My all time favourite dessert is a crumble, and after Sunday Lunch when I was young, there was always a crumble in the oven, made with apples, rhubarb or blackberries. I’m not sure I could make my own crumble that matches up to my mum’s, but I have given it a go!
Ingredients (Serves 6-8)
- 700g of fresh plums
- 2 tablespoons of maple syrup
- 2 teaspoons of cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon of ginger
- 150g of oats
- 100g of ground almonds
- 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
- 4 tablespoons of coconut oil, melted
- 6 tablespoons of maple syrup
- 2 tablespoons of coconut sugar (optional)
Preheat the oven to 190°C/170°C Fan/375°F/gas 5
Start by chopping each plum into about 8 chunks (no need to peel), we don’t want them too small. Place the plums into a sauce pan with the maple syrup, cinnamon and ginger. and then simmer for about 5 minutes. Pour the fruit mix into a large ovenproof dish and put to one side.
Mix in a large bowl all of the ingredients for the topping apart from the coconut sugar if you are using it. You should have a sticky mix of oats and ground almonds. Cover the fruit with the crumble, and if you are using the coconut sugar, sprinkle this over the top to give the crumble a nice crunch.
Place in the oven for 35 minutes and leave to cool for 20 minutes before serving. Store in the fridge for up to 4 days. Enjoy!
