With Christmas just around the corner why not treat yourself to this delicious dessert? These spiced plums on toasted brioche make a great festive treat.
- Drain the syrup off the plums into a small saucepan. Add the sugar and 2 tsp of the mixed spice. Gently heat until the sugar dissolves. Once dissolved, bring the syrup to the boil, to reduce the liquid by about half and thicken slightly.
- Meanwhile, de-stone and slice the plums into quarters. When the syrup has reduced, gently stir in the plums and leave to cool slightly.
- Stir ½ tsp mixed spice into the softened butter. Thickly slice and toast the brioche. Spread with mixed spice butter and place into serving bowls.
- Spoon the spiced plums over the brioche and top with a little of the thick cream to serve.
