  • 1 vanilla pod, split and seeds removed
  • 1tbsp cinnamon
  • vanilla ice cream, to serve


  • Heat the oven to 200 C, 180 C fan, 400 F, gas 6. Halve and de-stone the plums. Mix the sugar, vanilla seeds and cinnamon, and toss the plums in it, retaining the leftovers. Place the plums, cut-side up, very close together on a foil-lined baking sheet with the corners turned up to touch the edges of the fruit; cover with the remaining sugar. Bake for 20 minutes until caramelised. Serve 4 to 6 halves per person, with vanilla ice cream and any juices spooned over.
