My whole family loved this! It was a great way to use the plums that came in our basket from Bountiful Baskets.
7 cups pitted and quartered plums (about 15 plums)
2/3 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
3 cups all-purpose flour, sifted
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups milk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Grease a 9 by 13 inch baking dish.
Place the plums in the bottom of the prepared baking dish.
With an electric mixer, beat together the 2/3 cup of butter and the 1 1/2 cups of granulated sugar until light and fluffy.
Beat in the eggs, 1 at a time.
Add the 3 cups of flour, baking powder, and salt.
Mix in the milk and vanilla extract to make a smooth batter.
Pour the batter over the plums.
In a small bowl, mix together the 1 cup of sugar, 1/2 cup butter, 1/4 cup of flour, and the cinnamon.
Sprinkle over the batter.
Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cobbler comes out clean, 45 – 60 minutes.
