Yummy Plum Crumble

Crumbles are so popular when it comes to British desserts. Choose from apple crumble, apple and blackberry crumble, rhubarb crumble or this fantastic plum crumble recipe. This is perfect when you have a glut of fresh plums to use up. Perhaps they are on sale locally or one of your family, friends or neighbours are growing them. Whichever is the case, this recipe makes great use of fresh plums, teaming them with sugar, cinnamon, orange zest and a crunchy crumble top, to make the most mouth-watering dessert. This is traditionally served with custard or whipped cream, or even vanilla ice cream.

You will need cooking plums to make this delectable crumble, perhaps Victoria or dessert plums. You will also need light brown sugar, cinnamon and orange zest to complement the plums, along with flour and water to get the filling mixture just right. For the crumble: flour, butter, almonds, and 2 kinds of sugar come together to get the perfect texture and flavour result. Use half flour and half oats for a crunchier topping.

As for the garnish, we like to use plum slices and fresh mint sprigs, but it depends if you are making these in ramekins or one main dish. Make this crumble in ramekins and they will take about half an hour to bake. Use a larger dish and you can expect the cooking time to be closer to 40 minutes. Serve the plum crumble with custard, whipped cream or even your favourite good quality vanilla ice cream, for a dessert to remember. Continue reading
