Delicious Plum Crumble

Today I would like to share one of my favorite recipes from Nigella Lawson. It’s a delicious plum crumble, which is perfect for Sunday baking. When you don’t want to spend too much time at the kitchen, but still desire a yummy desert, this exactly what you need!


cooking - baking Ruby Red Plum Crumble

What you will need:

2 tbsp of butter

1 kg plums (quartered)

2 tbsp of sugar

Juice and zest of a half of lemon

100 gr of amaretti biscuits

150 gr flour

1 tsp of baking powder

100 gr fridge-cold butter (cubed into small pieces)

3 tbsp of white sugar

Ice cream/custard to serve


Pre-heat the oven to 190C/375F.  Melt butter in a large pan. Add plums and sprinkle with sugar (2 tbsp). While stirring add zest and juice from lemon. Cook for a couple of minutes with a lid off and few minutes with a lid on. Transfer the plums into a pie dish and set aside while you prepare the crumble topping.

Put amaretti biscuits into a freezer bag and crush them with rolling pin. Sprinkle a few tablespoons of the crumb mixture over the plums. Pour the remaining crumbs in a bowl and mix in flour and baking powder. Add the butter cubes and rub them into the mixture with your fingers or with a mixer. The mixture should look like a large-flaked oatmeal when it is done. Add the amaretti crumbs and 3 tbsp of sugar and mix with a fork. Pour the mixture over the fruit in a pie dish, starting with the edges as this helps to stop too much leakage. Place on the baking sheet in the oven and bake for about 30-35 minutes. Remove and allow to cool for 15 min before serving with ice cream, cream, or – my favorite choice – custard.
