Plum Crumble with Vanilla Ice Cream
Plum crumble is one of my absolute favorite old family recipes that I return to time and time again! It’s the ideal comfort food; delicious on its own with warm, moist plums topped with a nutty, buttery crumble… and if you’re in the mood for even more decadence, just add a scoop of vanilla ice cream! This recipe takes only about forty-five minutes in total, so if you have last minute company, you can make it in a pinch!

Plum crumble is one of my absolute favorite old family recipes that I return to time and time again! It’s the ideal comfort food; delicious on its own with warm, moist plums topped with a nutty, buttery crumble…
- 10 plums, cut in halves
- 2 tbsp. brown sugar
- 1 tbsp. cinnamon
- ½ cup flour
- ½ cup butter, melted
- ½ cup sugar
- ½ cup nuts, chopped
- 1 tbsp. cinnamon
Preheat oven to 390°F.
Place the plums cut in halves in a bowl and chop them (we just want to create an uneven and moisturized texture). Put the pieces in a non-stick pan over medium heat. Add ¼ cup water and 2 tbsp. Brown sugar, cinnamon and cook until soft (about 5 minutes).
For the crumble, put flour in a large bowl, add melted butter and run with finger tips till the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Add sugar, nuts, cinnamon and mix.
Put the plum mixture in a baking dish. Sprinkle the crumble mixture over it and bake for 25-30 minutes (or until golden brown).
Let it cool slightly. Serve with ice cream.
I have to admit, on cold winter mornings, I’ve been known to whip up a pan of warm plum crumble for a special breakfast in bed. My kids love it, and it’s always a hit at potlucks and parties. Although, I'll give you fair warning; if your friends are anything like mine, once you serve them this plum crumble, they'll request it every time!
