The plum frenzy continues... Taking advantage of the abundance of our plum tree, I have made a Plum, Spelt and Oat Crumble. It was really delicious so I am sharing the recipe with you. This recipe is wheat free so even if you have a wheat intolerance (like myself) you can also enjoy it. Of course you can substitute wheat flour for the spelt flour if you like.
For a serving for 6 people you will need:
• 700g plums halved and stoned
• 1 tablespoon lemon juice
• 1 tablespoon spelt flower
• 50g muscovado sugar
• 100g spelt flour
• half teaspoon cinnamon
• 100g muscovado sugar
• 100g butter or margarine
• 75g rolled oats
thick Greek yogurt or vanilla ice cream
Preheat the oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Cut the plums in half and remove the stones. Place in the baking dish and sprinkle with 1 tbsp lemon juice.
Add 1 tbsp spelt flour and 50g muscovado sugar and toss the plums in them.
Prepare the crumble: Place the flour, cinnamon, sugar, butter and oats in a bowl and mix it with your fingers until the crumble forms. It should not be allowed to form a ball, but be quite loose.
Sprinkle the crumble on top of the plums and put in the preheated oven.
Bake for 30-35 minutes or until the crumble is a nice golden color.
Serve hot with a thick Greek yogurt or vanilla ice cream.
