Streusel Plum Cake
Halved plums or other fruit
Packed brown sugar
Grease 8" square cake pan, 9" pie plate or springform pan.
Beat egg white in a small bowl and set aside. In large bowl, cream together margarine, sugar and egg yolk until fluffy. Combine flour and baking powder, beat into egg mixture alternately with milk. Fold beaten egg white into batter.
Turn into prepared pan. Halve plums (or slice peach, apple, pear, nectarine) and arrange over top.
Streusel topping: in a small bowl, combine brown sugar, margarine and cinnamon. Mix well and sprinkle over fruit.
Bake at 350 F for about 35 minutes or until top is golden and toothpick inserted into cake comes out clean. Time depends on thickness of batter.
Glaze: Combine icing sugar, milk and vanilla. Mix well. Drizzle over cake.
My notes: original recipe halved makes 5 servings, but it tasted so good warm that we only cut 4 servings. Warmed up in microwave for the second meal. Use extra fruit (fresh or canned) to make 6 servings. Would be nice served at a brunch - moist but not too sweet. Tested with fresh nectarines!
