Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup plus 2 Tbsp (170 g plus 30 g) of white sugar
  • 10 fresh plums (we use Santa Rosa), sliced and seeded - about 4 cups
  • 2 Tbsp corn starch
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup (110 g) all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup (50 g) butter
  • 1/4 cup (60 mL) milk
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten

Method

1 Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C).

2 In a large bowl, combine 3/4 cup white sugar, plums, cornstarch and cinnamon. Place the fruit mixture in a 2-quart casserole.

3 In a medium bowl, combine the remaining 2 Tablespoons of sugar, flour, baking powder and salt. Cut the butter in with a fork or pastry blender until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in the milk and egg until just moistened.

4 Drop batter on fruit, or if desired, spread batter in stripes. Bake in a 350°F oven for 35 minutes.

Serve with whipped cream (optional).
