  • Pour on top of the plums and spread out evenly.
  • Place in the oven and bake for 50 minutes or until golden brown on top and a skewer comes out clean in the center.
  • Remove and allow to cool for 5 minutes before flipping over onto a plate.
  • Allow to cool.
  • Serve with a little whipped cream or Greek yogurt if you wish.
