Crumb Topped Plum Dessert

After the plum jam, I proceeded to make an array of desserts with plums. Plum crumb is very simple and easy recipe that I kept making it over and over again. This well-known purple red stone fruit makes an exciting addition to your list of desserts. Plum is full of nutrients and is the summer’s prettiest fruit. Before the peak season escapes, I decided to work with them for desserts.

Like a cheery light colorful lady that deserves a starry role in a good movie, the plums were dressed with a coat of rich buttery cinnamon scented crumb top that blends very well with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream or a dollop of rich vanilla whipped cream. Cream and Ice-creams can turn your simple fruit to a luxurious dessert. This spiced cinnamon crunch crumb tastes like muffins and forms a crown overtop the tangy studded diced plums. It is a perfect dessert to end your meal that is classy and simple. So go ahead and flaunt this tasty, delicious, full of flavor dessert to your friends and family. This recipe serves six….

  1. Plums diced and pitted- 12 nos.
  2. Natural brown sugar- 1 cup.
  3. All-purpose flour- half cup.
