This popular tart can be served as a side dish along with your entrée or as a light dessert.
1 stick margarine, softened
3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
12 small (Hungarian or Italian) plums, pitted and cut in half
1 teaspoon cinnamon or more, to taste
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Cream the margarine and the 3/4 cup of sugar. Add the flour, baking powder, eggs, and salt and beat to mix well. Batter will be soft.
Spoon the batter into an ungreased 9” springform pan or 9” quiche dish. Arrange the plum halves or slices on the batter. Mix the cinnamon with the remaining sugar and sprinkle over the top.
Bake for 40 to 50 minutes, until a cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove from the oven and let cool; refrigerate or freeze if desired. Serves 8
