Happy Friday Treat - Plumapple Crumble

Plums & apples may not yet be in season,
but it’s always time for this treat, which is
assembled mostly from cupboard ingredients.

This little crumble has a lovely combination of flavours
and textures somewhat akin to stewed rhubarb.
If you have a can of plums just waiting to be used up,
then this is the recipe for you!

Plumapple Crumble (makes 1-2 servings)


1 – 14oz can of *plums, drained & pitted

4 oz sweetened applesauce
(or add 2 tbsp sugar or honey to unsweetened applesauce)
¼ tsp cinnamon

*or 3/4 cup lightly stewed fresh plums


1 one-serving packet of instant oatmeal
(I used organic apple-cinnamon oatmeal)
1 tsp flour
1 tsp butter
¼ tsp cinnamon

Preheat oven to 375°.

Lightly grease a 1 ½ cup baking dish with butter.
Roughly chop plums in a mixing bowl and grate
the apple directly into the plums.  Fold in the

Stir in the cinnamon and pile all into the baking dish.

Assemble topping: Combine oatmeal & flour, add cinnamon,
and rub in the butter until the mixture has a crumb-like

Cover the fruit mixture with the topping.
Bake in 375° oven on top of either a baking sheet
or a sheet of tinfoil to catch any drips, for 45-50 minutes,
or until bubbling around the edges.

Let cool for at least 30 minutes before eating.
