My husband made this tonight. The crumble part is lighter than what I'm used to, but it was light in a very nice way. We didn't have enough plums, so he used some apples in it and it was great. I hope he makes this again. Thanks for posting this.

I had some plums I really needed to use up. I chose this recipe because we really like apple and rhubarb crumble, so I could guess this would be good. I didn't use any ginger as we're not to fond of it and used grinded oatmeal for half of the flour. Absolutely perfect and a great combo with the slightly tart plums. Thanks for posting!
