Cinnamon Plum Crumble with Kerrygold

It is getting to the time of year when a good hot pudding is the perfect way to finish a meal.

What better excuse to kick start the autumn puddings than a lot of plums that needed eating and a lovely block of Kerrygold butter.

Plums offer a quick and easy way to make a lovely crumble pudding. With the addition of dried fruits and cinnamon this is a real autumnal pudding treat with a rich and buttery topping.

This is what I did...

Cinnamon Plum Crumble


8 large plums, stone removed and quartered
50g light muscovado sugar
100g mixed dried fruit with candied peel
1 cinnamon stick

For the crumble:

125g Kerrygold butter, cubed
125g light muscovado sugar
125g plain flour
25g chopped hazelnuts
50g muesli


Pre heat the oven to 180C fan

1 - Place the quartered plums in a pan with the muscovado sugar, mixed fruit and cinnamon stick and place on a medium heat

2 - Cook for 10 minutes before removing from the heat

3 - To prepare the topping place the butter, muscovado sugar, plain flour, hazelnuts and muesli in a large mixing bowl and rub in the butter to create a heavy breadcrumb consistency

4 - Pour the fruit into an oven proof dish

5 - Scatter the crumble mixture over the top and place in the centre of the pre heated oven for 20 minutes

This pudding is delicious served as it is or with custard or cream. The butter gives this topping a rich texture which goes perfectly with the plums.

Having a deliciously warming pudding is a great way to welcome the colder weather!

Keep an eye out, next month, for the redesigned Kerrygold's butter.
