I adapted this recipe and made it with Rhubarb instead, as we have a glut. It was really easy and tasted delicious; a great alternative to crumble, fool or with custard!

Didn't think this was going to work out as the plums were so watery before the bread was added - but I persevered and was glad I did as it was delicious both hot and cold
