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.

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 6
Serve dusted with icing sugar.
