Plum Buckle With Pecan Topping

"This classic is usually made with blueberries but sweet plums make a delicious alternative. Serve with ice cream, whipped cream or yogurt. Although cook time says 50 minutes it could be anywhere between 40-50 minutes, so check after 40 minutes. For the batter, be sure to have eggs and butter at room temperature."

directions

  • Heat the oven to 350°F and arrange a rack in the middle of the oven.
  • Coat an 8-by-8-inch baking dish with butter and set aside.
  • For the topping:

  • Using a pastry blender or your fingertips, work brown sugar, flour, butter, cinnamon, and salt together until ingredients come together but some pea-size pieces remain. Stir in pecans, cover, and refrigerate until ready to use.
  • For the batter:

  • Whisk flour, baking powder, and salt together in a medium bowl until evenly combined; set aside.
  • Whisk together milk and vanilla extract in a small bowl until evenly combined; set aside.
  • Combine sugar and butter in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment and beat on medium speed until light in color and fluffy, about 3 minutes.
  • Add eggs one at a time, letting the first completely incorporate before adding the second.
  • Add 1/3 of the flour mixture and mix on low until just combined; scrape down the sides of the bowl.
  • Pour in 1/2 of the milk mixture and mix on low until just incorporated.
  • Repeat, alternately adding dry and wet ingredients and ending with dry ingredients, until completely incorporated.
  • Remove bowl from mixer, fold plums in until coated and evenly distributed, and turn into prepared baking dish.
  • Sprinkle topping evenly over batter and bake until a tester inserted into the center comes out clean and the top is golden brown, about 45 to 50 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and let cool at least 20 minutes before serving.
