Sour Cream Plum Kuchen

by Heidi Lindberg
(Camrose, Alberta)

1 cup butter, softened
2 cups sugar
4 eggs beaten
1 cup sour cream
1 tablespoon lemon flavouring
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
5 cups flour

Preheat oven 350 degrees
Cream butter and sugar. Add beaten eggs and beat well. Add lemon flavour.
In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder and baking soda.
Combine flour with creamed mixture alternately with the sour cream. Mix well to combine. Dough will be quite thick.
Grease and flour two 9 x 13 pans. Divide dough in half and spread evenly in the pan.
Wash and dry about 2 pounds of prunes. More may be needed. Cut then in half and stand then up close together in the pan.
Spread with sugar, cinnamon and Minute Tapioca ( I used 1 cup of sugar, as much cinnamon as you like and about 1 tablespoon of Tapioca)
Bake in 350 degree oven for approximately 1 hour, or until toothpick come out clean.

Please note: I did not have enough sour cream to make 1 cup. I only had 1/2 cup, so added 1/4 cup full cream and 1/4 cup milk.

Plums

I would love to bake one but can't find the plums here in North Carolina

Sounds delicious
by: Oma Gerhild

Heidi,

Thanks for sharing your plum cake recipe. It really sounds very easy and delicious.

I see that you also lined your pans with parchment paper. I LOVE the use of the binder clips to keep the paper in place. Awesome tip.

I'm looking forward to trying this recipe the next time I find the prune plums. I hope the season's not over yet :)

Blessings,
Oma Gerhild
