  • 2 oz butter
  • 6 oz fresh white breadcrumbs
  • 1 1/2 lb ripe fresh plums halved and stoned
  • 4 oz soft brown sugar
  • Finely grated rind and juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 7 1/2 floz fresh or diluted orange juice


  • Brush the base and sides of a shallow baking dish with some of the butter.
  • Cover the base with some of the breadcrumbs. Put a layer of plums in the dish, sprinkle with some of the sugar and a little lemon rind and juice. Dot with more butter.
  • Continue with these layers until all the ingredients are used up, finishing with a layer of breadcrumbs and dotting with butter.
  • Pour over the orange juice and bake in a fairly hot oven (190°C/375°F or Gas Mark 5) for 40 to 45 minutes or until the charlotte feels tender when pierced with a skewer and the top layer of breadcrumbs is golden-brown.
  • Serve straight from the baking dish.
