Plum crumble

I always end up buying fruits and almost forgetting about them till they are ripe and need urgent attention. I was wondering what to do with so many ripe plums that were in the fruit bowl and thought of a plum crumble.
I had all the ingredients anyway and the preparation requires hardly any time! :)

Serves 4 (or 2 very greedy people)


400 gm ripe plums halved and stoned

20 gm demerara sugar
1 &1/2 tsp grated ginger
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp plain flour
20 gm ground almonds

For the Crumble

120g plain flour
40g castor sugar
40g demerara sugar
50g butter
1 tsp demerara ( to sprinkle on top)


Preheat the oven to 200C/180C fan oven.

Place the halved plums in a shallow baking dish.

Mix together the ingredients (not the crumble ingredients) - flour, ground almonds, cinnamon, ginger and demerara sugar together and sprinkle on top of the plums.

Mix in the crumble ingredients together gently using the tips of your fingers or put them in a food processor. Make sure not to over process. The mixture should retain a crumbly texture.

Scatter on top of the plums to cover all the plums.
Sprinkle some demerara sugar on top of the crumble mixture.

Bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes. Leave to cool slightly ( 10 minutes). Serve with cream.
