Plum and Orange Oat Crumble

Dessert, Uncategorized | February 20, 2010 | By

This is dessert from last Sunday, I was just too busy this week to blog it. As usual it started out as a different recipe, Peach and Orange Oat Crumble, but they had plums on special offer in Tesco and I wouldn’t buy peaches just now anyway. The combination of the plums and orange was really nice. I still have half the crumble mix left in a jar in the fridge for another crumble.

Plum and Orange Oat Crumble 8 plums 1 tsp ground cinnamon 3 tbsp caster sugar 50g wholemeal flour 2 oranges 25g jumbo oats 1 tbsp Demerara sugar 25g butter or margarine 1. Preheat the oven to 200C/Gas Mark 6 2. Cut the plums in half, remove the stones, and cut in quarters. Place in an ovenproof dish. Scatter the cinnamon and caster sugar over the top. 3. Zest the oranges on a fine grater into the bowl then, using a serrated knife, cut away the peel and segment the orange over the plums. 4. Put the flour and oats into a bowl, rub in the butter or margarine, mix in the Demerara sugar, then pile the crumble on top of the fruits. 5. Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes until golden brown on top. Serve hot with low-fat custard or virtually fat free fromage frais.

    Such a nice hearty dessert to warm you up on this cold nights we're having. I love plum crumble but have never tried adding orange to it, great idea.

    Are you sure extra thick double cream wouldn't be better?

    It all looked brilliant until you got to fat-free fromage frais.

    Yes, well you might get away with double cream, but us girls have to be more careful lol!

    Mmmm, that sounds like it would be wonderfully tart – perfect crumble! (and plums are better than peaches for a crumble in my book, any day of the week!)

    Plum crumble sounds just the right sort of pud for this cold and inclement weather we are getting. I'm with VegBoxBoy on the cream front though – surely you're doing a good work out on all those kitchen worktops.
