Plum crumble

Delicious and crunchy crumble with plums, apricots and redcurrants. Spiced with ginger and vanilla.

This crumble is really easy to prepare. All you need to do is to whiz all the topping ingredients in a food processor, slice the fruits and mix them with sugar and spices and then bake it all in the oven for 40 – 45 minutes until golden brown.

To bake the crumble we used large individual ramekins but these amounts of ingredients are enough to fill a deep ovenproof dish. Plums should be firm and a bit acidic, they will give great texture and flavour when baked.

We served our crumble with a dollop of sour cream (can be replaced with natural yoghurt). Enjoy!
