Type of Dishdessert

Ingredients

  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 7 tbsp cold butter, cubed
  • 1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 2/3 cup rolled (old-fashioned) oats
  • 1 lb 5 oz (600g) plums, halved and pitted
  • Maple syrup or honey, to drizzle

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). To make the topping, combine the flour and butter in a large mixing bowl and rub in the butter with your fingertips until the mixture is combined. Work in the sugar and oats. The mixture should remain lumpy.

Spread the plums in an ovenproof dish and drizzle with the maple syrup. Crumble the topping over the plums. Bake for 30–40 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and the juices are bubbling.

Variation: Rhubarb Crumble

Use 1 lb 10 oz (750g) rhubarb, cut into 1 in (2.5cm) lengths. Generously drizzle the rhubarb with honey and a squeeze of orange juice, then crumble the topping over the fruit and bake.
