Method

  1. Heat oven to 190C/fan 170/gas 5. Halve the plums and arrange in a snug layer in one large or 4-6 individual shallow, ovenproof dishes. Sprinkle over the sugar and squeeze over all the orange juice. Press a sheet of baking parchment down over the plums and bake for 20-25 mins, until they start to soften.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the butter with the syrup or honey in a pan. Remove from the heat and stir in the oats until they are evenly coated. Remove parchment, roughly spoon oats over the plums, then return to the oven for a further 10 mins, until the topping is crisp and golden and the plums are tender. Serve warm with crème fraîche or ice cream if you are feeling indulgent, or fromage frais or low-fat yogurt if not.

Love this recipe as do all my friends and family. Great to make at this time of year when the red/purple plums are cheap and plentiful.

Tried this last night with frozen plums from last year but it worked just as well. Very nice will do again.

Deliciously simple. Everyone loved this. When I added the topping, I did cook it longer, about 20 minutes, to get the topping nice and crunchy.

When recipe is for 4-6 people, what about calories then? is the given calorie amount for 1/4 or 1/6 of whole?

I liked this very much! I doubled the quantity of the topping and we (children included!) love it! I am making it again for my mother-in-law this afternoon.

Not everso keen on this, the topping was a bit sparse but that was a bonus as I didn't think it was very nice but the plum base was delicious.
