Plum and Orange Oat Crumble
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.
