Mom would make this German delicacy and other sweets a day ahead to keep the oven free for the roast goose. Similar to coffee cake, this attractive dessert is filled with sweet fruit and topped with chopped nuts and a drizzle of icing. -Rosemarie Forcum White Stone, Virginia

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 1, 2012

I thought it was a bit dry. Next time, I think I will not bake it as long, I'll try about 35 minutes. But otherwise it was excellent. It was a hit at work

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 2, 2011

I thought this turned out great! I made it in a bit bigger pan, so it was thinner, more like bars, but very good. Next time I'll try it with just plums!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 16, 2010

I am an avid baker, and I found this dessert to be rather dry, and bland. The fruit was had a nice taste (but then again, fruit usually does when baked), but that is all I can really say that was good about this recipe. I found that the almond extract was completely unnecessary, and probably ruined the taste for me. I make a "mean" Apfelkuchen, and this recipe falls short.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 28, 2010

Batter worried me in the beginning because it was so light. Don't panic. Held up the fruit. I did use a mandillion slicer which was extremely helpful in making paper thin fruit slices.
