For the mulled wine plums

  • 1 1/4 cups (300ml) mulled wine
  • 2 tbsp. sugar
  • pinch of cinnamon
  • 56 plums

For the cream

  • 9 oz. (250g) mascarpone
  • 9 oz. (250g) low-fat curd
  • zest of 1/2 organic orange
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) orange juice
  • 1 tbsp. confectioner’s sugar
  • 7 oz. (200g) fruit cake (Christstollen)

For the decoration

  • whipped cream


  1. Add the mulled wine, sugar and cinnamon to a pot and bring to a boil – let reduce to about half of the amount. In the meantime wash, stone and cut the plums into slices. Add to the pot and let cook until soft (but not mushy) and the mulled wine is reduced to a thick sauce. Take off the heat and let cool down.
  2. Mix the mascarpone, low-fat curd, orange zest, juice and confectioner’s sugar until well combined. Crumble the fruit cake and divide about 3/4 of it between 4 glass jars. Add the mascarpone cream and plums on top (save 4 plum slices) and sprinkle with the remaining fruit cake pieces. Decorate with some whipped cream and plum slices.
