Plum Kuchen Recipe


2 eggs

1/3 cup milk

3 tablespoons butter, melted

1 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar, divided

1 teaspoon baking powder

1-1/4 teaspoons ground cinnamon, divided

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

6 medium plums, pitted and halved

Whipped cream and additional ground nutmeg, optional

How to make it

In a bowl, beat the eggs, milk and butter. Combine the flour, 1/2 cup sugar, baking powder, 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon, salt and nutmeg; add to the egg mixture and beat just until combined.

Pour into a greased 9-in. round baking pan. Place plums cut side up over batter. Combine remaining sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over the top. Bake at 375° for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely. Serve with whipped cream and sprinkle with nutmeg if desired.
