Plums (1-2 plums per person)
100grams Almonds (chopped)
Vanilla pod or essence
1 tub 250g Mascapone
2 tablespoons icing sugar (or 2 taste)
1 -2 teaspoons milk or cream
fresh plums cut and sprinlked with almonds and spices
Straight from the oven - all roasted and golden brown
Cut plums in half and remove the pip (1 or 2 plums per person). Place in an oven proof dish large enough to just hold the plums. Make sure each plum is facing with the cut side up so you have a hollow where the pip was. Over each plum drizzle some honey into each hollow and some generally over all the plums. Sprinkle with chopped up almonds and cinnamon to taste. Sometimes i add some seeds from a vanilla pod for some extra flavor.
Place in the oven at 180 degrees celcius and bake for roughly 15 - 20 min or until golden and soft.
In a separate bowl mix/beat the mascapone, milk, icing sugar and vanilla seeds. Adjust to taste.
Remove plums from the oven and place 2- 4 halves per person in pretty bowls and place a nice dollop of vanilla mascapone on top - serve straight away as mascapone will melt from the hot plums.
you can also use fresh peaches, pears or apricots or other soft flesh fruits in season.
