  1. 1kg damson

Instructions Jump to Ingredients ↑

  1. Heat the oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4. Put the damsons in 4-6 ovenproof dishes (or one large dish) and sprinkle evenly with 150g of the sugar.

  2. Sift the flour and remaining sugar into a bowl with a pinch of salt. Whisk in enough milk and the butter to make a thick, smooth mixture that will just fall off the spoon. Spoon big blobs over the damsons but don't worry if the fruit is not completely covered - it will bubble through it as it cooks. Bake for 40-45 minutes until the tops are golden. Leave for 20 minutes before serving.

  3. Know-how You can make one big slump or individual ones. It's better to leave the stones in the damsons than waste hours trying to get them out. Serve topped with plenty of cream.
