Plum Crumble – Round 2!

Plum & Apple Crumble

As some of you know, I recently attempted a plum crumble that nearly blocked my arteries with the amount of butter in it.  I decided to give it another go as the special offer for plums was still available.  This time I made it with 2:1 flour to butter which was much easier to crumb.

Plum & Apple Crumble

I layered the halved plums in individual pie dishes along with small chunks of apple, sprinkled with golden caster sugar – not much, only a couple of dessert spoons as I’m not a sweet fan.  The crumble mix was added on top along with chopped mixed nuts and baked in the oven at 180oC until golden on top and the fruit cooked through {about 30 mins}.

Yum!  Much better than the first attempt as it wasn’t so heavy 🙂 Perfect topped with vanilla ice cream.

    • Hi Natasha! Lovely recipe. Now I know one of the things I did wrong the first time – I tried to make the crumble mix with the oats instead of leaving to the end! LOL! Your way makes more sense although I did follow the prescribed method in the book {naturally for testing purposes ;)}…. Xx P

    • Thank you! I just love a good crumble – its simple comfort food! I received another cookbook this morning – James Martin’s Slow Cooking. My next attempt will be his apple and blackberry crumble topped with flaked almonds! I can feel the pounds landing on my hips in anticipation! Xx Paula
