Plum Crumble


Plum Crumble


This recipe is for plum crumble but if you have apples, or fresh apricots, or various other fruit that you want to use instead, feel free.


  • 750g (1lb 10oz) plums ( I don’t bother stoning but you can if you prefer)
  • 45g (1½ oz) granulated sugar
  • 3 tbsp water
  • 125g (4½ oz) plain flour
  • 100g (3½ oz) rolled oats (or you can use all flour if you prefer)
  • 100g (3½ oz) soft butter
  • 45g (1½ oz) brown sugar



  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F). Place the plums and the water and sugar in a saucepan and bring to the boil and simmer for about 10 minutes or until soft.
  2. Place the flour in a large bowl and add the butter in small pieces. Rub the butter into the flour with the tips of your fingers until it looks like breadcrumbs.
  3. Then stir in the oats and sugar.
  4. Place the plums and juices into a bowl ( any shape will do but mine was about 25cm x 20cm and 5 cm deep) and place the crumble evenly over the fruit.
  5. Bake in the oven for 20 – 35 minutes or until the crumble is golden brown. Serve warm with cream, ice cream or custard. Enjoy!


You could also make an Apricot Crumble or an Apple Crumble using the same weight of fruit instead of plums, or you could do Apple and Plum or Apple and Blackberry crumble. My favourite is Apple and Raspberry Crumble where I just add a couple of handfuls of raspberry to the mix instead of apples.
