The amount of sugar needed for this beautiful dessert will depend on the variety of plums used, as they vary so much in sweetness. It’s a good idea to taste them first and use your discretion.

You will also need four small cast iron pans or dishes (approximately 16cm in diameter) or a single medium-sized dish (approximately 20 x 32cm) for this recipe.

1
Place the flour and butter in a large mixing bowl and rub together with your fingers until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Add the caster sugar, ground almonds, half of the soft brown sugar (50g) and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon. Stir to combine

Sprinkle a few drops of cold water into the bowl and stir with a fork until you have crumbly, lumpy mixture. Place the bowl in the freezer for 10 minutes
3
Preheat the oven to 200°C/gas mark 6
4
Lightly grease your dish/dishes and arrange the plums in a single layer, cut-side up, dividing them equally if using more than one dish. Spoon over the orange juice
5
Mix together the remaining 50g of soft brown sugar with the orange zest and the remaining 1 teaspoon of cinnamon. Sprinkle evenly over the plums
6
Sprinkle the crumble mix evenly over the plums, taking care not to press it down. Then sprinkle the almonds over, finishing with a light dusting of soft brown sugar
7
Place the dish/dishes on a baking tray and bake in the oven for 30 minutes, or until the crumble is golden and bubbling. Serve warm with ice cream or cream
