Prunes are really plums and are not used enough. This dish is so easy and anyone who has it loves it.


  • 1 tbsp English breakfast tea

  • 300ml boiling water

  • 4 tbsp Armagnac or Cognac

  • 250g prunes, pitted

  • 2 tbsp caster sugar

  • 200 ml whipping cream

  • 1 tbsp icing sugar, sifted

  • You can substitute the cream with the King Island Yoghurt


  • 1.

    Pour boiling water over tea leaves and infuse for 10 mins.

  • 2.

    (I use 1 teabag).

  • 3.

    Strain, add 2 tbsp of the Armagnac and pour over the prunes.

  • 4.

    Cool and refrigerate for a few hours.

  • 5.

    Strain the liquid into a saucepan, add caster sugar and bring to the boil, stirring. Allow to bubble until the liquid is reduced to a light syrup, then cool.

  • 6.

    The prunes, syrup and cream should all be well-chilled before serving.

  • 7.

    Beat the cream until thick and stir in remaining Armagnac and icing sugar.

  • 8.

    Layer all this in glass dishes with stems.
