Baked Plums with Ginger & Orange (Low-Carb, Paleo)Pin recipeFollow us 111.7k

Plums, ginger, orange and cinnamon, simplicity at its best. Perfect for breakfast or pudding. These baked plums with ginger and orange are the ultimate tasty, speedy treat and with plums in season now, it’s super cheap to make. It’s preferable that the plums are slightly underripe, otherwise they will over cook and fall apart… though this still tastes awesome too! Serve with either Greek or coconut yoghurt.

Ingredients (makes 6 servings)

  • 5 firm plums, pitted (330 g/ 11.6 oz)
  • 2-inch ginger, peeled (18 g/ 0.6 oz)
  • 1/2 tsp of cinnamon
  • zest of 1 large orange
  • 1-2 tbsp water
  • 10-15 drops liquid stevia, or to taste
  • Serving suggestions: serve each portion with 2-4 heaping tablespoons of full-fat Greek yoghurt or Coconut yogurt (you can make your own)


  1. Preheat oven to 375 F (190 C fan assisted). Wash the plums. Slice in half and remove the stones. Cut into segments. Roughly 8 segments per plum and place on a baking tray. Baked Plums with Ginger & Orange (Low-Carb, Paleo)
  2. Peel the ginger, grate and place in a bowl. Zest the orange. Add to the bowl with the ginger, cinnamon and water. Pour over the plums and mix well. Baked Plums with Ginger & Orange (Low-Carb, Paleo)
  3. Rearrange the plums on the baking tray, flesh side down so the plums don’t overlap. Bake in the oven for about 20 minutes. If your plums are riper they will need less cooking time, approximately 10 minutes in total. Remove from the oven and serve warm or cold, your choice, with coconut or Greek yoghurt. Option to drizzle with a little honey if you like things sweeter. Baked Plums with Ginger & Orange (Low-Carb, Paleo)

In the ingredients it's written "5 tbsp of water (75 ml/ 2.5 fl oz)," but in your instruction you use only 1 tbsp of water. Where do the rest of 4 tbsp of water go? ;)
p.s. by the way it's extremely delicious recipe! Thank you! i made it several times by using water by eye ;)


Thank you! I'm not sure what happened there but you are right - it should be 1-2 tablespoons. I think it won't matter if you use more as you will get more juices but I'll fix it now 😊
