A quickly prepared light snack, that everyone in the family will love. You can use really ripe plums in this recipe, so it's ideal if you have a glut of fruit to use up, hence is alternative name: Plum Castaways.
The plum is an almost forgotten English fruit that was once grown in abundance across the orchards of southern England. Sadly now most of our orchards have been ploughed-up for cereal crops and commercially grown plums are mainly imported from abroad.
Fortunately, plums are now making a comeback in the UK and you will find that many old English gardens still have a plum tree growing somewhere - usually the old favourite the 'Victoria Plum' one of the best plums for both eating and cooking.
Serve warm from the oven as they are or with a dollop of thick cream or with a little Bird's Dream Topping.
Ideal as a light snack or a light pudding course after a meal. A word of warning however, this snack is so delicious you will probably want to bake another batch as soon you have eaten them!
