Maple Plum Crumble

Maple Plum Crumble

8 ripe plums, halved, stones removed

4 tbsp maple syrup

50g butter, cut into pieces

50g plain flour

50g rolled oats

25g golden caster sugar

½tsp ground cinnamon

25g flaked almonds

Heat the oven to 180C fan. Place the plum halves, skin side down, in a large heat proof dish. Drizzle over half of the maple syrup and roast for 10 mins. In a mixing bowl add the butter, flour, oats, sugar and cinnamon and rub together until you have a rough crumb. Stir in the almonds. Sprinkle the crumble over the plums and drizzle the remaining syrup over the top. Bake for a further 15 mins until the top is golden. Serve with vanilla ice cream or whipped double cream.
