    Roast plums with walnut cream

    • Vegetarian
    • Gluten Free
    • Preparation time: 10 minutes, plus cooling
    • Cooking time: 25 minutes
    • Total time: 35 minutes, plus cooling

    Serves: 4-6


    8 plums, halved
    50g caster sugar
    2 pinches ground cinnamon
    75ml red wine
    200ml double cream
    1½ tbsp clear honey
    50g walnuts, toasted and very finely chopped 


    1. Preheat the oven to 180˚C, gas mark 4. Put the plums in a small roasting tin, cut-side up – you want them to fit snugly. Sprinkle with the sugar and cinnamon, then pour the red wine around them. Cook for 15-25 minutes, depending on ripeness, until soft but not collapsing. If the juices are watery, set the plums aside and bubble the juices on the stove so they turn a bit syrupy, then pour back over the fruit. Leave to cool to room temperature.

    2. Whisk the cream until it just forms a ribbon on the surface. Gently fold in the honey and walnuts. Serve the plums with some of their juices and a blob of the walnut cream alongside. LH
