Time: 1 hour
It is Sunday and my family is sleeping in – and I have ripe plums to use up… This is a super delicious and healthy breakfast, brunch or dessert. It has the right amount of anise flavouring to make this an absolutely divine dish. I paired it with this music, as it is Sunday and because it seemed so timely with the situation of so many, needing hope and kindness when times are tough for many. May you be inspired to make this dish, but to also share some kindness today to others…
