Apple and Plum Crumble

I have finally started baking properly again, and I am very excited about that AND that means more recipe blog posts!!

Today I am showing you a plum and apple crumble recipe that I have kind of put together from a few from books I own. I tasted a plum and apple crumble whilst out in Cornwall and it was so delicious I needed to make it for myself, so here it is, my makeshift crumble:


  • 4 Plums
  • 5 Apples
  • 225g Plain Flour
  • 75g Butter
  • 75g Soft Brown Sugar
  • 4 Tablespoons Granulated Sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons Water
The Steps:


Peel your apples and cut them into cubes. Cut your plums in half, remove the stones and also cut these to the same size as your apples cubes.


Then add your apples, 2 tablespoons of water and your granulated sugar into a saucepan on a low heat to soften.


Add you flour and butter together in a mixing to make your crumble topping. To combine the ingredients use your fingers to rub it all together, then add your brown sugar, rub together and keep going until it looks like the top of a crumble (small lumps/how it looks in image below.)


Now add your plums to the saucepan, at this point I also added some sultanas we had lying around and cover, leaving to steam. After about 2 minutes I then transferred the fruit mixture into an oven-proof dish, added the crumble topping and placed in the oven (160°C fan oven/180°C) for 40-45 mins.


Take your crumble out of the oven and you are now finished to eat it however you may want to!

I definitely think this is the perfect Autumn dessert!
