Weight Watchers plum Amaretto pudding is a great dessert for anyone following a healthy eating plan, but really in need of a treat.

To make it indulgent (without being a diet-wrecker), the fresh plums get soaked in Amaretto liqueur, then baked in a sweet batter. Feel free to use sweet Marsala wine or sherry, if you prefer the taste, but we love the almondy flavour of Amaretto with the tartness of the plums. This recipe serves 6 people and takes 1hr and 10 mins to prepare and bake. If you want to make this dessert extra special, serve with a drizzle of our low fat custard (opens in new tab). This pud is perfect for enjoying after your roast dinner on a Sunday. And if you're following the WW plan, a portion of this dessert works out at only 4 points per serving.
