*This recipe is gluten-free according to industry standards



  • dark red plums 500g, halved and stones removed
  • Marsala 200ml
  • golden caster sugar 100g
  • star anise 2
  • cinnamon stick 1, broken in 2
  • icing sugar 2 tbsp, sifted
  • vanilla bean paste or extract 1 tsp
  • double cream 250ml


  • Step 1

    Heat the oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4. Put the plum halves cut-side up into a deep baking tray, large enough so that they are in a single layer. Pour over the marsala, sprinkle over the sugar and add the star anise and cinnamon stick to the marsala.

  • Step 2

    Cook in the oven for 20-25 minutes or until the plums are tender and juicy, and the sauce has reduced and is slightly syrupy. Remove from the oven and leave to stand for 10 minutes.

  • Step 3

    Meanwhile, add the icing sugar and vanilla bean paste to the cream and use electric beaters to whip until very soft peaks.

  • Step 4

    Pile the plums onto serving plates with plenty of the syrup, then spoon over the chantilly cream.
