Recipe

This late-summer dessert is suitable for both family suppers and dinner parties for friends. Good with ice cream or warm custard.

Yield: Makes 4 servings
Prep time: 10 Mins
Cooking time: 30–40 Mins

Ingredients

For the topping:

  • 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

Directions

1. 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.

2. 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.

Notes

Prepare ahead: The topping can be frozen for up to 1 month.

Freezing Information: Freeze for up to 2 months.
