Roasting gives the plums a caramelized flavor and lemon, sugar and brandy enhance the inherently sweet and sour aspect of the fruit.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Place plum halves skin-side down in a 9-by-13-inch baking dish. Sprinkle with sugar and lemon juice; bake until the juices are thickened and the plums are tender, shaking pan occasionally to distribute juices, 30 to 40 minutes. Stir in brandy and lemon zest.
