Full of fruity flavor, this moist plum cake is topped with nuts and has a homey, old-fashioned look and texture, notes Clackamas, Oregon's Betty Doane. "The recipe is quite old and was given to me by one of the best cooks I know. It's a delicious dessert served warm with whipped topping."
- 1 egg
- 3/4 cup canola oil
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon grated orange peel
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1-1/2 cups chopped canned plums, drained and patted dry
- 1/4 cup chopped pecans
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- In a large bowl, beat the egg, oil, sugars and orange peel. In another bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; gradually add to sugar mixture (batter will be thick). Fold in plums.
- Spread into a greased 11-in. x 7-in. baking dish. Combine the topping ingredients; sprinkle over batter.
- Bake at 350° for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack. Yield: 12 servings.
