This easy crumble has a crunchy topping with spices and citrus notes surrounding the plums within.

800g ripe plums, halved and stoned

50g light brown sugar

Finely grated zest 1 orange

1 tsp ground cinnamon

1 tsp plain flour

For the crumble

250g plain flour

150g butter

80g caster sugar

80g demerara sugar

50g ground almonds

Preheat the oven to 200°C / 400°F / Gas mark 6.

Put the plums into the base of a shallow gratin or baking dish about 28cm long.

In a bowl, combine and mix together the sugar, orange zest, cinnamon and flour and sprinkle over the plums. Spoon over 2 tablespoons of water.

Put all the crumble ingredients into a food processor, and using the pulse button, blitz until it just starts to clump together.

Scatter the crumble over the plums and bake in the oven for 30–40 minutes until golden brown.
