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!
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 and family are anything like mine, once you serve them this plum crumble with ice cream, they’ll request it every time!
You can store leftover crumble in the refrigerator for up to 5 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months. It can be reheated in the oven at 350°F.
