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.

  • 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.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean, 45 to 50 minutes.
