Baked Plum Pudding

Time: 40 minutes

Music Selection: Let’s Go Crazy – Prince

This plum pudding recipe is super simple and can be made for breakfast, brunch or dessert! I like it for a breakfast dish, when I have a lot of plums that are ripe. You can make this dish with other fruit, too – peaches, apricots, pears, strawberries or raspberries. All good, but you might want to switch out the cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and cloves for vanilla! I am quite sure that if you have this for breakfast or brunch, you will be handle all types of “crazy” that might come your way today!


¾ cup sugar, plus 2 additional Tbsp of sugar

5 plums

3 large eggs

½ tsp cinnamon

¼ tsp ginger

¼ tsp nutmeg

¼ tsp cloves

½ cup flour

1 ½ cups cream

½ tsp salt

1 tsp vanilla

Optional toppings: vanilla greek yogurt, fruit syrup and/or raspberries


Pre-heat oven to 400 deg F. Butter either 6 ramekins that can go in oven or a 9 x 13 baking dish.

Slice plums into 6-8 slices each and put in a bowl. Toss the plums with the cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, cloves and 2 Tbsp sugar. Place plums in ramekins or baking dish.

In a separate bowl, mix the eggs, flour, salt and cream.

Pour cream mixture over the plums.

Place in oven. Bake for 15 minutes then without opening the oven, reduce the heat to 350 deg F. If baking in ramekins, bake for another 12 – 15 minutes; if baking a 9 x 13 baking dish, then bake for another 20 – 25 minutes. Remove from oven and dust with additional powdered sugar. You can also top with a dollop of vanilla greek yogurt, a drizzle of fruit syrup and/or extra fruit, like raspberries!
