Plum a la Crumb


Classic pudding here. I like it best served with vanilla Swedish Glace or custard. Plums were on offer at a pound yesterday so I thought it was time to whip out my baking dish and make...

Plum a la Crumb!

(or plum crumble to boring people)

  • 4 tbsp brown sugar
  • 3 tbsp water
  • 500g plums, with the pip taken out and sliced thinly
  • Tinned apricots, sliced (entirely optional, I only used them because they were lying around)
  • 75g plain flour
  • 25g oats
  • 50g chopped cashew nuts (optional but they make it so nice and crunchy!)
  • 50g brown sugar
  • 50g soya butter
  1. Put the sugar, water and plums in a pan and cook until nice and soft


  1. While the plums are cooking, put the flour, oats, cashews, sugar and butter into a bowl and rub the butter into the mixture with your fingers, until it's nice and crumbly.


  1. When the fruit is cooked, pour into a large oven proof dish. Sprinkle sliced apricots on top if you're using them and then top with the crumble mixture


  1. Heat the oven to 180C and bake for 30 minutes
  2. Serve on its own or with custard/ice cream/whatever you fancy

  2. Thanks! It's really delicious and easy to make. You can make it in the morning, leave it out on the side and then stick it in the oven when you're ready, which is good too :)
