A cross between a cake and a loaf bread, with sweet-tart plums and a brown sugar topping. Just like my mother-in-law used to make. Use plain, lemon, or orange yogurt.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray a 9x5-inch loaf pan with cooking spray, or line with parchment paper.
  2. Sprinkle chopped plums with 1 tablespoon of flour in a bowl, and toss to coat. Set aside. In a large bowl, beat the margarine, white sugar, and vanilla extract with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs. In another bowl, sift together 1 1/2 cup of flour with salt and baking soda. Stir the dry ingredients into the egg mixture, alternating with yogurt until the mixture forms a smooth batter. Lightly stir in the flour-coated plums, and pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan. Sprinkle the top of the batter with brown sugar.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean, 45 to 50 minutes. Remove from oven, and let cool in the pan 10 to 15 minutes before removing from pan for slicing.

Just made 2 loaves. Added 1/2 c more of the plums and I didn't have yogurt so I used sour cream , used 1/3 c butter. I added in 1/2 tsp of orange extract also. Very yummy!! Thanks for sharing

This is such a great recipe as is. Or you can easily mix it up just by changing the yogurt, fruit and topping. My daughter loves it with plums and mixed berry yogurt. I love it with cranberries and vanilla yogurt and sliced almonds on top ( add almonds 1/2 way thru cooking so they do not burn). Make it with mixed berries or oranges or bananas or just about anything you can dream up. And with so many flavors of yogurt the combo's are endless. Also try a crumb topping with or without nuts. This is such a great basic recipe to play with. I've done so much with it and it alway's turns out great and moist. Thank you so much for sharing your recipe It's in my "Special" cook book now!

The pan of this stuff did not last long! Plums gave it a slightly tart flavor, which is a great contrast to the sweetness of the bread. I lacked enough white sugar, so I used 1/4 cup white and 1/4 cup brown sugar. Did not have margarine, so used softened butter instead. Also, added chopped pecans to the top, right underneath the brown sugar topping. Easy to make, and worth it!
