As the plum season here in Israel is slowly fading I chose to make this seasonal fruit crumble because its easy, fun, and most importantly tasty. I’ve made this with pretty much every fruit you can think of. Depending on the season. I’ve made this recipe in the restaurant, during my private catering events, and even at home as a tasty dessert for the evening. Apples, nectarines, are also great fruit substitutes for this. You don’t need a mixture for the dough, and you can choose to serve this with either whipped cream, ice cream, or sour cream. All work great. There’s something homey about this recipe that no matter what keeps you from making it over and over again. You can choose to finish the cake with powdered sugar or even a drizzle of honey if your like extra sweetness.

  • It’s important the the crumble is cold and a bit chunky, you want the butter chunks be used that will be your chunky crumble. You can save the crumble in the freezer if you didn’t use all of it and use it for the next crumble every time.
  • This is a two part crumble, the fruit and then the crumble on top. About 40 minutes in the oven or until golden brown.
  • The fruit are marinated and become fully cooked and soft in the oven not to worry!
  • I recommend finishing the pit with vanilla ice cream, but you can choose whichever topping you desire.
