Sweet Saturday

With lovely plums ripe in our garden and lovely lush lavender what else to make than:

Lavender Roasted Plums with Lime Mascarpone

  •  2-3 plums per person depending on size
  • 1 stalk of lavender per person
  • brown sugar
  • amaretto
  • mascarpone 225 gr
  • 1 dessert spoon of icing sugar
  • fine zest of 1-2 limes 

Preheat the oven to 180°C. Halve the plums and thread them onto a lavender stalk. Cover the end with foil else they'll burn. Put on a baking tray and sprinkle with brown sugar and amaretto. 

Place in the oven for 15-20 min, depending on the size of the plum, you want them to hold shape.
Mix the mascarpone with the zest and the icing sugar and cool.
Serve the plums warm with a dot of mascarpone on each halved plum.



  1. I wonder will we get any plums from our garden this summer. If not I'm gonna get them from a store and try your recipe. And the lavender is growing wild this year here:)

  2. Oh dat ziet er erg lekker uit!! Ga ik zeker ook eens proberen met pruiumen van de markt... Heb er zelf geen:(
