Plum Kuchen Tips
What kind of plums should you use to make plum kuchen?
Choose fresh in-season plums that yield slightly when pressed gently with your thumb. Hard plums are not as juicy and are tougher to cut—but you can ripen your fruit on the counter
for perfect results. While color choice is completely up to you, red-skinned plums with golden interiors make really pretty plum desserts.
How do you store plum kuchen?
Store plum kuchen, covered, at room temperature. Eat within a couple of days. Like other coffee cake recipes
, this kuchen is best enjoyed the day it’s made!
What can you serve with plum kuchen?
Coffee, brunch salads, milk, tea and smoothies
are all great accompaniments to plum kuchen. Also consider sweetened whipped cream
, vanilla ice cream, almond brickle ice cream, or this delicious hot almond drink
—because a hint of almond beautifully accents the flavor of fresh plum! —Christine Rukavena, Taste of Home Senior Book Editor
