DIRECTIONS

  • Preset oven to 180C (350F).
  • Cut plums in half and remove stones.
  • Place plums, cut side up, into a rectangular baking dish- corningware, pyrex or similar.
  • In a large jug, combine Marsala, vanilla, cinnamon, sugar and lemon rind.
  • Mix well then pour this mixture evenly over the plums.
  • Bake on the centre shelf of the oven for 40 minutes, turning plums over after 20 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and strain liquid into a small saucepan.
  • Remove the lemon rind and discard.
  • Make a paste with the arrowroot and a little water and add to the juice in the saucepan.
  • Place pan over a medium heat and cook, whisking constantly, until it reaches simmering point.
  • Simmer sauce for about 5 minutes until it is slightly thickened and glossy- it will thicken more as it cools.
  • Pour the liquid back over the plums.
  • Serve plums hot or cold with cream or ice-cream.
