I made this during my cookathon weekend a few weeks ago.
We had an old plum that needed to be eaten and some left over puff pastry. Also a few years ago I bought a little stainless steel frying pan to make omeletts. It’s the perfect size for a one-person-dessert & it has a steel handle so you can put it in the oven. All this together meant I had to give it a go.
I’ve never made one before but have seen them being made a thousand times on various cooking programs.
Soften the plum in some brown sugar, water & lemon juice. After it is soft, place the plum into the oven proof pan with a little of the syrupy liquid. Cut the puff pastry to the size of the pan and put on top of the plums. Brush with milk.
I put mine in the oven for about 15 minutes until the pastry had risen and gone brown.
Turn the whole thing out onto a plate and dust with icing sugar.
“Good…cool…I ready liked it actually.”
