Really great pudding. I put some stem ginger in with the plums and if I have no maple syrup in I add some stem ginger syrup instead. Really nice served with creme fraiche, icecream or custard!

Didn't think there was enough topping for the amount of plums - overall disappointing result. Better to make a regular crumble topping and then add the almonds to it instead
