About Thomas

I write because I can type. I can type because I have a keyboard.

I am a new age Australian resident that is experiencing this new continent with a fresh set of eyes. 

I write on a wide range of topics. Well, I write on food. There you have it, I write on a wide range of food as well. 


The perfect dessert served warm with vanilla icecream.

So, I wanted to something different with plums, given they are in season.

And that how the yumminess crumbles.

My usual routine is to go with an Indian plum cake -- a Christmas recipe handed down from generation to generation from the internet (ha, I got you there!). But I was more inclined to try something special and that’s where this after meal dish comes from.

It serves 4-5 people and takes an hour to make. But it is worth it.

Plum and pear crumble

Ingredients

  • 3 ripe pears, peeled, cored, cut into thin wedges
  • 1/4 cup caster sugar
  • 6 just-ripe plums, pitted, cut into wedges
  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup coconut, shredded
  • 1/4 cup almonds, flaked
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Vanilla icecream, to serve
  • Method

  • Preheat oven to 180C.
  • Heat a large (22cm base measurement) ovenproof frying pan over medium heat
  • Add pear and sprinkle with caster sugar. Add 1 Tbsp water. Cook, turning occasionally, for 5 minutes or until slightly tender.
  • Arrange plums over pears. Cook, gently turning occasionally, for 5 minutes or until plums begin to collapse.
  • Remove from heat.
  • Meanwhile, combine the flour, oats and brown sugar in a large bowl.
  •  Add butter and use your fingertips to rub the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse breadcrumbs.
  • Add the coconut, almonds and cinnamon and toss to combine.
  • Sprinkle evenly over the plum mixture.
  • Bake for 20 minutes or until golden-brown and heated through.
  • Set aside for 5 minutes to cool slightly.
  • And finally, serve with vanilla ice cream. Do you have a special dessert planned for Easter? Share it with us.
