Baking with Plums

Plum Custard Kuchen

I bought plums last week, put them in the refrigerator and forgot about them. When they finally made an appearance yesterday from their hiding place, they were very ripe. Zeynep and Mehmet eat plums only when they are firm, but even they could resist this juicy plum kuchen. The recipe is from this site.

Plum Streusel Coffeecake

Since we had more plums to rescue, we tried this recipe from It was delicious with juicy plums layered between a cake base and a crunchy topping. But I think that we like Plum Custard Kuchen just a smidgen more.
