Fresh Plum Crumb Dessert

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by AmyZoe

A friend gave me fresh plums, and she shared this recipe. This is phenomenal. This recipe won the Taste of Home 'On the Road' Contest. It's a keeper. Serve with a scoop of ice cream if you like. It was fantastic warm from the oven with no topping in my opinion.

I made this recipe yesterday and it was fabulous! I followed the recipe exactly as written except at the end I did not drizzle it with 1/2 cup of melted butter instead I placed little shavings of butter on top of the batter in numerous places. It browned evenly and everyone in the family thoroughly enjoyed it. I will be making this again soon.
