Ingredients

  • 8 ripe plums, halved, stone removed
  • 4 tbsp maple syrup
  • 50g butter, cut into pieces
  • 50g plain flour
  • 50g rolled oats
  • 25g golden caster sugar
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • 25g flaked almonds

Tip

Make double
Make double quantities of the crumble topping, then freeze it ready for next time. There’s no need to defrost it first.

Method

  1. Heat oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Place the plum halves, skin side down, in the base of a large heatproof dish. Drizzle over half the maple syrup and roast for 10 mins.

  2. Meanwhile place the butter, flour, oats, sugar and cinnamon in a bowl and rub the butter into the mixture until you have rough crumbs. Stir in the almonds, then sprinkle over the plums. Drizzle the top with the remaining maple syrup and bake for 15 mins until the top is golden. Serve with custard.
