I'm excited to let you all know that I've joined a wonderful group of hostesses participating in This Week's Cravings. My co-hostesses are: Tina at Moms Crazy Cooking, Kristen at From My Tiny Kitchen, Angie at Big Bear's Wife and Nicole at The Daily Dish. As hostesses, we will try our hardest to visit as many of the links we can. We all enjoy your links and look forward to gathering recipes each week.
And today is the linky party's First Anniversary, hence the "cakes" theme. This year the party is sticking with the same SIMPLE RULES and now all of the themes for the entire year are list here on the THIS WEEK'S CRAVINGS tab at Moms Crazy Cooking, plan ahead, check out the weeks you want to make sure to link up or just browse them to see what's going on.
- 2/3 cup Bisquick or flour
- 2/3 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1/4 cup cold butter or margarine
- 2 cups Bisquick
- 2/3 cup milk or water
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 1 egg or egg substitute
- 2 cups diced black plums (about 5-6)
- 2 tablespoons chopped nuts (I used pecans)
- 2/3 cup powdered sugar
- 2 to 3 teaspoons milk
In a medium bowl, stir together 2 cups Bisquick, 2/3 cup milk, the sugar and egg; beat 30 seconds with spoon. Spread half of batter in pan. Arrange plum pieces on batter; sprinkle with half of streusel topping. Spread with remaining batter; sprinkle with remaining streusel topping. Sprinkle with nuts.
Bake about 25-30 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan on cooling rack 20 minutes. In small bowl, stir glaze ingredients until smooth enough to drizzle. Drizzle glaze over warm coffee cake.
This cake was fantastic and incredibly simple. I actually like the plum version much better than the original apple, which I've made before. The husband and kids liked this unusually (for us) sweet breakfast treat.
