Plum Kuchen

There’s nothing better than a good coffee cake, especially one that balances sweetness with sour/bitter tastes.

My cupkeiki has been asking for a plum cake. I’ve not been sure why, but we bought some plums from Ela Family Farms and I searched for recipes. I was a little hesitant to bake plums, afraid that not only would my cupkeiki not eat what was requested but that everyone else would turn it down too.

Instead she asked constantly for “just a little bit” before diner and after dinner she devoured the slice we shared. Everyone else that tried it liked it too, so a win for baked plums!

What I used for the cake:
1/2C. Sugar
4Tbs. Butter
2 eggs
2 heaping spoonfuls of 2% Fage Yogurt
1 C. Whole Wheat Pastry Flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
2 tsp. vanilla
4 and a half plums, cut in half and pitted
My Heaping Spoonful

For the topping:
1/4 cup sugar
2 Tbs. Whole wheat pastry flour
2Tbs. Butter
2tsp. Cinnamon

What I did:
Preheat oven to 350F. Grease and flour an 8×8 inch glass baking dish.

For the cake:
Best sugar and butter until creamy. Add eggs and yogurt, mix well. Add dry ingredients. Mix well, and pour into prepared baking dish. Top with plums.

In a small bowl, mix together crumb topping ingredients, and spread over batter and plums.

Bake, uncovered in preheated oven for 35 min or until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean.
