Plum and nutmeg brown betty

Yield: 1 servings

Measure Ingredient
600 grams Plums or; if you can get
; them, damsons (1
; 1/4lb)
110 grams Demerara sugar; (4oz)
Grated zest and juice of 1 lime
½ Nutmeg; freshly grated
85 grams Unsalted butter; (3oz)
165 grams Fresh brown breadcrumbs; (6oz)
1 Extra tbsp demerara sugar

Halve and stone the plums (or damsons). Mix the fruit with the lime zest and juice, sugar and grated nutmeg.

Melt the butter in a heavy based frying pan and tip in the breadcrumbs.

Cook over a mediun heat, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon until all the butter has been absorbed and the crumbs are golden in colour.

Layer the fruit and crumbs in a buttered, oven proof dish finishing with a layer of crumbs. Press down with the back of a spoon to compact the topping and then fork up and sprinkle on the remaining sugar.

Bake in centre of the pre-heated oven for about 45 minutes until the plums are cooked and the top is crispy and brown. You will need to test the plums with a skewer.

Serve with clotted cream and a scraping of nutmeg.
