    Kookaburra's Note:

    When fresh plums are at their best, try this heavenly recipe. I could eat it every night! Thanks to English food writer, Delia Smith, for the original recipe which I have adapted.

      Yum - plums, marsala and cinnamon are a fabulous combination. We had it with ice cream which was great. If you don't like desserts too sweet, I would go for cream instead. I didn't bother thickening it with the arrowroot as it was fairly thick already. My only reservation is that is might take a bit of work to make it look 'elegant' as most of my plums fell apart.
