This is an old German recipe that is impressive if served at the table or on a buffet. It is absolutely beautiful.

3/4 cup sugar 1/4 cup butter or margarine 1 egg 1/2 cup fat-free milk 2 teaspoons baking powder 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 1/2 cups flour 3 large fresh plums, pitted and thinly sliced

Topping

2 tablespoons butter or margarine 1/2 cup brown sugar 3 tablespoons flour 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon 1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. If using a glass or non-stick pan, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter a 7 x 11 or 9 x 9 inch baking pan. In a medium bowl, combine sugar and butter. Beat well. Add egg and beat. Add milk, baking powder, and salt.

Beat until well blended. Stir in flour. Spread dough in pan. Top with rows of plums. In a small saucepan, melt butter. Add brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, and nuts. Stir to mix. Sprinkle over plums. Bake for 25 - 35 minutes or until lightly brown and set in the middle.
