    Brown sugar plums with soured cream

    This simple weeknight dessert is delicious hot or cold.

    • Preparation time: 5 minutes
    • Cooking time: 25 minutes
    • Total time: 30 minutes 30 minutes

    Serves: 4


    • 8 essential Waitrose English Plums, halved and stoned
    • 2 tbsp light brown muscovado sugar
    • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
    • 300ml essential Waitrose Soured Cream
    • 2 tbsp demerara sugar


    1. Heat the oven to 220c, gas mark 7. Arrange the plums in the base of a gratin dish to make a tight fitting single layer. Mix together the brown sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle over the plums. Bake for 20–25 minutes until tender and golden.
    2. Spoon the soured cream over the top and sprinkle with the demerara sugar. For a crunchier sugar topping, you could place the dish under a hot grill until the sugar melts, but it’s not essential. Serve with shortbread biscuits.
