Haven't eaten it yet but it looks & smells fantastic. I did double it all up so that I can freeze some & have a sneaky pudding on a school night.'s picture

Divine. If you like crumbles, this is gorgeous. I made it using the exact same ingredients but doubled it as I had 8 for lunch. I used individual ramekins instead of a large dish. I cooked the plums first and then left them all to finish cooking later. It was so good I shall definitely make it again.

Simple and delicious. I used golden syrup on the plums and maple syrup on the crumble. Lovely.

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

This is lovely, so quick to make and very popular, I do find the amount of crumble a bit stingy, I double the amount of crumble mix.
