No rain no gain –

For this weeks bake off bake I made this gorgeous plum frangipane using some plums from a neighbours allotment.

A few days ago we had been told that we could help ourselves to a few plums from their tree, but that we needed to watch out for the wasps that had already been ‘helping their selves’. The best time to pick them was apparently the evening, when the wasps would have calmed down.

So tonight I decided that as it was raining very heavily to pop on the raincoat and boots and run to the allotment to pick some plums (my thinking was that there would be no chance the wasps would be there in the rain…I was right).

The plums tasted amazing fresh from the tree, and they also looked great on top of the frangipan! I’ll be making this again I’m sure!

Oh also…I’ve managed to hurt my back! So no digging for me, booo.
