I remember my mother making plum kuchen. She never followed a recipe, but this recipe tastes like hers.


  • 2 large 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


  1. 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.
  2. 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 in 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.
