"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."

  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.

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 to...

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...

Somebody complained about the taste of baking soda. I can't see anywhere in the recipe where it calls for baking soda.

I have never taken the time to rate a recipe, but this one is so good I had to. I will definately be making it again (and would probably be good with many other kinds of fruit as well). The cake...

Delicious! Didn't change a thing, and didn't need to! Sweet, tart, crispy and soft all in one pan.

Just had a slice out of the oven and this was bursting with fruity goodness. It uses a LOT of plums, so you may want to cut to 6 cups. Butter can be replaced with oil, and oil and sugar can all ...

Made this withfresh plums that had to be used up. OMG it was delicious! I served it warm with a bit of whipped cream on the side. This is definitely a keeper!
