Peach & Plum Crumble

While I was out in the New England countryside, we bought some farm fresh peaches and plums and decided to make a crumble.
Peaches and plums define summer for me and make a perfect pair together,especially in this.
The topping for the crumble had to be the best I had ever tasted and the fruit was perfectly sweetened and produced this wonderful pink syrup.
We enjoyed this crumble with some vanilla ice cream and fresh raspberries on the side. 
A big thank you to my mother-in-law to be, for creating this recipe with me :)

For the fruit:
  • 3 peaches (sliced)
  • 4 plums (sliced)
  • 1 tablespoon orange juice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
For the topping:
  • 1/2 cup almond meal
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup cold butter (1 stick)
  • Pinch of salt

Start by slicing the peaches and plums and layering them inside a 9 inch oven dish.

Mix together the orange juice and vanilla extract and pour all over the fruit and then sprinkle over a teaspoon of sugar.

Pre-heat the oven to 375F.

For the topping add all of the ingredients to a large bowl and begin to rub everything together between your fingers until you are left with a well combined mixture.

Crumble the topping over the fruit to evenly cover.

Bake in the oven for about 30 minutes.

The topping should be golden brown and the fruit should be bubbling underneath.

You can eat this straight out of the oven or you can leave it to cool and then reheat it again if you want.

The crumble is perfect with vanilla ice cream or a dollop of creme fraiche.
