My family’s favourite plum pie.

Jump to recipe

It’s a plum season here in British Columbia. We love plums but we also love using plums for baking. I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve baked this pie before. During the plum season I bake it on repeat, and there’s so many reasons why we all love it.

It’s a perfect combination of a sweet base and sour plums, it’s an amazing fresh and flavourful taste, it doesn’t need lots of ingredients, or special baking skills, it is quick to prepare and what’s most important, it is very, very delicious. This pie is good as is, but a big scoop of vanilla Ice cream goes soooo well with it too. Bake it once, and I guaranteed this pie would become one of the favourites in your household too! 

Tip! I always use prune plums for this pie. Don’t have plums? No worries, use peaches nectarines, apricots and even berries. But remember that the sweater the fruit, the less sugar should be added to the dough. Experiment with sweetness and figure out your preferred sugar to fruit ratio.
