  • 4 large plums
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 200 ml double cream
  • 200 ml natural yoghurt
  • 2 tbsp lemon curd (I used homemade)


  • Heat the oven to 200C. Place the coconut oil into a small roasting dish and warm in the oven.
  • Cut the plums in half and take out the stone.
  • Place them in the dish, cut side down and drizzle the maple syrup over the top.
  • Roast for a good 20 minutes, turning the plums half way. They should be completely soft and slightly caramelised when finished. Leave to cool a little.
  • Whip the cream until it's just holding it's shape. Gently stir in the yoghurt and lemon curd. The mixture will thicken, so go lightly.
  • Take four small glasses and spoon an eighth of the plum compote into the bottoms, followed by an eighth of the cream mixture. Repeat the layers, reserving a piece of plum for the top.


Serves two to four depending on just how hungry you're feeling.
