Baked plums with Honey Whipped Mascarpone

July 04

Baked stone fruit is one of my favourite summer treats.  They can be baked simply with a sprinkle of sugar until tender and served with vanilla ice cream or as I’ve served them here with a dollop of mascarpone.  Plums, peaches and nectarines all work well using this method.

  • serves Serves 4
  • time 50 mins


  1. 1. Preheat oven to 180˚C/ 350˚F/ Gas Mark 4.
  2. 2. In a small bowl combine 2 tablespoons of honey, caster sugar, the mascarpone cheese and the orange blossom water.
  3. 3. Place the plums in a large ovenproof dish skin side down. Put 1 tsp of the mascarpone mix into the centre of each half (you should be left with a little extra for serving) and drizzle with the remaining honey. Cook for 40-45 minutes until softened.
  4. 4. Divide the plums between serving bowls, top with a dollop of the remaining whipped mascarpone, flaked almonds and some of the sauce.
