A rustic and sweet Plum Crumble that has the perfect ratio of fruit to crumble!
I’m a chocolate girl through and through, but there’s something rustic and nostalgic about a homemade crumble that I can’t resist. This Plum Crumble is top of my list when I want something with fruit, which isn’t often but once I dig in it’s game over.
Do I have to use plums?
Really, you can use any in-season fruit, but if you’re curious you have to give the plums a try. I don’t even bother peeling the plums here. It’s unnecessary and I’m all about making your life easier!
How to make crumble
The trick here is getting the right ratio of topping to fruit, and if you ask me, it’s all about that crumble. Don’t be afraid to have a heavy hand here! For this recipe we’re using…
I usually use a food processor to mix everything together, but this time I just got in there with my hands. Not only was it more fun and less dishes, it created this amazing texture! The oats didn’t get blended so it was thick and crunchy and just…SO GOOD.
Serving Plum Crumble
I love how this looks in one big dish, but you could also do individual servings! Just bust out a handful of ramekins and assemble them that way. Of course, you’ve gotta serve it with vanilla ice cream. When it melts over a warm crumble?! That’s the spot. If you have leftovers they’re great at room temp, too!
- 10-12 plums, diced into 1 inch pieces
- 2 tablespoons coconut sugar (or brown sugar)
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 tablespoon flour
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup old fashioned oats
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup flour
- 8 tablespoons unsalted butter, cubed
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a large bowl mix together the plums, coconut sugar, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon and 1 tablespoon flour. Pour into a 9 inch pie dish or baking dish and set aside.
- In another bowl use your hands to mash together the granulated sugar, oats, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, salt, 1/2 cup flour and butter. Sprinkle the crumble topping over the plum mixture and bake for 30-35 minutes until lightly browned and bubbly. Serve warm on it's own or with vanilla ice cream.
