Fruited Coffee Cake

I love family recipes with lots of tradition behind them. This recipe, like the recipe for pierogi I shared almost two years ago now, comes from my hubby’s grandma. She was a very good cook indeed, and my mother-in-law told me that she used to make this delightful coffee cake often, in which she always used grandpa’s canned plums. Since I had already canned some plums just like his earlier in the fall, I figured it was as good a time as any to break open a jar to snack on and to make this coffee cake. The recipe comes straight from one of her most-loved and used cookbooks – the FCSLA Slovak-American Cookbook, which my mother-in-law gave me for Christmas. It’s so much fun to flip through the pages and look at many of grandma’s favorite recipes. And after this one, I can’t wait to try more!
Recipe adapted from the FCSLA Slovak-American Cookbook.
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees and grease an 8″ round cake pan. In a medium bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until fluffy. Add in the egg and beat well.
Beat in the flour and salt until well-blended.
Turn the dough into the greased pan and place the fruit on top. Sprinkle with the cinnamon-sugar mixture and dot with the butter.
Bake about 35 minutes.
Cut into wedges and serve warm.
