“We used to make this as a great way to sweeten the tart plums from the tree in our yard, but any plums will do. Great when served warm with vanilla ice cream.”

Original recipe yields 1 9x13-inch cake

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish.
  2. Place the plums into the bottom of the prepared baking dish. In a large bowl, mash together 2/3 cup butter with 1 1/2 cup of white sugar until the mixture is smooth and creamy. Beat in eggs, one at a time. Stir in 3 cups of flour, the baking powder, and salt. Mix in the milk and vanilla extract to make a smooth batter. Pour the batter over the plums. Mix 1 cup of sugar, 1/2 cup of butter, 1/4 cup of flour, and cinnamon together in a bowl to make a crumbly topping; spread over the batter.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean, 45 to 50 minutes.

Made this tonight for my DH and SIL, (sorry I don't care for desserts). They both gave this a solid 5 stars and said that it was really delicious. DH really wanted a second piece but he was already too full. I made this recipe exactly as posted. Thanks so much for posting this recipe. I will keep it in regular rotation, as it was fairly easy to make.

Excellent plain or with vanilla ice cream! I'd recommend adding the milk one cup at a time so it doesn't splash everywhere when you mix it in. I'd also suggest not softening the butter in the topping and just cutting it into the mixed dry ingredients instead. If it's soft, then the topping is very gooey and not crumbly at all. Tastes fine either way, but it's just hard to glop the topping on the top of the batter if it's gooey.

I was looking for a new way to use our plums when I came across this recipe. This is the best plum desert I've had in a long time and everyone I fed it to thought it was fantastic. I did have to make one change thou, I had to bake it an additional 10 minutes as the center wasn't done. I will diffinently use this one again next year when my plums are ready. Thanks for sharing Mark
