|Our Plum Trees|
4 cups of plums, peeled, cut up and pitted
1/3 cup of all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup oats
1/2 cup of cold butter
In a large bowl, mix plums, flour, sugar, and cinnamon together and then pour into a 9 inch, deep, cake pan. In another bowl, measure in flour, brown sugar, and oats and then cut in cold butter with a fork until it's crumbly. Spread the topping over the plums.
Place pan on a foil-lined cookie sheet to catch any overflow during baking. (The plums do release a lot of juice so the deeper the pan the better.) Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 45 minutes or until golden brown. Cool for 30 minutes. This is great with ice cream or whipped cream.
Note: We like a thicker topping but if you don't, just reduce the 1/2 cups to 1/3 cup of each ingredient. This freezes really well, I will make a bunch and freeze them unbaked in the disposable foil pans you can get at the dollar store. I then bake these from frozen at 425 degrees for about 20 minutes and then lower the temperature to 350 for about 45 minutes. I've also made this with a pie crust on the bottom for a Plum Crumble Pie.
