Plum Crumble Recipe

You just can’t beat a good crumble at this time of year and plum is one of our favourites. We always buy far too many plums and this is the perfect way to use them up – such a hearty, warming dessert that the whole family will love.

Crumbles are such a hearty dessert and one that is so traditional over the winter but we love them all year round, just varying the main ingredient to suit the season. We have a lovely nectarine crumble recipe and also a strawberry and vanilla crumble that are fantastic for the warmer months.

This easy crumble topping has a really lovely mix of oats and nuts added to it, making it so sweet and moreish compared to a more traditional crumble recipe.

It’s a topping that works well whether you’re having an apple crumble, rhubarb crumble or even this plum crumble. You could even add a sprinkle of cinnamon if you wanted. It really is a lovely recipe to enjoy at home.

How do you serve plum crumble?

We really enjoy a crumble served simply with custard but vanilla ice cream can be a real treat too. Crumbles are always our favourite family dessert recipes – full of fruit and delicious!
