    Baked Plums with Frozen Almond Cream

    Well… I admit once again … I am a sucker for sweets and pastry making! Today’s recipe is a sweet indulgence, a not so healthy treat. After all, if there are no health reasons, a slip now and then does not hurt but it breaks the monotony. 😉 As long as one can control the slip and does not often repeats it. So here’s  a summer treat, an impressive fruity dessert: baked plums with frozen almond cream.

    The fruits are baked in red wine and the sauce is fragrant and very tasty! The frozen almond cream is nothing more than whipped cream with chopped and caramelized almonds, the easiest ice cream that you can make. It is best to make the almond cream a day ahead, to freeze well. For the vegan version read the notes below.
