This plum crumble, or plum crisp, contains fresh plums topped with a fabulous crumb mixture, and the easy topping is made with a lightly spiced mixture of flour, sugar, and butter.
A crumble is an excellent way to use fresh plums, and other fruits may be added to the fruit filling, such as sliced pears, nectarines, apricots, or peaches. Or add some blueberries. Or replace the plums with pluots (plum-apricot hybrid fruits).
To make single-serve desserts, divide the filling and topping among four to six buttered ramekins.
