“Excellent, elegant desert, especially when served with a dollop of crème fraîche.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven the 475°F.
  2. In a large, ovenproof skillet (nonstick is easiest) over medium-high heat, stir in the brown sugar, honey, unsalted butter, and thyme.
  3. Allow butter to melt and cook for 2 additional minutes, stirring constantly. The butter mixture will be very bubbly.
  4. Add the plum halves, cut side down, to the butter mixture.
  5. Cook the plums for 2 minutes, undisturbed.
  6. Turn the plums over, cut side up, and transfer the skillet to the oven.
  7. Roast the plums until the caramel sauce is a deep brown color, between 4 and 6 minutes. Check frequently to prevent burning.
  8. Remove the plum halves to plates and spoon the sauce over the plums, leaving the thyme sprigs in the skillet.
  9. Serve warm with a dollop of crème fraîche (optional) and an additional thyme sprig for garnish.
