vanilla, and coconut milk to form a soft dough
Spread dough on the round baking tray

circumference and work towards the middle
Sprinkle plums with cinnamon and then sprinkle the nuts over the plum
Bake for 30 minutes

Coconut Whipped Cream
400g (1 tin) of Coconut cream (leave this in the fridge overnight as this will ensure the
coconut cream solidifies and separates from the coconut water)

Spoon the coconut cream out of the tin (not the water, but this will be
sitting at the bottom of the tin)
