Too many plums? Bored of pies and crumbles? Grateful thanks then to Nigel Slater for this from his kitchen diary and the idea of plum crisp.
Halve plums, remove stones and layer on bottom of buttered dish. Give a small sprinkle of cinnamon and then cover with a mixture of white breadcrumbs and dark sugar. Then pour some melted butter over that lot. His suggestion is:
1 kg plums
125 gms breadcrumbs
75 gms sugar
75 gms butter
35 mins in a medium oven then serve with vanilla ice cream. Terrific.
