Lunch at Mama’s, Roast Vanilla Plums
February 17, 2011
So for pudding another River Cottage recipe, my Mum does love Hugh!
See here for details.
About 12 plums
2 vanilla pods
About 60g caster sugar
4 thick slices crusty white bread
Preheat the oven to 190C.
Halve the plums, remove their stones, then arrange cut side up in a baking dish. Snip each vanilla pod into pieces about 1cm long, then place a piece in the hollow of each plum, along with a tiny scrap of butter and a teaspoon of sugar.
Roast for about 20 minutes, or until they are tender and the syrupy juices are running.
Toast the bread and spread generously with butter. Spoon the plums and their hot, sticky juices on to the toast, Mum served with vanilla cream…
