Servings 4


  • All Purpose Flour – 1 cup
  • Powdered Quick Cooking Oats – 3/4 cup
  • White granulated Sugar – 1/4 cup
  • Brown sugar – 1/4 cup
  • Baking powder – 1/2 tsp
  • Cinnamon powder – 1/4 tsp
  • Salt – 2 pinch
  • Nutmeg - 2 pinch grated
  • Unsalted Cold butter – 100 gms
  • Plums – 5
  • Sugar – 2 tsp


  • Preheat oven to 190 Degrees C (375 F). Grease a 8×8 square tin and keep aside. I don’t have a square tin, so used by 8” round springform tin.
  • Prepare the dry ingredients by whisking together flour, powdered oats, both the sugars, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt in a mixing bowl. Keep aside.
  • Stone the plums and slice them thinly. I just sliced them all around the stone and discarded it at last. I did not remove the skin as well.
  • Cube the cold butter and using a pastry cutter work it into the dry ingredients. I just used my finger tips to work the butter into the flour. You can also use the hand mixer.
  • The mixture will look like bread crumbs. Divide it 1:3 by eyeballing the mixture and transfer 3/4 of the mixture into the prepared tin.
  • Press the mixture firmly to the bottom either with your finger tips or by using a small flat bottomed bowl.
  • Arrange the plum slices all around the base and at the end give it a pat down but do not press.
  • Now sprinkle 2 tsp sugar evenly over the arranged plum slices and then sprinkle 1/4 of the dough mixture kept aside, covering the plum slices completely. Do not press now.
  • Place the tin in the Pre heated oven and bake for 35 – 40 mins.
  • Cool it completely in the tin itself. If you want neat slices, let it cool in the refrigerator overnight or for 8 to 10 hours.
  • Cut into bars or triangles as per your choice.
  • Serve it as a breakfast along with a glass of milk or as a dessert.
