Brown Sugar Plums over Oatmeal with Whipped Ricotta

We’ve adapted our Roasted Persimmon Oatmeal to make this vibrant and juicy stone fruit showstopper. With a little prep the night before, this recipe can easily be scheduled for a no-fuss breakfast. Once the oats and plums are ready, use a stand mixer or hand mixer to whip up the light, velvety, and slightly sweet ricotta topping. And no need to search for perfectly ripe plums, Suvie’s slow cook gently softens the fruit and transforms the brown sugar and butter into a caramelized syrup.

Hi Anne, the settings for this recipe are Slow Cook, Low for 2 hours. As a reminder, your Suvie always assigns the same time and temperature for both zones when using Slow Cook.
