Had these with vanilla ice cream. Gorgeous.

Roughly, how many does this serve?

I used a lasagne tin and a single layer of plums (probably closer to 800 or 900 g) from trees in my garden. I also pitted the plums before I baked them. I used orange juice, since I didn't have fresh oranges, and cinnamon sticks instead of star anise. Served it with cold custard. It was lovely - my husband agreed even though he has bad memories of stewed fruit from his childhood. Next time I want to try it with star anise and fresh oranges.

Made this recipe using mostly greengages and a few victoria plums and I used cinammon sticks instead of star anise as well. Served it with vanilla ice cream. It was gorgeous but very rich so you dont need a big bowl full. My hubby actually thought there was alcohol in it and was surprised when I told him there wasn't. I will definately make this recipe again.

Delicious! So easy and very tasty. Used half honey and half maple syrup and served with vanilla ice-cream. Will definately make again!

Enjoy this even without the star anise. Have cooked it frequently.

Really unusual flavour, the star anise is really interesting. Lovely with greek yogurt.
