Now I will just say here that I used ground almonds in the crumble and not chopped, also I used more plums than stated in the recipe and the type I used was Victoria plums but any type is fine. Once cooked the cake was still quite 'gooey' in the middle but we rather enjoyed it this way...however if you want a firm cake right to the middle you may want to cook it a little longer than stated. It was delicious and one I will make again...maybe next time with some different fruit and variations in the crumble too. We had it warm...myself with fresh double cream and my kids with ice-cream.

  1. This looks a bit like the rhubarb crumble muffins that I made.

    1. It does Sue..I never did get around to having a go at making those...maybe next year...or even rhubarb in this one. Thinking about it I suppose you could make this in small cases too.

  2. Fruit crumbles are just the best!! Oh how lovely...especially with the Autumn weather setting in. I love this, Tanya, and with a scoop of ice cream...I can only imagine how wonderful it must have been! :)

    Have a beautiful afternoon!

    1. I do like the fact that no matter what fruit you have lying around it can always be made very quickly into a crumble for those chilly autumn days!!

    1. We never tried it cold Ann..we always re-heated it...I think it would taste great cold too though...maybe I should double check next time I make one!!

  4. Thank you Tanya for those kind words of encouragement. I do feel good that I actually got something planted. Looking at the other side of the allotment is depressing, but I reckon I will get there eventually.
    Its so hard to fit it in with life and work, but I will keep at it.
    Thank you again Tanya and thanks for visiting.

    1. No Problem Dave...it's always great to receive some positive feedback when you are first starting out...I remember how daunting it was when I first got my allotment so I know exactly how you're feeling. From what I see though you are going about everything exactly the right way!!

  5. Dear Tanya, I never made a cake with plums. It looks so good. I would love it warm with vanilla ice cream and whip cream too. I think this would be delicious too with blueberries.
    Blessings dear friend. Catherine xo

    1. Plums are wonderful in cakes Catherine...I think I use them as much as I do apples in desserts as we always have so many when they are in season. You should definitely try baking with them...they're delicious!!
