Ingredients
  • 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
Method
  • 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.
