Plum Crumble

/ Leave a Comment
My first pie! Well my first pie on my own... I was definitely nervous because baking is not my forte but this is probably the best recipe for someone who does not bake often.

  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 tbsp plus 1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 6 purple plums, cut in half and pitted
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted

  • Heat oven to 375 degrees, make sure to move a rack to the center so the plum crumble bakes evenly. 
  • Thoroughly mix brown sugar, 1½ tablespoons flour, ¼ teaspoon cinnamon and ground ginger. Add to plums and mix well. Arrange, skin side up, in ungreased, deep 9-inch pie plate.
  • Combine remaining sugar, baking powder, flour, cinnamon and salt. Mix well. Stir in egg. Then, using hands, mix thoroughly to produce little particles. Sprinkle over plums.
  • Drizzle butter evenly over crumb mixture. The butter has a tendency to roll down the topping and over the rim of the pie dish, so do this step carefully. Bake the crumble for 30 to 35 minutes. Remove from oven and cool for 10 minutes. 
  • Serve warm or refrigerate for up to two days or freeze well covered. If reheating, bring to room temperature then heat up in oven at 300 degrees. Best served with ice cream!
