A cross between a cake and a tart, tastes delicious and looks much harder to make than it is. You may use peaches, apples, pears that’s in season. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream or a dollop of freshly whipped cream. Taste great on its own too!

Slice 6-8 plums in half and remove the stone, then cut each half into 6 slices so you should get 12 slices per plum. If you can’t remove the stone, just carefully cut around it.

Mix the sliced plums with 2 tablespoons brown sugar and 1 teaspoon fine cinnamon.

Arrange the sliced plums on top of the pastry and bake further for about 35 minutes.

When cooled dust with icing sugar.

Serve with fresh whipped cream or custard or enjoy as is.
