Our take on Martha Stewart’s recipe!

1 cup sugar
8-10 plums, sliced in eights
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/4 cups flour
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
2 eggs
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/2 tsp almond extract
1 tsp vanilla extract

1. Whisk together 3/4 cup sugar, salt, and flour. Add butter or margarine. Set aside half the mixture. Add baking powder and 1 egg to the other half and press into the bottom of a 9-inch shallow baking dish.

2. In another bowl, whisk together 1/4 cup sugar, the remaining egg, the cream, and the almond and vanilla extracts; set aside.

3. Top batter in baking dish with plum slices. Pour the cream mixture over the plums, and sprinkle with reserved butter-flour mixture. Bake at 375 degrees Fahrenheit until topping is golden brown and the plums are tender, 40 to 50 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.
