This week Erika Rax and Gemma are hosting a virtual morning tea in support of Cancer Council’s Biggest Morning Tea to raise money for cancer research. It is a great cause, and please head to Erika’s blog to find out how to take part and donate.
For my morning tea I have made spiced yoghurt with maple roasted plums. Recently I have been experimenting with making my own yoghurt and this is the first flavoured version – it turned out well! I love food laced with sweet spices as the weather starts to get cooler, and this was just what I was craving. All up this took about twenty minutes to put together, and most of that was waiting for the plums to cook.
To serve two you will need:
300ml plain unsweetened yoghurt
half a teaspoon of ground cinnamon
half a teaspoon of ground nutmeg
three just ripe plums
a few glugs of maple syrup
Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees. Add the cinnamon and nutmeg to the yoghurt and stir well. Leave in the fridge until ready to serve. Cut the plums in half and place on a baking tray flesh side up, pour some maple syrup over each one. You want most of the syrup to stay on the plum rather that the tray – you will probably need about a tablespoon per plum half. Bake these in the oven for around fifteen minutes until they look soft and are starting to darken around the edges. Take them out to cool slightly, and then serve in a bowl with your spiced yoghurt. Swirl a teaspoon of maple syrup over the top before serving.
