Recipe: Filo plum cakes


Preparation time: 20 minutes

Cooking time: 25 minutes

Serves: 8

Difficulty: Easy

  • 8 sprays Cooking spray with controlled calorie content
  • 270g filo pastry, 6 x 45g filo pastry slices, thawed if frozen
  • 1 medium egg, whole, raw, beaten
  • 50 g ground almonds
  • 25 g of powdered sugar
  • 4 small plums, halved, pitted and thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon of powdered sugar for sprinkling


Step 1

Preheat the oven to 180°C, fan to 160°C, gas setting 4. Spray 2 baking trays with cooking spray.

Step 2

Cut each filo sheet into 8 equal squares. Layer the squares on the prepared baking sheets in 8 piles, coating each layer of dough with a little cooking spray and gradually stagger the squares to form a rough circle.

Step 3

Reserving 1 tablespoon of the beaten egg, mix the rest with the ground almonds and sugar to form a paste. Divide this mixture between the pastry rounds and spread it in the middle leaving a border around the edge. Top the almond mixture with chopped plums. Brush the edges of the dough with the reserved egg and scrape the dough around the filling a little.

Step 4

Bake for 20-25 minutes or until pastry is crisp and golden. Serve the cakes warm, sprinkled with a little powdered sugar.

Step 5

Top tip: Keep the phyllo pastry covered with a damp cloth to prevent it from drying out until you need it.
