Plum Crumble Recipe

I first found this recipe here but decided to make a few changes to make it my own and it still turned out to be amazing! I wish I still had some of this left it was that good. So here's how you can be very happy eating this too.


3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
1 tsp baking powder
3 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 cup (2 sticks) cold unsalted butter, cut into small dice
1 large egg
About 6 regular plums

  • Pre-heat the oven to around gas mark 6 and cover a tray in either foil or baking paper.
  • Slice the plums around the center and then twist to separate them into two halves and de-seed them and slice into pieces.
  • Set aside the plums as they won't be needed straight away.
  • Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl, except for the plums and egg.
  • Mix these together with your fingers (or whatever you prefer) this will be used as both the crumble base and topping.
  • After these look to be mixed together enough, add the egg and mix together in the same way again until you get a much more crumble-looking mixture.
  • Then you can use about three-quarters of this crumble mixture for the bottom of the crumble so fill your tray with about three quarters of this and press down so it sticks together.
  • Next you can add your plums, I liked to place the slices over each other so they gradually covered the whole of the base, but you could also scatter these to mix it up a bit.
  • And finally add the rest of the crumble mixture on top of the plums, BUT don't press down on it this time, leave it scattered but covered as much as you live for a nice crumble topping.
  • And then place in the oven for around 20-25 minutes or until the crumble top is looking golden.

Then ta-daaaa you have an amazing tasting plum crumble! Let me know if you decide to re-create this recipe, I'd love to see the results!
