Ingredients

  • Grated zest and juice of an orange
  • 500g plums, halved and pitted
  • 7 medium slices white bread, crusts removed
  • 1tsp cinnamon
  • 4tbsp artificial sweetener

  4. Brush a 15cm straight sided baking dish or cake tin with the low-fat spread.
  5. Brush the rest of the low-fat spread lightly over the slices of bread. Place one slice in the base of the dish youre using, reserve one slice for the top and then fit the rest of the slices around the sides. Ease them into place so that they fit nicely and cut any leftovers to fill in any gaps.
  6. Spoon in the plums and place the remaining slice of bread on top, folding the bread around the sides over to enclose the plum filling.
  7. Bake in the oven for 3035 minutes. Allow the to cool for a few minutes and then serve.

When you spoon in the plums do you put the juice in as well? It seems quite a lot.
