It's a bit like my insomnia. I feel like I am finally starting to see the sunshine again after two long years of frosty sleepless nights. The acupuncture has been amazing leaving me with just one restless night a week. And it's had a massive impact on my decision to lose three stone this year. I'm moving more. Eating less. Appreciating food more.
Baked Plums with Custard Marscapone (although I have them with low fat vanilla yogurt!) Serves 2
2 heaped tbsp brown sugar
1 egg (separated)
1 vanilla pod
1 tbsp caster sugar
Pre heat the oven to 180'c. Slice the plums and remove the stones....(why is this so difficult? Plums seem desperate to cling on to their stones!)
Place in a baking tray and sprinkle with the brown sugar. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes.
Take the egg yolk and in a small dish whisk with sugar until light yellow. In another bowl whisk the egg white until firm. In ANOTHER bowl (sorry washing up haters) put the marscapone. Mix in the seeds of the vanilla pod and egg the egg yolk. Mix together. Add half the egg white and fold in with a metal spoon. (Throw the other half away). Take the plums out of the oven and serve with the marscapone custard.
