SERVES 6

FRUIT & SPONGE

600g red or purple plums stoned and cut into wedges

150g self-raising flour

50g golden caster sugar plus a little for sprinkling

80g unsalted butter chilled and diced

finely grated zest of 1 lemon

1 medium egg

100ml milk

SAUCE

80g light muscovado sugar

25g unsalted butter

¼ tsp fine sea salt

juice of ½ lemon

TO SERVE

vanilla ice cream

★ Select a shallow 1.5 litre ovenproof dish (for example a 30cm oval gratin dish). Preheat the oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Arrange the sliced plums evenly in the dish. For the sponge, place the flour, sugar, butter and lemon zest in a food processor and whiz to crumbs, then add the egg and the milk and combine. Smooth the sponge mixture in a thin layer on top of the plums, which will show through. Place all the ingredients for the sauce in a small saucepan, bring to the boil and pour this over the pudding. Sprinkle over a little extra sugar and bake for 30-40 minutes until golden on the surface, with rich plummy juices lapping at the sides. Serve 10-15 minutes out of the oven, with ice cream.
