This bottomless plum crumble recipe is a great alternative to the yeast plum cake with crumble or streusel on top and is a delicious dessert. It can be served as is or topped with whipped cream that melts over the warm dessert or even some vanilla ice cream.
Other crumble variations are made with apples, peaches, red currants, gooseberries, raspberries or even a mix of combinations. This depends on seasonal availability.The crumble or sometimes even called crisp can be flour based, or mixed with nuts, or rolled oats. It can be spiced with cinnamon, cloves or nutmeg. This depends on the taste that you prefer, but each spice influence smells and tastes delicious and sometimes adds a particular health benefit too.
We use a round heat proof glass dish which is about 21cm in diameter. It makes about 6 to 8 portions.
Plum crumble is best served when it is still warm. It also goes well with whipped cream, vanilla sauce, or some ice cream.
