Plum and cinnamon oat slices: Delia Smith
Makes about 12 – 15
Great with plums, but you can use apricots, raspberries and blueberries or whatever is in season. Great for children to make.
- 450gm of fresh plums
- 1 rounded tspn of cinnamon
- 275gm of plain wholemeal flour
- 150gm of porridge oats
- 1 tspn salt
- 225gm of butter
- 110gm of light brown sugar
Line a 25 x 15 (or similar) tin with greaseproof paper. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees C.
Cut the plums in half, following their natural line, and remove the stones. Cut plums into thin slices. Toss with the cinnamon and set aside.
Mix the flour, oats and salt together. Melt the butter and sugar together over a low heat. Mix into the flour and oat mix until you end up with a dough.
Press half the dough over the bottom the baking tin.
Scatter the plums over the dough.
Top with the remaining oat mixture.
Place tin in the centre of a 200C oven. Bake for 25-30 minutes. Remove and cool for 10 minutes. Cut into squares. Leave to cool completely in the tin.
The orchids in full flower the weekend we made these.
