How to make it

  • Preheat the oven to 325* F
  • Butter the oven dish well.
  • Peel, core and slice the apples.
  • Place them into a bowl of water with a little lemon juice added, to stop them from browning.
  • . Halve, stone and quarter the plums.
  • If RIPE plums are used, they do not need to be peeled as the skin will break down in the cooking.
  • Put the apples into the saucepan with the lemon juice, water and sugar.
  • Bring to the boil and then cover and cook gently for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Add the plums and cook for a further 5 minutes, still stirring occasionally.
  • Pour the fruit into prepared oven dish and set aside.
  • Sieve the flour and cinnamon into the mixing bowl.
  • Cut the butter into small pieces and rub into the flour until it looks like fine breadcrumbs.
  • Drop tablespoonfuls of the batter over the fruit mixture, leaving gaps where the fruit peers through.
  • It looks sparse at this stage but it will expand in the baking process.
  • Scatter the walnuts over the batter if you are using them and then sprinkle a little brown sugar over to give an extra crunch and shine.
  • Bake for 25-35 minutes until the topping has a crisp golden brown crust and the fruit is bubbling.
  • Try not to open the door until near the end of as the topping is still technically a sponge - be patient! :+D
  • Enjoy!
