- 550g plums, quartered and stoned
- 4 tbsp apple juice
- 1 tbsp granulated sugar
- 125g plain flour
- 65g butter, chilled
- 65g caster sugar (or demerara sugar)
- Custard, to serve
Pre-heat the oven to 190C/170C Fan/Gas 5. Put the plums, apple juice and granulated sugar in a pan, cover and cook gently for 10 minutes or until the plums start to soften. Tip into an ovenproof dish.
Sift the flour into a large bowl. Cut the butter into small cubes and rub into the flour with your fingertips until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs (or you could do this in a processor). Stir in the sugar.
Sprinkle the crumble on the plums. Bake for 25 minutes. Serve with custard.
