Fruit crumbles are warm and comforting. Look for Cortlands, Macouns, or any apple variety suitable for baking. Here, they’re mixed with plums and covered with an oatmeal topping.
|2 1/2||cups old-fashioned oats|
|3/4||cup brown sugar|
|1||cup (2 sticks) chilled unsalted butter, cut into 1-inch pieces|
2. Refrigerate until ready to use.
|Butter (for the dish)|
|10||baking apples, peeled, cored, and cut into 1-inch wedges|
|1||pound plums, cut into 1-inch wedges|
|1||tablespoon ground cinnamon|
|1/2||cup maple syrup|
2. In a bowl, combine apples, plums, cinnamon, and maple syrup. Mix thoroughly.
3. Top the fruit with the oatmeal mixture. Bake the crumble for 50 minutes or until the top is brown and the mixture is bubbling at the edges. Serve with vanilla frozen yogurt or ice cream. Catherine Smart
