Peach/Plum Kutchen

Posted by

Kutchen is German for cake. This dessert traditionally has a bottom layer of cake with a top layer of fruit. This is a unique dessert that is easy, simple and so delicious. You can make this with peaches or with plums! The first time I made this was for my family, and we ended up eating the entire cake in one sitting!!



Cake portion:

1/2 C butter

1 C sugar

3 eggs

1 1/2 C flour

1 1/2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp vanilla

5. Pour fruit mixture over dough layer in pan. If it is   very liquidy then use a slotted spoon when putting mixture in the pan to allow for only some juice to get into the pan.

6. Bake for 1 hour in oven until fruit layer thickens, gels slightly and bubbles


Be sure not to eat the whole cake at once!
