Baked blackberry and plum compote with amaretti and yogurtSubscribe to Sainsbury's magazine
- 10 red plums, halved and stones removed
- 50g caster sugar
- 2 strips of lemon zest
- 1 vanilla pod, halved lengthways
- 450g blackberries
- a little lemon juice, if needed
- 6 tbsp Greek-style natural yogurt, to serve
- 6 amaretti biscuits, crushed, to serve
Cook the day before, then chill. Bring to room temperature before serving.
Preheat the oven to 180°C, fan 160°C, gas 4 and place the plums, cut side up, in a small roasting tin. Sprinkle with the sugar, add the lemon zest, vanilla pod and a splash of cold water. Bake for 15 minutes, then remove and turn over the plums. Scatter the blackberries over the top.
Bake for a further 15 minutes until the plums and blackberries have softened nicely. Remove the fruit from the tin and allow to cool.
Taste it (you may need to add a little lemon juice to lift the flavours), remove the lemon zest and vanilla pod. Serve at room temperature with a dollop of Greek yogurt, sprinkled with the crushed amaretti biscuits.
