    Very nice!  -  31 Dec 2014


    Perfect recipe for all those plums you don't know what to do with. I added two eggs because mine were small and sprinkled my plums with cinnamon and vanilla before adding the batter. After putting the batter on top I sprinkled just a little brown sugar on the top. Thanks for a wonderful recipe!  -  28 Aug 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Needed something extra so I added allspice and vanilla with a dash of cinnamon...I also mixed all the dry ingredients with the egg and butter. Poured it in a pie pan! Then added some various berries on top! It is a really good summer treat!  -  15 Aug 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
