Finaaaallyyy the days become shorter and colder. Perfect time for souldfood. Guess what jumped right into our minds? – “crumble”!
Luckily it is plum season right now, so we could´t keep from putting those underneath that crisp and sweet crust.
Usually crumble dough consists of butter, sugar and flour. The special thing about our crumble recipe is, that it comes with much better nutritional values! In addition to the fruity taste of the plums we have oat meal and nuts and with the different types of flour you can decide how rich you want to have it.
- 750 g plums
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 2 tbsp sugar
- 20 g oats
- 100 g processed nuts (almonds and/or hazelnuts)
- 150 g flour
- 120 g sugar
- a few drops of vanilla extract (or other kind of vanilla)
- 120 g vegetable butter (cold)
- Wash, halve and stone the plums. Slit the opposite side of the hole where the stalk was.
- Mix 1 teaspoon of cinnamon with 2 tablespoons of sugar and place the halved plums tightly in an ovenproof dish.
- Then sprinkle the cinnamon & sugar mixture evenly over the plums.
- Now prepare the crumble. Put the oat flakes, nuts, flour, sugar, vanilla and cold butter (in small pieces) together in a bowl.
- Then knead this with your hands until the crumble dough is formed. So it shouldn't be smooth, but really crumbly.
- Now pour the dough over the plums and put it into the oven. Bake with convection 180°C (350°F) with top and bottom heat 200°C (390°F) for 30-40 minutes, depending on the oven.
The crumble can be prepped to be ready just when you need this warm delicacy, for example after your nice dinner with family or friends.
Another possibility is of course, to use other fruits than plums! Apple or pears are also very delicious when warm. Try what ever you like!
