  1. Heat oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Place the plum halves, skin side down, in the base of a large heatproof dish. Drizzle over half the maple syrup and roast for 10 mins.
  2. Meanwhile place the butter, flour, oats, sugar and cinnamon in a bowl and rub the butter into the mixture until you have rough crumbs. Stir in the almonds, then sprinkle over the plums. Drizzle the top with the remaining maple syrup and bake for 15 mins until the top is golden. Serve with custard.

Really tasty and quick and easy. Used golden syrup instead of maple and liked the fact there wasn't too much crumble, was nice and crunchy.

Didn't have any flaked almonds so sprinkled over 3 crushed amaretti biscuits. Family said it was the best crumble ever!

A taste sensation! Soooooo mouth-wateringly good! I made with the custard (recipe 8882)from goodfood too- will definitely make again!

I used golden syrup instead of maple and fine oats instead of rolled and the result is still really tasty!

Made it exactly as the recipe and found it delicious. By far the best plum crumble recipe I've come across.

A little bit dry, think the plumbs need to be broken up a bit. Crumble topping was delicious though

A total success for the family Sunday lunch dessert. Doubled the quantity crumble topping as suggested. Used a combination of equal amounts plain flour, wholemeal flour and a little jumbo oats. Omitted the flaked almonds due to young children dining.

Really delicious and very simple to make. Having read previous comments I double the quantity of crumble topping which was perfect, the recommended amount would not have been enough.

Sunday lunch dessert - a bit too little crumble topping. May try omitting flour next time and using just oats. Roasted plums in advance and added crumble topping just before cooking again. Served with vanilla ice cream. Yummy!

I didn't use oats as the family voted against - and made ordinary crumble instead - this is a fab recipe and I'll be using it again. The kids and grown-ups loved it - it's great with custard.

We had some plums given to us by a neighbour, so I thought I would use them in this recipe. Really quick and easy and a good result.

I wonder if I did something wrong, as I really wasn't impressed with this. I used half the quantity of topping specified but there was still far too much crumble for the amount of fruit, and, although it tasted nice enough, it was very dry. I might try again with a mixture of plums and apples, to get a bit more moisture into it.

this was really delicious, we had lots of plums in the house so i made it very deep. the maple syrup, plums and almonds work really well together.
