This delightful recipe was given to me by a dear friend. She has a huge blackberry patch, so is always looking for blackberry recipes. This one is served cold, so is especially nice on a warm lazy July evening.
With no peeling to be done, plum pie is one of the easiest and fastest pies to make, and sooooo good especially with whipped cream or ice cream on top. Prep time doesn't include making the crust. Use your favorite homemade double crust pie shell, or the dreaded store bought - either way it's as easy as Pie!
I make this often, especially in the fall as you can use any fruit you like - apples peaches pears! I have also used canned plums (2 - 14oz cans, must drain thoroughly) Recipe taken from Anne Lindsay's Light Kitchen cookbook.
This is an variation on a recipe found in The Muffin Lady cookbook. I used plums, because that's what I had, but peaches would be delicious, too. She says to use unripe fruit, as it will ripen up and get sweet during cooking. Also, use sliced fruit rather than chopped, because chopped will tend to "get lost" during baking. These muffins are like a hand held fruit cobbler. So good!
Wow! I combined the best of two recipes I found here at Recipezaar and this came out! It's beautiful, easy, and serves more than the two recipes I combined. (Thanks to AmbyDawn and Tamibic2 for the ideas.)
This cake is low in fat and not too sweet. The glaze is optional, it takes a minute to prepare and adds only a few more calories. Great way to use up fresh plumbs in season. We like it best without the glaze, which also helps the diabetic.
A delicious low fat and EASY dessert to impress! A wonderful mix of ingredients that is great served with home-made ice cream or creme fraiche. These pears cook quite happily in the microwave - as well as the more conventional baking or stove top method too. A recipe I devised for our Bed & Brekafast last Autumn, after a huge harvest of pears from our garden and whilst also trying to find a use for numerous opened packets of dried fruits and nuts!!
