Plums are in season in the UK from August to October, so now is the perfect time to treat yourself to a delicious plum crumble.

We like the sound of this one from our friend and local food writer Anna Stanford of Anna’s Family Kitchen.

Anna says “I’ve used plums in my crumble but you could use blackberries, apples or pears. I’ve made a batch of granola for the topping. Half can be roasted and kept for breakfast during the week. The other half is piled on top of the plums and baked in the oven.”

Here’s what you need to know…


Serves: 6
Prep: 5 minutes
Cooking: 40 minutes
Total: 45 minutes
Difficulty: easy


For the Granola mix together:-
300g porridge oats
80g mixed seeds
80g flaked almonds
80ml maple syrup
3 tbsp rapeseed or coconut oil
3 tbsp Apple juice
½ tsp Maldon Salt

For the plums:- 800g ripe plums, such as Victoria, halved and stones removed
½ tsp ground all Spice
2 tbsp runny honey
Zest of one orange


Mix together all the Granola ingredients in a bowl.

Put the plums in an ovenproof dish and sprinkle over the all spice, orange zest and squeeze over the honey.

Spoon over the Granola mix.

Bake in an oven at 160 degrees for 30-40 minutes. Halfway through fork over the top so that the nuts and seeds don’t catch.
