Orangette's Plum Crumble
1 1/2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
For the topping:
cup Scant ¾ granulated sugar (about 4 to 4 ½ ounces)
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1 egg, beaten well
7 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
Position a rack in the center of your oven, and preheat the oven to 375°F.
In another medium bowl, combine the dry ingredients for the topping: the granulated sugar, flour, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt. Whisk to blend well. Add the egg. Using your hands, mix thoroughly, squeezing and tossing and pinching handfuls of the mixture, to produce moist little particles. Sprinkle evenly over the plums.
Note: To reheat leftovers, it’s best to do it slowly, in an oven set to 300 degrees.
