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.

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!

Lovely recipe! I added some almond essence to the base layer for extra oomph and a bit more plum on top - delicious!

I made this tray bake last week. It was really fun to do, followed the recipe exactly and it came out perfectly. Eaten very quickly by friends and family. Will be making this again. Looked impressive for the amount of time it took.

WOW! these are fantastic. My plums were a bit sour so I stewed them with a bit of sugar first. The contrast between the sharpness of the plums and sweet almond flavour was superb. Everyone loved them and were gobbled up in no time. I used a bit of almond essence in the batter too for extra flavour. Will definitely make again

This worked really well. Plums came out nice and juicy and it was a real hit with my husband! It was a little on the heavy side which made it rather filling, but otherwise it was delicious.
