves 8 people
8 ripe plums
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup coarsely chopped pecans
Creme Fraiche (recipe also located in the 8 Broads Cookbook)
1 cup sour cream
1/4 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Spray the bottom of an 8 x 8 inch baking dish with non-stick spray. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Slice and remove seed from each plum. Do not peel. Place sliced plums in the baking dish. Sprinkle the brown sugar over the plums, then top with nuts.
Bake for 20-25 minutes until the plums soften, without becoming “mushy”.
To serve, spoon into individual small dishes. Top with a dollop of creme fraiche. To make the creme fraiche, stir all ingredients together.
