A Sweet Little Plum And Almond Pudding

This plum pudding is easy to make and even quicker to eat. Slightly sweet, a little tart, and altogether very moreish, the mix of the nutty almond flour and the sour plums is a perfect match. Heavenly even, if you add a dollop or two of double thick cream. But the hardest part – and absolutely essential if you want to enjoy this pudding at the right texture – is to let it cool for a bit to gather some firmness after coming out the oven.

Course: Food, Sweets and DessertsDifficulty: Easy


Total time




  • 100 g ground almonds

  • 100 g sugar

  • 100 g melted butter

  • 2 large eggs

  • 6 fresh plums


  • Pre-heat the oven to 180 Celsius
  • Grease a 23cm baking dish
  • Combine almonds, sugar, melted butter and eggs and mix well to form a smooth batter
  • Halve fruit, remove stones and slice thickly
  • Arrange fruit on the base of the baking dish and pour over the batter
  • Bake for 40-50 minutes, until a skewer inserted comes out clean
  • Serve with lashings of custard, cream or ice cream (or just eat it straight from the dish, like we did)


  • Absolutely scrumptious, if you can bear to let it cool for a bit to gather some firmness after coming out the oven.
  • Almond flour isn’t just delicious, it’s also healthy, nutritious, and gluten-free.
  • With gratitude to Justine Drake for this very secret recipe.
