Why I Love This Recipe

I received this recipe from a German friend of mine she serves it on Holidays and special occasion's. It is similar to coffee cake but filled with sweet fruit and topped with chopped nuts and a drizzle of icing. It makes a very attractive dessert, that can be served anytime.

Ingredients You'll Need

1/2 cup butter,softened
1/2 cup shortening
1-1/2 cups sugar
4 eggs
1 teaspoon almond extract
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
6-7 medium unpeeled plums,thinly sliced
5-6 medium unpeeled Golden Delicious apples,thinly sliced

Streusel Topping:

1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup cold butter
1/4 cup chopped pecans


1 cup confectioners' sugar
1-2 tablespoons milk


In a large mixing bowl, cream butter, shortening and sugar. Beat in eggs and extracts until blended. Beat mixture on high speed for 3 minutes. Combine the flour and baking powder; gradually add to creamed mixture. Spread the batter into a greased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan. Arrange plum and apple slices over batter.

For streusel, combine the flour and brown sugar. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs; stir in pecans. Sprinkle over fruit. Bake at 350 F. for 40-45 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on a wire rack. For glaze, whisk confectioners' sugar and milk until smooth. Drizzle over streusel.
