Plums are a succulent British fruit that range from sweet to tart and what better way to taste this in season fruit than by trying this delicious spiced roast plums with Earl Grey cream.

  1. Preheat the oven to Gas Mark 5, 190°C, fan 170°C. Fill a pan with 125ml (4fl oz) water. To make the cream, add the sugar and tea bags, bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 6 minutes, until syrupy. Discard the tea bags, and set aside to cool.
  2. Arrange the plums, cut- side up, the cinnamon and star anise in an ovenproof dish. Drizzle over the vanilla, orange juice and honey, then scatter with the sugar and bake for 20–25 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, whip the cream with the vanilla, then fold in the Earl Grey syrup. Serve with the plums.
