That smell of fall is in the air
Cinnamon and plums! That combination always takes me back. Back to when I was a kid and we’d have all that plum cake. More than we could actually eat. It is just such a traditional stone fruit for my area, super delicious and so versatile in its use. You can make jam, compote, cake and a lot of typical german sweets that I could not really translate. 😉
But nevertheless I’ve made this compote because it reminded me of the best part of that plum cake. That juicy and moist top layer. Filled with a load of plums and sugar. For this version I’ve made it (industrial) sugar free, of course. This way it makes the perfect combination for the cinnamon granola. But you can also use this compote to top your pancakes with, desserts, other cakes or sweets. Always feel free and get creative.

Meanwhile take a cutting board. Wash the plums, remove the seed and cut in small pieces.
Take a small saucepan. Add the plums, maple syrup and cinnamon. Put on high heat.
Stir the granola occasionally. It's done once it has a nice golden and brown color. This takes up to 10-15 minutes.
Let the compote cook at high heat until it liquid part starts to thicken up. Turn off heat and set aside.

Don't forget to #therawberryeats over on instagram or facebook when you remake this one. I'd love to see your recreations. 🙂
Speaking of plums, did you know that they are super vitamin packed and nutritious rich? Which makes me want to remake some compote right away. Plums are rich in vitamin A, C, B2, B3, B-6 and E. In addition to that they have a lot of minerals as well. Click here for more info (not sponsored).
As this breakfast looks like some lazy Sunday brunch would start, it does not take up a lot of time at all. Though it would be a great way to start the weekend with. It definitely looks like more effort than it actually is.
You can also make the granola ahead and store in an airtight container once it has cooled down. This way it holds up to two weeks. If you’ve some left over from the compote, store in the fridge and make sure to use it up within the next days.
All the best,
