  1. Preheat oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Put the sliced plums in a shallow baking dish (about 20x30cm). Add the vanilla, cornflour and sugar, then gently toss to coat.
  2. For the coconut crisp, combine the flour, sugar, butter, pecans and coconut in a bowl. Using your fingers, rub the butter into the dry ingredients, until it resembles chunky breadcrumbs. Scatter it over the fruit and bake for 40 minutes, or until golden. Serve warm.
