from Cooking for Comfort by Marian Burros JadaOre
3/4 cup granulated sugar plus 1 or 2 Tbsp
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour, sifted
1 tsp baking powder
24 halves pitted Italian (aka prune or purple) plums
1 tsp cinnamon
vanilla ice cream - optional
Arrange a rack in the lower third of the oven. Preheat the oven to 350.
In an electric mixer, cream the 3/4 cup sugar and butter. Add the flour, baking powder, eggs and salt and beat to mix well.
Place in a 9 or 10" ungreased (I lightly oil) springform pan. Cover the top with the plums skin side down. Mix the cinnamon with the 1 or 2 Tbsp sugar and sprinkle over the top.
Bake for 40 to 50 min or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool to rm temp or serve warm with ice cream.
Note from recipe author: Torte may be frozen for several months, if well-wrapped. To serve, return to rm temp and reheat in oven at 300 till warm.
Note from Jada: If I'm in the mood for crumbles, I add this topping. Just omit the cinn and sugar topping called for in torte recipe and sprinkle this on top of the fruit instead.
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 1/4 cup flour
1+ tsp cinnamon
1 cube butter, melted
Mix first three ingredients, add melted butter, sprinkle whatever you can resist eating on top of the fruit and bake as directed.
