Welcome back to my beautiful and tasty Kitchen Corner
Today is all about the sweet and sour … juicy and delicious plum in a crumble.
What do you do when you have too many plums?
Besides maybe using them in a savoury dish…I usually just eat them fresh 🙂
But this time I have found an easy and quick way to make a delicious dessert.
Ingredients: 750 g plums (stoned), 2tbs sugar, 2tsp grated lemon, 1 tsp cinnamon.
For the crumble: 240g plain flour, 150g unsalted butter at room temperature, 80g caster sugar, 80g Demerara sugar and 50g ground almond.
To serve: cream or ice-cream 🙂 (I’ve used cream this time around)
Method: Pre-heat the oven to 180°.
Wash the plums and remove the stones. If the stones are difficult to remove, you can always just slice the pulp off close to the pit.
Mix the plums with the sugar, grated lemon and cinnamon and place them into a oven-proof dish with a bit of depth.
Place all the ingredients for the crumble into a food processor and mix until it comes together, it should resemble to a sandy mixture with no lumps.
Spread the crumble mixture on the plums and place the dish into the oven for about 35 minutes or until it becomes golden brown and you can see the plum juice sizzling on the sides… this was the highlight of the preparation 🙂
Serve while still warm no matter if you use cream or ice-cream as topping.
It’s one of the best recipes I have tried for a plum based dessert…
Let me know what you think 🙂
