This recipe for Simple Maple Roasted Plums is just that…simple.
Start with ripe, but not soft plums. Cut them in half. I am showing this below. Cut into the pit, then cut all the way around with the knife still touching the pit.
Next, gently twist your plum and open.
You can either roast your plum halves or cut into sections as I did. Place on a baking sheet
The maple syrup mix
The maple syrup mix used on the plums is simple to make as well. Start with pure maple syrup. No, Mrs. Butterworth’s won’t work. 🙂
Add a little vanilla.
A dash of salt.
Pour mixture over the plums. I like to carefully mix them too. Just to make sure all are coated.
Baking the Plums
The plums are roasted at 400 degrees. You want them to be tender, but not mushy.
I like to test them with a fork. You will be able to tell right away if the plums are tender, they are ready to go. You will also notice the plums have released so much liquid and mixed with the maple syrup combination.
Serving the Maple Roasted Plums
There are so many ways you can serve these plums. I am showing them served over a butter pecan ice cream. Some other ways to serve them are over oatmeal, other porridge, yogurt etc. It is really versatile!
The flavor of the roasted peaches are so amazing. Combine that flavor with the maple syrup, and you have a great winning combo.
Don’t let that liquid go to waste. It is so good!
Plus, the color is so beautiful too!
If you are looking forward to a good, relatively healthy sweet treat, this is it!
I also have a really good recipe for roasted cherries as well. It is the same process and so good as well!

They are perfect over ice cream ( I prefer a butter pecan or vanilla), they are also really good over oatmeal or other porridge. They are delicious on their own as well. Now, sit back and enjoy.
