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.

A little bit of a fiddle but well worth it - yummy! A bit like bakewell tart but with plums. I only used 200g of ground almonds after the comments and the mixture was a little doughy but it didn't seem to matter. Will make again. Perfect with a tea or coffee or with custard for pudding.

This recipe is fab! I made it for work and my boss paid me to make him some more for him, great! I used more plums than recommended for extra pluminess. Highly recommended.

I served this with a sauce made from pureed plums and increased the amount of plums given in the recipe. We thought it delicious.

Very easy to make and delicious. As a big fan of almonds i left the recipe as it was and loved it as did my husband. Have been asked to make this again very soon.

I've made this many times but used frozen mixed fruits (usually red berries) as I'm not keen on plums and use vanilla extract in the filling instead of the cinnamon. I found it hard to cut up without losing the flaked almonds on top so last time I made it in individual bun cases, it was a bit more fiddly but the end result was worth it. They are so popular, friends and family love them.

Its a bit late for plums so I used cooking apples peeled, cored and sliced instead. It worked very well but a bit heavy on the ground almond I thought!

Really delicious - especially warm with custard. I used less ground almonds than the recipe suggested too as they are not my favourite and it was really yummy.
