Sticky spiced plums
- 450g plums, halved and stoned
- 1 vanilla pod (or use 1/4 tsp Extra Special Vanilla Bean Extract)
- 1 cinnamon stick
- 200ml apple juice
- 2 tbsp clear honey
Pre-heat the oven to 180C/160C Fan/Gas 4. Put the plums in in an ovenproof dish, skin-side down.
Make a cut all along the vanilla pod so the tiny black seeds are exposed. Add the pod or vanilla bean extract to the dish of plums, along with the cinnamon stick.
Mix the apple juice with the honey and pour over. Cover the dish with a lid or foil and bake for 15-25 minutes or until the plums are tender but still retain their shape. The cooking time will depend on how ripe they are, so check after 15 minutes.
