Step 1: Preheat a fan forced oven to 180C.

Step 2: Place the plums into a baking dish and dot each plum half with the a little butter, sprinkle with two tablespoons of brown sugar and drizzle with two tablespoons of Verjuice. Place the plums into the pre heated oven to cook for 15 minutes.

Step 3: While the plums are cooking combine the remaining ingredients for the cobbler topping into a mixing bowl and rub through the butter until it looks like coarse bread crumbs.

Step 4: Once the plums have been in the oven for the 15 minutes remove, top with the cobbler mixture and return to the oven for a further 30 minutes. Remove from oven, sprinkle with almonds and serve warm with runny cream.
