4

Ingredients

  • 2 Tbs. unsalted butter
  • 4 large plums, pitted and sliced (4 cups)
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup apple cider
  • 4 slices nonfat pound cake
  • 4 tsp. chopped candied ginger

Preparation

Melt butter in large skillet over medium-high heat. Add plums, and sauté 5 minutes, or until softened, stirring halfway through. Sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon, and reduce heat to medium. Stir in apple cider, and simmer 4 to 5 minutes, or until cider is syrupy, scraping up any brown bits from bottom of pan.

Meanwhile, toast pound cake in toaster oven until browned.

Place 1 slice pound cake on each plate. Spoon plums and sauce over cake, top with ice cream, and sprinkle with candied ginger.
