Simple Maple Roasted Plums

Jump to Recipe

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. 🙂

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.

  • 4-6 plums
  • 1/3 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
    Cut plums in half, then remove pit. You can either roast in halves or cut into sections like I did. Pour onto baking sheet
    Add maple syrup, vanilla and salt into small bowl or jar. Mix.
    Pour the Maple syrup over the plums. You can also do this all in a bowl and mix well. If you do it on the pan like I did, just make sure and mix so the maple syrup mix coverers everything.
    Place in oven and roast for about 15-30 minutes. Test the plums with a fork. You want them to be tender, but not mushy.
    Remove from pan and they are ready to.
    I love to serve these while they are still slightly warm. 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. You deserve it!
