I seriously love these¬†plum crumble muffins! The plums give excellent colour and flavour, and I love the crumble on top for some extra crunch and delight. My mum’s plum trees are doing well again this year, so I have plenty more to cook with so there’s definitely going to be another batch of these in my not-too-distant future! They were an excellent treat to take to work to keep me motivated while I get back in to this whole being-in-the-office thing, that’s for sure.

I’ll probably also turn some of them in to plum compote, and there’s likely to be a cocktail or two in the making while I’m at it! Lucky I have so many plum recipes in my archives now, there’s something for all occasions!

As I head in to the next year of this little blog of mine I want to say a huge thanks to every one of you for hanging out in this part of the internet with me. You’re all delightful folk, and it’s been a wonderful part of the last 7 years getting to virtually get to know so many of you!
