  • 3/4 pounds ripe plums
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 1/2 Cup light brown sugar

  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 stick butter
  • 1/4 Cup light brown sugar
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 4 Tablespoons milk
  • 2 ounces walnut pieces
  1. Preheat the oven to fan 160C/ conventional180C/gas 4. Butter a 1.5 litre ovenproof pie dish.
  2. Peel, core and slice the apples. Halve, stone and quarter the plums. Put the apples in a pan with the lemon juice, sugar and 1 tbsp water. Bring to the boil, then cover and cook gently for 5 minutes. Add the plums and cook for a further 5 minutes.
  3. Turn the fruit into the prepared dish. Tip the flour and cinnamon into a bowl, add the butter, cut into small pieces and rub in with your fingertips. Stir in the sugar, then add the egg and milk and mix lightly to a soft batter (this can be done in the food processor).
