Crumble In Air Fryer
Yesterday on RT we shared with you how to make a delicious air fryer apple crumble and how it was one of my favourite crumbles and that you can very easily mix and match ingredients to make different fruit crumbles.
We even talked about our air fryer cookbook which features a blueberry crumble.
Well, today, I wanted to show you that crumble in air fryer doesn’t have to be apple and how you can make a delicious plum crumble in the air fryer too.
And out of all crumbles the plum crumble is the one that shouts out AIR FRY ME a lot more than any other because its so much better than the traditional method.

Shop Local Air Fryer Challenge
We love shopping local and have a favourite greengrocer that we get weekly veggie boxes from and a local butcher that supplies a lot of the meat you see on Recipe This. We often find that the quality is much better, and the prices are similar too. We challenged ourselves to make as many meals as possible out of a veg box + meat box and share with you the results.
This air fryer recipe is one of those recipes and click here to view our air fryer shop local recipes.
Can You Cook A Crumble In An Air Fryer?
Yes, you can cook a crumble in the air fryer, and you will love doing so. Crumbles are just perfect for the air fryer because you can use the air fryer to cook the fruit and make the crumble topping crispy and golden.
What Can I Do With Plums?
Plums are brilliant because they are soft and have a similar texture to peaches and nectarines, anything you would do with peaches you can do with plums.
Yet, plums are not celebrated like peaches are.
So, if you have a peach cobbler recipe such as our slow cooker version, you can swap the peaches for plums.
You can also use plums to make a delicious plum dessert recipe.
Or how about using the air fryer dehydrator setting (if you have one) for dehydrated plums.
How Do You Dehydrate Plums In An Air Fryer?
To dehydrate plums in an air fryer I recommend you follow our air fryer dehydrated peaches recipe. You can then use this to dehydrate plums in the air fryer as well as other similar stone in summer fruits.
Why Is My Fruit Crumble Soggy?
Your fruit crumble is soggy because there are too many juices from the plums and they have created this soggy texture.
The secret to avoiding a soggy fruit crumble is to reduce the cook time that the plums do in the air fryer, get the crumble topping on sooner, then finish the crumble in the air fryer.

Air Fryer Crumble Ingredients
Fruit – for the filling of our plum crumble recipe we used six plums. We are big fans of grabbing some fruit from your fruit bowl, rather than going grocery shopping just to get some cooking fruit. You can also mix it up add blackberries and make a blackberry and plum crumble.
Sugar – We also recommend some sugar to sprinkle over the plums before air frying. Then you can also add some golden syrup too, that will make it even more delicious.
Crumble – Then for that amazing crumble mixture we recommend unsalted butter, granulated sugar, plain flour, and rolled porridge oats. Plus, if you like some extra flavour, you can also add in some cinnamon.
Can You Recommend An Air Fryer?
I often get asked which air fryers I recommend and which one I use. In 95% of our air fryer recipes, we use either the Philips Air Fryer XL or the Cosori XL because they are the best ones, we have found out of many air fryers we have tried over the years. You can click on the links above and read up on them.
Plus, we recommend you head over to our air fryer recipes category as we have more than 500 tried and tested everyday air fryer recipes and have been air frying for 10+ years.
Get Some Ramekins!!
We bought some gorgeous ramekins for the air fryer, when we first got into air fryers, that were very similar to these ones.
They are one of those amazing air fryer accessories that you must own, and you can do so much with. I use them all the time and have used them in air fryer banana souffles, air fryer baked oats, and even for reheating a small sauce in the air fryer.
🤜Be sure to click here and order some for your air fryer and just think of all the different ways you can use them!!🤛
How To Make Plum Crumble?
- Prep. Add the crumble ingredients into a mixing bowl and rub the fat into the oats, flour, and sugar until it resembles coarse breadcrumbs, then put to one side.
- Fruit. Chop the plums, discarding the stones and place into ramekins, spreading the mixture out until almost at the brim.
- Sprinkle. Next add to the chopped plums the remaining sugar and drizzle with golden syrup. Place the ramekins into the air fryer basket. Air fry for 5 minutes at 180c/360f.
- Fill. When the air fryer beeps, fill the top of the ramekins with the crumble mixture. Air fry for a further 8 minutes at 180c/360f before serving.
Why I LOVE Plum Crumble In Air Fryer?
We have all read the recipe for plum crumble and how you need to stew the plums first before you can then create your plum crumble.
The air fryer method is much better, because you partly air fry the plums and then add the crumble topping when the air fryer beeps, making this a much easier method for summer fruit crumbles.
Does Plum Crumble Freeze Well?
Yes, plum crumble does freeze well. You can freeze the fruit crumble pots in the ramekins and then defrost and reheat in the air fryer as and when you need it.
