plum kuken

2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
¾ cup sugar
½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp baking soda
¾ cup butter
1 cup milk
1 large egg
½ tsp vanilla
about 8 black plums
3-4 tbs brown sugar
Combine flour, sugar, baking powder and baking soda. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. In a separate bowls, whisk together milk, egg and vanilla and pour over crumbs. Bring mixture together with a fork just to moisten; do not over mix. Spread batter into a prepared 18by13-inch baking sheet. Slice plums and toss in brown sugar. Arrange over batter. Bake at 350F for 25-28 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean. Cool completely before slicing into squares and serving.
