Black Doris Plums in Syrup

Generations of Kiwis have loved Black Doris Plums. Wattie's makes sure this continues, picking only the finest plums from Hawke's Bay orchards.

Method

Step 1
Preheat oven to 160°C. Line the base of a 23cm loose-bottomed cake tin with baking paper. Halve the Wattie's Black Doris Plums and remove the stones.
Step 2
Mix ground almonds, butter, caster sugar, self-raising flour and eggs in a food processor or with electric beaters until the ingredients are combined. Press two thirds of the mixture over the base of the cake tin.
Step 3
Drop spoonfuls of Craig's Black Doris Plum Jam over the mixture and then place the plum halves on top.
Step 4
Dot the remaining shortcake mixture over the plums. Sprinkle over the sliced almonds.
Step 5
Bake for 55-60 minutes until cooked and golden. Cool in the tin before removing.
Step 6
Serve dusted with icing sugar.

Tips

Swap It Out

Replace the plums and plum jam with apricot halves and Craig-s Apricot Jam. You will need 2 x 410g cans of Wattie-s Apricot Halves in Clear Juice and 1 x Craig-s Apricot Jam.
Replace the plums and plum jam with peaches and Craig-s Raspberry Jam - you will need 2 x 410g cans Wattie-s Peaches sliced in Juice and 1 x Craig-s Raspberry Jam.
