Plum Crumble Pie

Since there’s a season of plums, and my parents currently have plenty, I have prepared a recipe for delicious plum pie with crumbles. Here’s an ingredient list.

The crust

300 g flour

100 g sugar

150 g butter

1 egg

Teaspoon of baking powder

Teaspoon of vanilla sugar


Plum filling

500 g plums

3 tablespoons of sugar


The crumble

120 g flour

80 g sugar

75 g butter

Teaspoon of baking powder

Teaspoon of vanilla sugar


Wash the plums, cut them in halves and remove the stones. Then cut them in quarters and cover them with sugar. Leave them for about half an hour to release the juice.

Prepare the baking tray for pie (butter it, then slightly cover with flour, so the dough doesn’t stick on it).

Take all the ingredients for the crust and knead the dough from it. Put in the baking tray and cover the edges well, too.

Pour away the juice the plums have released and arrange them evenly on the crust.

For the crumble, take all the ingredients, and knead them for a little bit so you get the crumbles.

Sprinkle them on the plums and cover the whole pie.

Heat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius and bake the pie for about 30 minutes. The pie is baked when crumbles get a nice golden brown color.

My family really enjoyed the pie. And a small tip: the pie goes together perfectly with a scoop of vanilla ice cream!
