Plum and walnut crumble

Plum and walnut crumble

Ingredients (serves 6):

  • 800g red plums
  • Plum and walnut crumble100g caster sugar
  • 175g flour
  • 75g soft butter
  • 75g brown caster sugar
  • 100 to 125g walnuts

Preheat the oven (200°C, gas mark 6-7).

Wash the plums, open them in two and remove the stones. Scatter them into a dish, sprinkle on the caster sugar and mix.

Put the flour into a large bowl with butter (melted at room temperature and divided into small pieces), then rub together quickly using fingertips. Add the brown caster sugar and roughly crushed walnuts.

Alternative method: put all of the ingredients into a mixer and mix for a few seconds until it becomes gritty. To achieve this, cold butter should be used instead of softenend butter. Spread this mixture all over the fruits.

Place in the oven at mid-height and leave to cook for 40 minutes, until the surface is golden brown. Serve directly after removing from the oven.
