The fruit crumble is a traditional British recipe that has many tasty variations. This dessert consists of a base of chopped fruit, like apples, covered by coarse crumbles made of a simple dough of flour, sugar and butter. Then is baked in the oven for a crispy top and a soft, sticky bottom. The crumble can be prepared in individual ramekins, souffle dishes or in a large pie dish.

To make this recipe we took inspiration from the traditional recipe, made it healthier and spiced things up. Plums are a perfect choice in terms of fruit as their pink juice bubbles through the golden crumbles on top caramelizing them and giving a beautiful fuchsia color. The ginger goes really well with the flavor of the plums and together they give this dessert a uniquely sharp, sweet and sour taste.

Finally, we have replaced butter with vegetable oil, substituted part of the flour with oat flakes and used unrefined brown sugar for a healthier, lighter version of this classic dish 🥧😋.

Preheat the oven to 180° C. Wash and cut the plums into small chunks and divide them among the ramekins. Consider using one ramekin per person. In a small bowl mix the sugar and ginger and sprinkle 15 g of the mix over the plums so that they are nicely covered.

In a medium mixing bowl, add the oat flakes, flour, sugar and ginger mix and stir well with a wooden spoon. Next, add the oil and the vanilla extract and knead until the ingredients are well incorporated. If the dough is too dry, add a spoon of water; if too sticky, add a bit of flour. The dough should have the right consistency that allows you working it into coarse crumbs with your fingers.

Sprinkle the dough crumbles over the plums so that they are completely covered. Distribute the crumbles among the ramekins until you have finished all the dough. The layer of crumbles should be as thick as the layer of plums. Place the ramekins in the oven in the middle shelf and bake for 35 minutes or until cooked through and golden on the top. After this time, allow the plum crumble to cool down a bit and serve with hot custard.

Enjoy!

Foodacious Tips


  • Sprinkle the top with a bit of water before baking to help the binding of the crumbles topping while cooking.

  • Try to add chopped nuts to the dough for extra crunchiness.
