Method

  1. Heat oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4. Butter and line a 20 x 30cm baking tin with baking paper. Put the butter, sugar and ground almonds into a food processor, then pulse until the mixture resembles very rough breadcrumbs. Spoon out half the mix into a bowl and set aside.

  2. Add 140g flour into the mix in the processor and whizz until it just forms a dough. Tip into the tin and press down with the back of a spoon. Bake for 15-20 mins until golden. Leave to cool for 10 mins.

  3. To make the filling, put the remaining butter and the sugar and almond mix back into the processor, saving a few tbsp for the topping. Add the eggs, the 25g flour, cinnamon and baking powder and whizz to a soft batter. Spread over the base.

  4. Top with the plum pieces and a little extra caster sugar and cinnamon. Bake for 20 mins, then sprinkle with the remaining crumble mix and flaked almonds. Cook for another 20 mins or until golden. Leave to cool in the tin before slicing.

This is so delicious. I have made it twice in the last 2 weeks, trying to use up a glut of plums but would easily work with other fruits, particularly stone fruits. Easy to make and the recipe works perfectly. Freezes well too.

Delicious. Mine had to be dairy free but you couldn't tell from the result, which was wolfed down as a warm pudding and then sliced and eaten cold with cups of tea later.

Just made this not sure where I went wrong, base is overcooked, crumble is dry, in-laws on the way!!!

Fabulous - a bit messy to make and it did take 15mins longer to cook but very very yummy. Will make again

We loved this traybake. I used half sugar and half sweetener to cut down the calories (a bit) and increased the flour to make up volume and it worked just as well.

Gorgeous! Didn't have enough ground almonds so used extra flour and was still yummy!

Made this with some fresh autumn Victoria plums from a friends garden. Absolutely delicious. Even hubbie loves it and he's not a fan of nuts!

So tasty, made this to use up some of our home-grown plums. I too found that the mixture did not quite form breadcrumbs but it still turned out lovely. Just wondering if anyone has tried freezing it? I've got lots more plums and would like to freeze some of the slice for my mum's Macmillan coffee morning.

Hi there, thanks for your question, the topping would freeze well. Thanks.

I think to get the right consistency of crumble you need to add a bit of flour to the mixture, otherwise the mixture is too doughy.
