Ingredients

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Mix the sugar with 2 tbsp water in a baking dish, add the star anise, then pop in the plums, cut-side down. They should fit quite snugly. Dot with the butter. Roast for about 5 mins until the plums are starting to soften on the bottom, then turn them over. Roast for another 5 mins or until tender – this will depend on how ripe your fruit is.

  • STEP 2

    Roughly crush the Hobnobs, then spoon a little on top of each plum half. Return to the oven for a few mins more until the biscuit topping takes on a dark gold colour. Serve the plums and their scented, syrupy juices with custard or ice cream.

RECIPE TIPS
PREFER PIE?

Spice plum and apple tuck: Cut 2 large Bramley apples into large chunks and cook with the plums in a pie dish, sprinkling with a little more butter and sugar. Once the fruit is soft, unroll a pack of ready-to-use shortcrust pastry over the top and tuck the edges in. Cut a few slashes in the top, sprinkle with a little more sugar and bake for 20 mins until golden.
