Gluten free plum & coconut pudding

I had some plums that needed to be eaten, so decided to play around with a few flavours.

Plum & coconut pudding (gluten free)


5 – 6 plums (depending on size), cut in half, stones discarded

60g butter

1/2 cup caster sugar

1 egg, beaten

1 cup gluten free self raising flour

1 tsp xanthan gum

1/2 cup milk


2 tbs shredded coconut

2 tbs brown sugar

1 & 1/4 cups boiling water


Preheat fan forced oven to 180 celcius.  Grease a small casserole dish (I used an 18cm square dish).  Arrange plums, cut side down, in dish.

Cream butter and sugar, once smooth and creamy, slowly add egg then alternate the flour and milk.  Pour batter over the plums.

Sprinkle the coconut and brown sugar over the top.

Pour the boiling water over the topping, over the back of a spoon to diffuse the water.

Bake for approximately 45 minutes.  Serve with cream, ice-cream or custard.
