I can’t believe it’s September already! I have started my second month in Poland by moving into my own place, getting a sinus infection and losing my voice (for a few days) right after. Not a good start to the month but I made it through and am no longer living out of a suitcase! Yay! Unpacked and all. Although it still feels like I’m staying at an Airbnb in a new city, I sure hope I’ll get used to a daily life at my little apartment soon enough.
I figured there is no better way to make it feel home-y than to start using that new (!) oven ASAP. And since fall is just around the corner, here we are with the fruit of the month: PLUM!
The local fruit markets are full of them. All kinds and all sizes. The most popular type of plum in Poland though is Śliwka Węgierka and it will be a star of today’s recipe.
The crumble is the easiest thing you can bake with any fruit but, in my opinion, it really is the most delicious with the fruit harvested in autumn. Hello apples, pears and plums!
Fall is my favourite season of all for many reasons: beautiful foliage, layers of clothing, boots, oversized sweaters, hot drinks and warm desserts, so..
It’s time to cozy up on the couch with a good book and a bowl of this deliciousness!
Plum Crumble (Węgierki pod kruszonką)
100 g all-purpose flour
100 g sugar
100 g butter
50 g almond flakes
500 g plums (washed, halved and pits removed)
Preheat oven to 350°F / 180°C.
Place the plum halves, skin side down, in the base of a baking dish.
Put the butter, flour and sugar in a bowl and rub the butter into the mixture until it resembles course crumbs. Stir in the almond flakes, then sprinkle the mixture over the plums.
Bake until light golden brown (15-20 minutes).
Let cool a bit, get a spoon and enjoy straight out of the form!
That’s it! Easy, breezy and so good!
